    That earning $25K a year would be living high off the hog, not just above the poverty level.

    And while were at it ...

    A college education was the road to success, not 20 years of debt.

    I just read an article about my Alma Mater "suffering" from dwindling enrollment. All they talked about was curriculum and recruitment, but nothing about lowering tuition so undergraduates didn't end up $50k in the hole when they graduate. :(

    Those college professors have to eat y'know :rolleyes:
    Head of Bristol Uni was paid £468,000 per year, PLUS rent free house and complimentary car. It took a public outcry for things to change. Yet students graduate with a huge debt, as Universities levy the maximum allowed tuition fees.

    It's tough when you only make $138k* and have to work 6 hours a day for 9 months out of the year. I don't know how they do it.

    *Average salary for a Penn State Univ. Professor.
