Universities need to pay their senior staff well | Education | The Guardian.

Here we go again! It must be the season for having a go at vice-chancellors’ pay. This follows a predictable annual cycle, which usually starts in the late summer with the “isn’t it dreadful how standards in the GCSE have fallen”, followed by “isn’t it dreadful that so many people are passing their A-levels”. Unfortunately, the frequency of the discussion adds nothing to its sophistication.

Whether we like it or not, vice-chancellors are chief executives of large and complex organisations. There are well established and robust methodologies for comparing the total remuneration package of executives in the private and public sectors and, in general, those in the public sector are significantly lower.
