    Speaking as someone who has spent her entire career teaching college classes, I can tell you that one of the biggest factors driving the increase in tuition prices is obscene salaries for coaches and a rapidly increasing number of administrators.  I'm kind of at the bottom of the totem pole, since I have only an MA, but I have over 20 years experience, teach five classes a semester, have other duties as well,  and just got a raise up to a whopping $35,000 a year.  Meanwhile, administrators, who best I can tell work about half as hard as I do make at least twice that, and the big name coaches count their salaries in the six figure range.
