Dumb jocks

According to the Chicago Sun-Times, Jesse Jackson is blaming NCAA schools for lousy graduation rates for student athletes, particularly black basketball players.
Jackson attributed African-American athletes' lower graduation rate to inadequate college preparation in many inner-city high schools. He also blamed coaches and schools for their single-minded emphasis on athletics over academics.
The story does not say whether Jackson places any responsibility for poor academic performance on the student athletes themselves or their parents.
