I have two questions:
a) Where, in which quotes, does the writer express her opinion on the subject? (please give me a few examples maybe two or three quotes)
b) How does she organized her article? How does she introduce different parts, how much information she gives all the way from the begining to the end?
OK...first of all..its a really great article huh...very interesting but I can see why you are having trouble with those two points.
I don't want to do it for you but here is a suggestion. Try to find examples of corruption on the school system and the rules of basketball legues. Why was it so easy for Tolson to get through school with such bad grades? I think once you find those examples you will see what idea the writer is trying to paint for the reader.
b) It is obvious that this article is NOT like a typical intro, content conclusion. Does she talk about facts of does she paint pictures... (hint...grab a paint brush :) Think about what situations or pictures she paints...then talk about how she flows from one picture or situation to another.
If you are still having trouble I can help more. Try for yourself first though. :)
