Deion Sanders' sports charter school -- FACEPALM

[HT: RE]. Everybody will say that "Neon" Deion Sanders, aka Prime Time, running a sports charter school is ridiculous -- and it is -- but it is not really so far from many other public and private high schools that are basically athletic scholarship factories sponsored by shoe and apparel companies, where coaches and athletes, not teachers and administrators, rule the school.

This is what happens when two American education trends -- sports craziness and corporate sponsorship -- pull education down to its nadir. Enjoy.
