The rise in college president salaries

There’s been a lot of discussion about the generous raises given to leaders of Georgia’s public college and universities, but less talk about the raises given to the faculties of those schools. Today, a veteran Georgia college professor writes about the raises — or lack thereof — for faculty and the impact on morale. Readers share their views on the raises given to college presidents and whether they were deserved, especially given rising tuition. In a guest column, a former middle school teacher recalls the number of students whose parents made no provisions for their lunches and how schools had to take up the slack.
