Special Admissions Treatment for Athletes Widespread at Big-Time-Sports Colleges.
Lederman, Douglas
Chronicle of Higher Education, v37 n33 pA1,31-33 May 1 1991
A national survey indicates nearly 18 percent of all athletes admitted to big-time college and university sports programs in 1989 were given special admissions treatment. There is widespread disagreement about policies and standards for admitting athletes. Issues include appropriate college preparation, selective admission in the disciplines, and achievement after admission. (MSE)
