Avi Snyder, commenting on the huge salary of Ohio State University’s former President Gordon Gee:
According to the Chronicle of Higher Education‘s recently released salary survey, Gee isn’t an outlier. While perpetually-increasing tuition squeezes family income and puts a college education out of reach for many, the median compensation for public (i.e. heavily taxpayer-funded) college presidents is $478,896–higher than the base salary of the President of the United States.
Obscene is too kind a word.
