Schools are created for this reason. However, sports take up more funding, which makes the funding for academics go down. “Sports are just extra-curricular activities. They are logical to slash down for important subjects like literacy.” (Frank Deford, NPR). Other schools across the world that have one of the best scores on tests, like Japan and Korea, they don’t have sports in schools.
As we all know, college can be very expensive. With the scholarships and grants, college student-athletes can go to school for free and get their day-to-day needs such as food, housing, clothes, etc. Ackerman and Scotts, purpose is to show that college is a learning experience and with the help of college sports, the student-athletes will have a chance to grow and be successful in life rather than being exploited. However, critics believe that college student-athletes should be paid salary, like professional athletes, because they want people to see the “athletes are the rule, not the expectation” (par 11). They want the audience to think that it’s a rule for student-athletes to go play pro after two years, will no expectation.
Not necessarily for college applications, but moreover on the experience that I will gain by being a member. In fact, the opportunities such as giving back to the school and the community will surely hold more value than it would in my college applications. In addition, if I do get accepted, I will surely not be the first to write that I was an NHS member, so would it really make much of a difference? I believe I will be a great contribution for the National Honor Society. Growing up in an unfortunate family, I have learned to take my education seriously and apply for organizations to serve as an inspiration.
Student-Athletes Should be Paid Student-athletes are the main source of income for their respective colleges. They are also instrumental in the recruiting aspect of colleges. In order to maintain their good reputation and keep being attractive to incoming students, colleges depend on their athletes to be the “cream of the crop” at their level of competition. Then why are college students not being paid for the services they provide. Many will say that student-athletes are not to be paid as they are receiving a free education through scholarships.
This would not be an intelligent choice on their part. Because of the positive influence that high school sports has on student’s social relationships, education, and character, San Diego should reconsider their stance on eliminating high school sports. One way that high school sports benefit students are through their social benefits. For instance, according to a study
A college education has become a necessity in today’s society. What if college was miraculously free. It would be like going to your public high school without paying that horrendous tuition fee. A lot of people say that free college is a dumb idea because it could potentially flood the market, and Others think it’s a great idea though, because more people would end up going to college because they don’t have to worry about financially paying for it. If there was a such thing about free college lower income students might reach graduation.
All we need is people that believe that getting a better education is better for you in long run that’s the only way education is key. If we had more big companies putting more money into the schools people can start lowering the tuition this is starting plan if we start having way more funding into the schools though the government we would have a lot more kids trying to get into college.I read a survey on online in seen that some kids in college had a debate on this topic one kid that free college means high school all over again meaning many people would take college for granted if it was free because the way they act in high school saying they won 't be able to go to college because they act bad in high school. the student said college is for people who really do care about their
Attending either single-sex or co-ed schools have always been a problem; whether it is the amount for the school or the debate on if the students should be around other genders. Parents say that by going to single-sex schools could help the student focus heavily on academics,however what the parents don’t realize is that by going to single-sex school doesn’t help prepare the student for the world. But by going to a co-ed school it gives the student the opportunity to get used to being around and interacting with other genders. Although single-sex education helps students focus heavily on academics, students should be aloud to mix with other genders because this helps with the student’s social skills, it's too expensive to get single-sex education and the student will struggle to adjust being around other genders when going to college or getting a job. Students should be aloud to mix with other genders because this helps with the
Equal consideration in Education Everyone wants to go in college but not everybody can afford for their university finances. Students are finding ways to have a proper education due to their financial problem. Opportunity comes in athletical scholarship when you are physically fitted in the school. Adding that to be a student athlete is a great privilege for free education with their special treatment in academics. Is this because they have more than enough consideration in school than to other regular student?
A game without support is not a real game and is not as much fun as if there were supporter. Of course, fans are not everything, and an athlete should be able to play and fight hard even though there is not any support since it is their job to play for the college and in the best-case win. Every athlete receives a scholarship for playing for the school and for which all students are thankful. However, investing in facilities would bring more support to each game and therefore the atmosphere would increase. That is what athletes work for, a though game with people who support them no matter what and where they have to push through this situation to win this game.
These coaches will receive bonuses for getting to the playoffs, winning championships, or breaking school records, but what do the athletes receive as a bonus? Nothing. Secondly, athletic programs. Some universities bring in hundreds of thousands or millions of dollars to their athletic programs each year. Through donations, ticket sales, media rights, advertising, and anything else with a price tag, these athletes are symbols for their school and their program.
I personlly think NCAA athletes should get paid, because they put a lot on the line to play college ball. Yea they might get paid in free education but you got to look on the other side how are they to support they self for personal needs like tooth paste, cloths, shoes, soap, and many more. What about the ones that go out of there home state and play. Their family many miles away so they can’t get to much support from them. Other sports fans do not want to see athletes paid because they say “ it will destroy their notion of amateur athletics.” They stick with the belief that a “free education” is compensation enough for what the athletes provide for the school.
Pay to play is necessary because it would allow schools to stay in restraints of their budgets with ease, students who cannot afford the payment are available to an exemption from it, and playing time would not be affected. If high schools implemented a pay to play system for sports their budget would be much more manageable. Schools have been given much smaller budgets for sports compared to years in the past. Haverhill High School in Massachusetts had previously received $550,000 compared to the $300,000 they receive now (Cerling & Herman, "2007"). With the absence of such a large amount of money Haverhill had no choice but to initiate a pay to play system.
Some athletes plan to go back and attend school again so they could earn a degree in their dream job. Speaking of jobs, many plan to work once they retire, hence, giving them enough money to support them and their family if they have one. So are you saying these athletes who are clearly prepared for the future don’t deserve the responsibility of their own money? It’s not like they’re children who work at lemonade stands to raise enough money to quickly spend it all on overpriced games. Come on, give the athletes a chance to show they know how to spend money without spending it all in one shot.
