Default Re: CNN analysis: Some college athletes play like adults, read like 5th-graders

As a HS special education teacher, I know that many high school graduates without special needs can not read above an eight grade level. It is not an athlete problem but an entire generation's problem. Also too often these athletes have special needs and are not being treated when in lower education levels.

Don't get me wrong, too many athletes are slipping through the cracks and we need to focus on helping them, not just using them. I have a bigger problem with the universities not putting these players on track to actually graduate but instead just put them in classes to keep their GPA high enough to play. That is the problem with college athletics.
