Faculty pay not causing increased costs

You have to like data like this being propagated out there!! Although every time we look at our paycheck, we know we are not seeing our wages go up like the cost of a college education, it is nice to see someone gathering some statistics.

Administrators like to take their cuts from teaching costs by enlarging class sizes, etc, just because they can, not because it gets at the underlying problems of the budget in higher education.

Hopefully, you can read the article from the Chronicle of Higher Education:
