Letter to the Editor: The state is underfunding public colleges

Last month I had another Letter to the Editor published.  This particular letter was in response to this Our View at the Salem News.  

"We love to talk about running higher education “like a business.” But when it comes to paying leadership a competitive market price, we balk and cry “that’s egregious!”

I call foul on The Salem News for whining about public higher education leadership pay while contrasting it with cost students are paying. When have they have ever complained about the product’s cost in relation to the pay of the CEO? But these are public funds, you say, and it’s not fair to the citizens? OK, I’ll take up that argument."

For the rest of the letter, click on through to the Salem News.
