Report: College athletes behind in reading

Brooke Baldwin talks to panel guests about a report concluding that some college athletes are reading at 4th-8th grade levels. Some collegiate programs are criticized for favoring money over educating their student athletes.

    I am not at all shocked to read such news. Because the focus of fame has put education and sometimes common sense on the back burner. Creating stability more so in the world than in the confinements of self, which is where it should start.

    CNN should examine what goes on in the nation's university and college classrooms where sports are the priority. Sadly, most of these athletes won't participate in sports for a living. Learning to read well will eventually become a priority. Professors are passing out A's to athletes for staring at the walls and sometimes doing so at home. It's become the politically correct thing to do in order to protect teaching careers. The only proud exception I've witnessed is K-State. That's because Coach Bill Snyder understands the need for an education.

    @Douglas Rodriguez

    do you mean the same Bill Snyder who has relied on JUCO players for 30 + years?

    The same KState with an APR of 948? (925 is equivalent to a 50% graduation rate)

    Colleges have become farm teams for professional sports. It seems like all emphasis is placed on the sport with a little requirements on academics. It's too bad that more smart less fortunate students can't get a full scholarships like the athletes do.
