Let the U run itself. They all do.
It does show the hypocracy of NCAA entry standards, cause, if you can get in, you can stay in.
But, it goes on everywhere.
mrs. ziik teached 5th grade. Parents demand grade changes every week "She's never get in college with a 5th grade book report incomplete." blah, blah, blah. mrs. ziik does not cave to the parents. But if the parents go to the pricipal, the parents get whatever remedy they ask for .
(No wonder they wrote on the girls bathroom walls: "Mrs, Ziik is a whore, a slut, and a prostitute." The principal wanted punishment for that one. Mrs. Ziik said no, she knew who did it, and those girls deserved credit for improving their spelling. I told her she was right, but, I'd pay if she wanted it.)
I used to teach at a commercial paralegal school. It was easy money at a time when client matters were very slow. The students were guaranteed certificates if they showed up. But, they slept in class, did not study, did not even pay attention to the cheat sheets I gave them to highlight the basics of the courses. They argued about grades incessantly.
The final straw was when I gave a student a 20 on a test. She got one correct answer, but had not even put her name on her test paper. The admin. told me I needed to bump her to a Cplus. I explained that, if they could find a test paper with her name on it, I'd be happy to do that, but it would be unfair to the poor dope who got the 20 and had not signed her name. They saw no humor in my approach.
The next course, they were geniuses. All A's. One B for the guy who wore shades and slept all day. The admin told me they thought it was unfair to single him out like that. I explained that I thought it was unfair to sleep in my class, when every class and every teacher was a bore.
School is crazy. You wnat to learn, you can learn at Chipola CC, Indian Wells, or Ouachita Baptist. You don't, and Harvard, MIT and Yale just will be wasted years.
I enjoyed GW, learned a whole lot about the USA and american culture, from classes and peers, and even from football players.
I think the fotball powers are shortchanging their players by making school a joke. But, so what. Football is a tragic, sick joke itself. DOn't know what will replace it. But something better might.
Maybe those stadiums can be converted to urban farms or low income housing. Heck, make it free housing, for the disabled, and keep all the work-out equipment in place. And, give the inmates some decent unis, including travel blazers, slack, and skirts
