The Chronicle of Higher Education reports this morning that, according to a new study, there are dramatic disparities in the salaries of community college presidents associated with race, sex, and gender.
Bucking trends in the pay of top officials in most other professions, women, on average, earned higher base salaries than did men at the helms of two-year institutions, the study found, and Hispanic and black presidents earned more than their white counterparts….
Hispanic presidents reported the highest median base salary of any ethnic group, at $201,553, the study found. Black presidents had a median base salary of $190,000, and white presidents had a median base salary of $167,200.
I wonder if the Departments of Justice or Education are investigating this apparent discrimination.
Actually, I don’t.
