Yipes! What If the NFL Was Run Like the Schools?

Today's must-read has to be this clever (and frighteningly illuminating) comparison between America's broken education system and the National Football League. And it's a piece very well written by a fellow with remarkable experience in both arenas. He is, for instance, a visionary and extremely successful businessman who understands the desperate need for educational excellence. And, oh yes, he's an All-American collegiate football player whose stellar career in the NFL put him in the Hall of Fame. So when Fran Tarkenton speaks, he deserves a listen.

And this piece is as good as it gets. Read it. Ponder it. And then pass it around.
