Took an art class once. Professor came in wearing dirty rags and a huge beard. Looked like a hobo, but he was really chill and made some fantastic art. Relevant to me!

I present to you the professor or hobo quiz.

6/10... that was pretty tough

******** . There's a university in my city and all the professors are ******* loaded. Even the art professor makes a small fortune.

Looks more like a Doctor to me.

Pretty **** professor then. Some of the ones at my college make six figures just from teaching, with even more from research.

what college do you go to?
User avatar #3 - brettyoke (05/16/2014) [-]
Professors (providing he means for a college) make an average of around $60k a year...
User avatar #11 to #3 - aherorising (05/16/2014) [-]
that's.... still not much considering the stuff they do and the knowledge they have

my 5K a semester tuition definitely isnt going to the teachers... I wonder how much the Execs. at the Uni make? probably high six figs, if not 7
User avatar #16 to #15 - aherorising (05/16/2014) [-]
executives?... why'd you need those at a uni?
User avatar #18 to #16 - thebaseballexpert (05/16/2014) [-]
the ones who run the school as a whole? the deans, office admins. owners (If it's private), and I'm sure a lot more other people I'm sure I'm missing.
User avatar #19 to #18 - aherorising (05/16/2014) [-]
figures. But is it really like that for all of them? I mean that's more the wage for journalists, high school teachers, HR and administration right? not of high-ranking electrig/software/hardware engineers, or am I wrong?

I just looked it up. Apparently the median salary for a University Dean is ~200k, while something like a District CEO makes almost 300k. Which is a hell of a lot more considering that university teachers are apparently making around 60k.
User avatar #21 to #20 - aherorising (05/16/2014) [-]
pretty much yeah.
2 questions though:
what exactly is a district CEO and what does he do?
and is the salary for professors really uniform? because I can easily imagine differences in skill and salary between women's studies and ICT
User avatar #22 to #21 - thebaseballexpert (05/16/2014) [-]
Holy hell man. Google is your friend. I'm a baseball expert, not a college expert

I WOULD ASSUME a district CEO oversees all the campuses in a schools system (like Cal State LA, Cal State Fullerton, Cal State SD, Cal State Longbeach, etc.), whereas the Dean oversees the single school.

Of course proffessors salaries arent uniform. I ASSUME 60k is the median. pay is allways based on experience, education level, time served, etc.

"professor'' is a non-protected title. Everyone can call himself 'professor'.     
Other than for example doctor. If you call yourself doctor while you aren't a graduated one, the government will eh....politely ask you to not do so.

I work part time at a grocery store, and I've got piercings, which have gotten me some dirty looks before. Same thing basically happened to me, overheard a mother telling her kid to stay in school otherwise they'd end up like me. I didn't waste my time explaining that I'm working here to pay for my degree.

In my country we have a strike of professors right now and it's exactly like this, the ******* president telling them to go teaching and they don't have money even for the bus.

Pay them first
User avatar #8 - incest (05/16/2014) [-]
Kind of relevant, but where I live, teachers are threatening to go on strike again for the third or fourth time in the past five years (even though they won the other strikes.)

They complain that they are still not getting paid enough money.

I personally don't think they should get more money. Yeah, there are good teachers, but I can count on one hand the amount of good teachers I've had.

I say that if teachers want higher wages, have their wages and raises based on end of the year reviews from students and the students grades. They do the same for University professors, why not high school teachers too?

My family and I have dealt with so much ******** from the school board. Not from me so much, but my brother has aspergers so we really do see how much teachers' "care."

merit pay is single handedly the worst way to pay teachers. If i didn't lose all the studies and articles on the subject I've collected over my years in debate, I'd be more than happy to share, but....

Is this seriously implying that professors dont make much money?
