Education Secretary Arne Duncan on NBCs Meet the Press Sunday said it was worth considering giving student athletes a free graduate school education in addition to the free ride they already get for undergrad.
Yeah, I think thats really important. People talk about helping them graduate from college. Yes, they should do that, but M.B.A., you know Masters, PhD, having some ability for the rest of your life to go back and get education. I think thats something worth considering. Some folks are talking about the medical expenses long term. I think thats a fair question on the table, Duncan said during a segment on whether student athletes should be paid to play.

Dear Lord...please make it stop!
Why is he using the ‘free’ word?
Because it’s code word for this: black athelete=free.
Most of them shouldn’t be in college anyway. They major in worthless degrees like urban studies or some other BS (not meaning bachelor of science) degree.
Sounds like a way for a school to have winning squads and experienced players stick around even longer. Thus more money from almuni. Thus bigger athletic programs. So that pro sports have more “mature” players when the time comes for them to go.
I think it is a travesty that they pretend athletes are actually students. i know there are many exceptional student athletes, but a very large percentage of them are not. Nothing makes my ears bleed more than listening to interviews of athletes.
How about we cut ALL taxpayer funding from ALL college sports programs and let the people who go to the games pay for the new shiny stadiums?
And do the same damn thing for professional sports teams as well.
common whore queeeeerrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
that the common people rather than caring about their freedom are only interested in bread and circuses (Latin - panem et circenses), Satire 10.81; i.e., food and entertainment
1st-2nd century AD - Decimus Iunius Iuvenalis: Known in English as Juvenal. He was a Roman poet credited with 16 known poems divided between 5 books; all are in the Roman genre of Satire, which, at its most basic in the time of the author, comprised a wide-ranging discussion of society and social mores.
Put this ahole’s name on the list of lefties to be reckoned with when we drag these socialist/communist/marxist aholes out of OUR White House.
What rock has that ass hat been living under for all these years? “Athletes” have been getting free education for years and adding “grad” school to the mix is just more of he same. Like the people who REALLY contribute to the GNP, let them get a job and pay for their own schooling.
