Re: How Much 'Gas' Is In Caro's Car?
Bruce, to answer your question, I'm not sure. Here in Canada collegiate sports are no where near the money maker that they are in the U.S. but I imagine there is preferential treatment towards the star players but probably not on the same scale as what you are asking about.
This does not necessarily relate to what you are asking about but I do know that our universities are recruiting foreign students (primarily from India and south east Asia) because there are not enough native Canadians to fill certain roles (mainly science and math). Businesses are doing the same thing. I'm not 100% sure about this but like Canada the U.S. is also falling behind in those areas (math and science) and I suspect that due to the anti-immigration opinions in the U.S. that that trend will continue and the rest of the world will pass them by unless they change their views on immigration and education. It is a little sad that we are getting stupider and the solution is to bring in smart people from other countries rather than trying to improve the education of the people that are already hear but that appears to be the way things are going.
