An advocacy group wants the University of North Carolina system president to address the treatment of a former UNC-Chapel Hill learning specialist who questioned the literacy levels of some school athletes.
The University of North Carolina so far has failed to address concerns raised by an accountability advocacy group about athletics and academics, the head of the group said in a follow-up letter.
University of North Carolina officials appear to have violated state law when they criticized a reading specialist who concluded that some basketball and football players couldn't read at a third-grade level, the head of a government accountability advocacy group says.
In a letter to Thomas W. Ross on May 6, Government Accountability Project president Louis Clark wrote of concerns over "continued mistreatment, harassment and retaliation" against Mary Willingham, who left her job earlier this month.
Clark wrote to Chancellor Carol Folt in March, saying UNC might have violated state law in criticizing Willingham's research.
