Community colleges in California are struggling to fill top positions that pay about $200,000 a year. That sounds like crazy talk in this economy, but the situation may be a sign of things to come nationwide, as  leaders retire and applicant pools shrink, the Chronicle of Higher Education reports.

Community college positions tend not to pay as much as comparable four-year college positions, and California contenders have to weigh compensation packages against higher living expenses, "complex laws, strong unions," and a rocky state budget, according to the Chronicle.
