Money in Education

Teaching is not a profession associated with high salaries, either here or in the UK, but there is a way to earn a large wage in educational the US. College sports in the US is big business. College American Football teams play in massive stadiums, some of which have cost several hundred million dollars in renovations over recent years. The University of Nebraska play in an stadium with a capacity of over 90,000; which is generally filled for every game. To put this into perspective, only two cities in the state have a population greater than that of the Stadium. Lincoln, in which the stadium sits, has a total population of just three times the capacity.

The money in college football was emphasized last week when the coach of the San Francisco 49ers left his $5m a year job to coach the University of Michigan. He is not losing out financially by this move from be wealthiest sports league on Earth , as his new salary from the college is $8m a year.
