Academia is broken

Academia is having a normal one.

There's an important paper waiting to be written about the precarity of the professorship. This is a disgrace, and a continuation of decades of precarity in education. We can do better.

And tuition continues to outpace inflation at a blistering pace "How Much is the tuition for 4 years at UCLA? For the students who were admitted in Fall 2021, the estimated tuition for 4 years is $52,966 for California residents and $176,376 for out-of state students."

Meanwhile, in sports:
"The new contract will pay Kelly an average of $4.7 million annually, a source told ESPN. Including incentives, Kelly could make $23 million ($5.75 million per year) over the course of the contract, sources told ESPN's Chris Low. His salary in 2021 was $5.6 million. UCLA has posted a 18-25 record in Kelly's four years." Jan 15, 2022
