As a society, the things that we value most tells a lot about us. As a executive MBA student in a UC school, I started taking greater interest in learning about the UC system. I have come to greatly admire the professors who have taught me. I was looking-up state employee salaries and came across something that I had known before but did not care at that time. Saul Perlmutter, $194,991, in 2011, Nobel Prize in Physics.
Jeff Tedford, UC football coach, $2.884 million, in 2011.
The impact of professors such as Perlmutter would be far greater than that of Tedford.
