UNC Chapel Hill Spot Checks Classes
The News & Observer of Raleigh reported (http://bit.ly/XIjGoz ) the reviews this week come after the school has been rocked by reports that some programs had classes where little instruction occurred.
A review led by former Gov. Jim Martin released in December found that more than 200 African and Afro-American Studies classes had little or no instruction dating back to the 1990s. The allegations included classes with no attendance, poorly supervised independent studies and improper grade changes. Athletes made up 45 percent of the enrollment in those classes.
The reviews by school administrators come before the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools' Commission on Colleges visits the campus this spring.
