Who says education doesn't pay well? Apparently, you just have to find the right role and school.
According to an article in yesterday's New York Times,
Forty-two presidents of private colleges were paid more than a million dollars in 2011, up from 36 for the previous two years, according to the Chronicle of Higher Education's annual analysis of the colleges' latest available tax forms.
The three top earners were Robert J. Zimmer, University of Chicago ($3,358,723); Joseph E. Aoun, Northeastern University ($3,121,864); and Dennis J. Murry, Marist College ($2,688,148).
