Here's a disturbing story about how good teaching and learning is being killed by college football.
Calstate was put on NCAA probation for practicing good teaching and learning! Here's the deal, according to a story by New York Times columnist Joe Nocero. "Part of being a student at Caltech means “shopping” for courses for the first three weeks of each trimester. Students are allowed to sample classes before they have to register for them."
This is good educational practice, right? Yes, Yes it is. But it violates NCAA rules for student-athletes, I mean athlete-students. So Calstate is being punished. Calstate is one of the nation's top engineering schools. Football over STEM college graduates, there's a priority.
