I have taught at six universities at the assistant professor level, in English and Theatre departments, both mediocre and top-ranked universities, and invariably, my salary equaled about 3 student tuitions. Depressing in a class of at least twenty students, but understandable in terms of administration salaries, capital expense, etc. This is one reason why online and other education alternates are thriving. A good CEO in the free-enterprise system could not improve on these ratios. Curious why yearbook advisors want this info. Salaries and fringe benefits are the easily measurable part of the rewards of teaching. The unmeasurable part is the door-opening part. There are grown human being out there who heard “The unexamined life is not worth living” first from my lips.
