    Dan Kane will need to rewrite a lot more of his old news stories!

    Dear Carolina Community,

    We have just posted to the new Carolina Commitment website, http://carolinacommitment.unc.edu/, the executive summary and full reports from the independent analysis of a data set that was the basis for public claims about the reading ability of a group of student-athletes at Carolina who had been screened for possible learning differences or learning disabilities between 2004 and 2012.

    We took the claims seriously and committed publicly to analyzing the data set. Outside experts examined the data and found no evidence to support the literacy claims that have been widely reported in news media accounts and via social media.

    We fully accept that there are many important questions about the best way to balance athletics and academics both here at Carolina and across the nation. It is important for the media and the community to be able to ask tough questions and to have a respectful debate on these issues. Carolina is committed to participating actively in that conversation. We also understand that there are lingering questions about our programs, which is why we initiated an independent inquiry that is ongoing.

    I am still reading, but a hugh smack down of Willingham and a lot more.

    The experts who reviewed this confirmed my analysis that I posted here early on. (I am not an expert, but I did take the courses at UNC.)

    A lot more coming out today. Before its over Dan Kane will need to rewrite a lot more old news stories.
