The above map, from here,
really demonstrates how completely insane higher education has become.
That's a map of highest paid public employees, by state.
State by state, every state, the highest paid public employee is in higher
education. Not the governor, not a senator, not some life-saver...but
someone in higher education.
Yes, most of it is coaches, so I guess the time for me to talk about the
immense fraud of college athletics draws nigh...but the fact remains,
higher education is a system of plunder, devoid of integrity. All the
money poured into higher education has not gone to education, or to educators.
Instead, it’s gone to coaches and administrators…I suspect the aggregate
is to administrators, however.
And the picture tells the tale.
