Reversing the Imbalance of Athletics and Academics.
McMillen, Tom
Elementary School Journal, v91 n5 p489-90 May 1991
Criticizes the emphasis of sports over academics at all levels of schooling, and the short length of the U.S. school year compared to that of other countries. Advocates minimum academic standards as a prerequisite for athletic participation, and students' choice of a college based on graduation rates rather than athletic achievement. (BC)
