UNC: Athlete literacy research findings flawed

North Carolina's top academic officer said Friday that reading specialist Mary Willingham's findings on athlete literacy levels are flawed, though she stands firm that her research is ''100 percent correct.'' In a meeting of the school's faculty council, provost James W. Dean Jr. said there is ''absolutely no basis whatsoever in the dataset to make any claim about the literacy of our student-athletes.''
