University of North Carolina apologizes for fake classes, promises real change.
In a story disappointing on multiple fronts, the University has apparently been giving athletes fake grades by signing them up for fake classes in the Afro-Am department, starting sometime in the ’90s.
The campus administration has initiated reforms.  But, writes Bloomberg’s Paul Barrett:

"No reforms will completely eliminate the anomalies created by the American decision to situate a multibillion-dollar sports business within institutions of higher learning."
