you're in education, just like me (also 33 years old)...we won't ever get a bonus -- our job is bonus enough, eh? <br><br>----<br>"even if we get bin Laden or Zawahiri now, it is 2 years 2 late.

i was listening to some noam chomsky on my iPod today (i have one of his books on CD). anyway, he was responding to a question and alluded to his salary (he just said, "$80,000 - $100,000") and said that he'd do his job as a university professor for much less than that because of the freedom he has...rather than go into detail now, i think i'll listen again and start a new thread on it because he tied it into work in general and the perceptions that the average american worker has and how we've been conditioned to work for "the man" and be worker bees -- my terms; not his. anyway, he has an interesting perspective to say the least.<br><br>----<br>"even if we get bin Laden or Zawahiri now, it is 2 years 2 late.

I agree. I can't think of another profession where you decide what it is that you're going to do as easily as in education. That's true not just in the classroom (I get to invent courses all the time--it's neat) but also in research. If I get interested in something, I go for it, read about it, work it up, write it down, send it off (without overworking those adverbs ).<br><br>edit: I don't believe that Chomsky's salary is that low, though. A full professor at MIT who has been there for a long long time surely makes more thatn 80-100 thousand.<br><br><P ID="edit"><FONT SIZE=-1><EM>Edited by yoyo52 on 05/17/04 08:19 AM (server time).</EM></FONT></P>

that's what i think as well. we have a few full professors making that range at my university (that nobody has heard of), though i think our top guy is at $101,000 and he only jumped that high because he was the Dean for a while about 10 years ago. i found an article that mentioned that, "Harvard and MIT pay their professors the most of any schools in Massachusetts, with full professors reaping the biggest benefits at average salaries of $116,800 and $104,200, respectively." so, i would guess that chomsky is at least average at MIT. his department is probably not a high value department. for example, i have a buddy here who started 3 years after me in our business school (he came straight from his ph.d. program at the university of iowa). he started at over $60,000 and was the lowest paid professor in his department (and, he's an assistant professor -- where we all tend to start). the school of education starts in the 40s and we have associate professors making in the 50s. Al, you and i messed up...we should have been business or law professors -- or, we should be publishing books outside of our fields of study - like noam. <br><br>----<br>"even if we get bin Laden or Zawahiri now, it is 2 years 2 late.
