UT executive pay jumped as tuition climbed

Check out this AP analysis in today's Houston Chronicle showing how the pay of UT executives increased 30 percent or more between 2004 and 2008. During the same time frame, tuition and fees at UT climbed 57 percent, thanks largely to the Texas Legislature's 2003 decision to deregulate tuition.

I have two degrees from UT, but when they decided it was more important to be a university for the elite than a university for the people of Texas, I decided to stop donating to them.
