Boston Globe: Boost students, not just sports.
“The Boston Scholar Athlete Program, which will boost sports budgets in the city’s schools by 61%, must make sure student-athletes also flex their academic abilities, urges an editoral in The Boston Globe. Excitement over rehabilitating sports programs and hero worship of good athletes can’t be allowed to overshadow the need for academic achievement, the editorial board writes.”
