Are US Universities serving society with sports as brand driver?
The New York Times last Sunday carried an article talking about how the real student athlete is being pushed out by the "professional" college footbal player. This is the only nation in which individuals can get admission and scholarships to Universities on the basis of athletic ability. This must have a harmful effect on academic achievement by demonstrating to others that athletic prowess is more valued than academic performance.
