Rachel Shack Speaks Out
Rachel Shack, a Trinity College junior and women's lacrosse player, penned a remarkable essay (Duke Chronicle) that offers more sound judgment on the role of athletics at Duke than the post-March writings of the combined membership of the arts and sciences faculty.
I read her article. Very, very well written and reflects and emotional and educational maturity far beyond anything the faculty and administration has shown. It's becoming obvious that Duke gets exceptionaly bright, well motivated kids (including athletes) and the faculty is beneath them.
A student admitted on her own acdaemic merit on a varsity athletic team and going to two Final Fours? Impossible! Doesn't happen.
