The fact that a sports coach is worth more on a college campus than an educator or a dean speaks volumes about America's priorities, I don't care
where the money comes from. Why aren't these people donating to various schools within the college to help further the students' education? At the
very least, what about donating to the school that you majored in?
Well maybe someone out there actually would like to debate you on that. But if you look again you may notice I did start by acknowledging that the
map in question is still sort of true; I just figured people wouldn't have any trouble comprehending that part, especially around here.
But honestly, I'm not even sure if by legal status they actually even ARE public employees. I would guess that the athletic associations are private
non-profits and the football coaches are employed by them and thus private sector employees.
And as for others at the University perhaps not being paid enough, I think, given your point about priorities, it's worth mentioning that the
obscenely high cost of higher education now even at public colleges and universities was driven mostly by the rapid rise in the salaries of deans,
professors, and administrators over the past ~30 years.
