The UM money pit [Letter]

July 02, 2014

Your article on the University System of Maryland's highest earners apparently was not intended to address the really big issue ("UM coaches, UMB doctors among state's highest earners," June 28).

The real issue is the self-sustaining, government-run education system whose creation we have allowed that leaves students saddled with tens of thousands of dollars in debt designed to help pay the exorbitant salaries of too many university presidents, professors and bureaucrats.

Furthermore, why do we even need so many universities in Maryland, each with its own president and staff, and all trying to outdo each other with programs, stadiums, field houses, etc., that only perpetuate the problem?
