student-athletes

Chad Orzel, at Uncertain Principles, has a nice post on the success of student athletes compared to the general student population. For those of you that will be bothered by Orzel’s snarky comments on the NCAA website at the beginning of the post, or if just don’t feel like you have the time to read it, here’s the very unsurprising and sadly correct moral of the story:

“But it’s easy to write self-righteous editorials blasting high-profile sports programs for their academic failings, while fixing the class and race problems of American education will cost real money, and require actual work. And nobody wants that.”

Thanks to Scotty for the heads up on this one.
