The Shame of College Sports.
The World Maker Faire NY is the setting for an educational summit about how Makers can affect education again this year. Some are calling for significant changes to the educational system while others are looking for ways for improvement now.
"The Atlantic" web site published an expose on The Shame of College Sports and is well worth the time to read the article. Discussing the state of our education system would not be complete without an assessment of the role that sports and the sports authorities play. This article focuses on the college level but more and more we're seeing this come into play at the high school level too. Corporations like ESPN is focusing on sports at the high school level.
