Re: Open Letter to Pres. Wright

Reader Stan Horowitz writes this in response:

That�s a really great letter.

It confirms what I�ve been saying. The cause of the budget crisis is not that the College has less money, it�s that they�ve chosen to spend it elsewhere.

Prof. Alverson has shown that increased spending on non-instructional salaries has sapped the ability to spend on anything else. Now we need to find out just what activities the increased non-instructional salaries support. Keep peeling back the onion and we�ll know what the administration�s priorities really are.

Are you as surprised as I am that instructional salaries are less than half of non-instructional salaries, down from 57% in only three years?
