That said, a Bloomberg.com report this week is fascinating. In short, it details how, as it describes the issue, that "poor students subsidize unworthy college sports."
The author writes, "Worse yet, institutions with high proportions of poorer students carrying substantial education debt appeared to be charging the highest fees. While all students must pay the costs of maintaining athletic programs, few actually benefit from the services they subsidize. In this sense, the fees are comparable to a regressive tax -- and one that is more onerous for lower-income students than for the more affluent, who are able to attend schools where athletic fees are lower."
Even if you vehemently disagree, it's still worth a healthy discussion.
