North Carolina academic scandal grossly exaggerated


Mary Willingham, a learning specialist at UNC, researched the reading levels of Tar Heel football and basketball players and claimed to CNN that she found 60 percent of these athletes read between a fourth and eighth grade level, with another 8 to 10 percent reading at a third grade level or below. Now here’s the funny part: The woman alleging her students can’t read, well, she misread her own results. Or at least most of them. (Madison.com)
