Daily Digest: A Must-Read Edition
We’ve got just one story in today’s StateImpact Ohio daily digest, but it’s a humdinger. You should read it and wonder about things like how a young man can get all the way to college without knowing how to read.
The education of Dasmine Cathey – “With less than three months until graduation, [University of Memphis football player Dasmine Cathey] hasn’t shown up for classes in weeks. Last semester, during his final season of football, he failed three courses. That dropped his GPA below the 2.0 required to complete a degree, putting extra pressure on this semester’s grades. On paper, three classes are all he has left. But for a guy who could barely read three years ago, every class is a mountain.” Chronicle of Higher Education
