Outside experts find data set doesn’t support claims about reading levels of student-athletes

Friday, April 11, 2014

Outside experts found no evidence to support public claims about widespread low literacy levels of a group of first-year University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill student-athletes who had been screened for possible learning differences or learning disabilities between 2004 and 2012. Since January, those claims were widely reported in news media accounts and via social media. (UNC.edu)
