(Counterclaim) Some feel Athletes are already paid through scholarships and should be going to college primarily for an education. (Bridge) However, the athletes are there to get an education as well as participate in the sport they love. (claim) College athletes should be paid to allow them to cover their expenses not covered by scholarships so they can complete their education.
Parents think that the more money they put into the child’s athletic expenses, they increase their chances of college scholarships and leading to a professional athletic career. An exceedingly amount of money can be spent on athletics because parents want to be able to provide every opportunity they can for their child to become better and to be successful. For example, at Jim-McLean Junior Golf Performance Academy, there are only twenty-four spots open each year for distinct private instruction. With limited entry comes at a cost of $39,875 to $58,875 annually. A noticeable agglomeration of money comes out of the family’s gross income to fund their child’s athletics.
College sports is one of the best-known entertainments around the world. But for the athletes, they are students first then athletes second. For college student-athletes, there are a variety of scholarships and grants to help pay for college or college debt. However, some critics say that student-athletes should be paid a salary like pro athletes would, with help from scholarships or grants. The authors of, College Athletes are being Educated, not Exploited, Val Ackerman and Larry Scott, argue that student-athletes are already paid by free education and other necessities.
The financial burdens that college leaves with the families and students needs to be addressed as student loans keep racking up over time. The cost of tuition for colleges has risen drastically over the years and has bounded students to only one or two college choices to choose from and at some points tearing away the opportunity to go to their dream college. However, one reason college has driven up in price is because the value it brings with it’s degrees, but it should not limit those who can not afford the worthy degree. College should be cheaper as it will ease financial burdens and broaden the choices of those wanting to attend
College Is Worth the Cost Parents always want their kids into college. Parents want their kids in college, because they did not and they want better for their children. Parents always want their kids to have a better life than they did, they want bigger and better things for them. So, college is worth the cost, because it's a parents dream for their kids to be in college, so they can be successful in life. College is worth the cost, because people that attend college usually end up making more money in the end.
Katie Hill Mrs. Gallos English 3 Honors 20 March, 2018 Should Athletes Be Paid? College athletes in the United States have been struggling with the fact that their job allows them to work just as many hours a week than a regular job does, but they do not receive any income from it. This conflict amongst athletes has been around since the 1980’s and continues to be of issue to most college athletes today. Supporters say that college athletes are the one’s out their making all the money for all the coaches and universities and it is unfair that the player’s do not receive any of the income; whereas, non-supporters say that college athletes get their stay at the colleges paid for along with many other privileges that normal college students do not receive, therefore, there is no unfairness.
If soldiers get more money for their services than people would join the army, not to fight for our country, but for the money. Soldiers would also get greedy with the money they get and lose concentration in the line of fire, and frankly soldiers don't need the extra cash. The government supplies lots of things after their retirement. The government supplies a very good retirement plan for those veterans that are retired. The things include: free medical care, free rent, and free food.
If students used the student loan money wisely they would not be in so much debt as well as not having to take so much out and paying so much back in the long run. For example, if you receive your loan and are spending it on luxuries items all the time it’s only going to hurt you because you will end up having to pay back more than what you should have had to in the first place. Many young college attenders face this situation because they have no past experiences with handling money more responsibly. Learning to budget their money more has helped graduates successfully. As many stress of the inflation of college we all learn to live with it.
I think the world needs to lower college prices because you need a college education for most good jobs, so poor students can still attend college, and the debt you have after college is enormous and takes forever to pay off. Please take all of these reasons into
The first example is, some Americans who attend college believe that since the price of going to college is so high, it “fails to provide students with good value for the money they and their families spend.” (Pew Research Center). If the student can learn to manage their time, they can get a job and attend college at the same time so that they are able to provide for their families. The second example is, most adults who graduated from college believe that they are “earning $20,000 more a year” which helps them be able to have stability in their financial situations. (Pew Research Center)
What should the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) do? Due to their hard work, time and risk of injuries, college athletes should be paid. Even if the NCAA or their own colleges can’t pay them too much, they deserve to be paid even just a little. It would be really helpful for some students to get some extra money.
In conclusion, college athletes should be paid because they bring in a ton of revenue for their schools while risking injury and yet are unable to afford the cost of living. The time that is put into the sport is the equivalent, if not more, than the time that is put into a full time job. Only thirty-three percent of students receive scholarships, most of them partial. Also, only one percent of all college athletes will play professional sports after their college tenure is served. The NCAA and Division One Colleges generate profits that do not trickle down to the athletes.
Have you ever thought about how those hardworking college athletes get through their years attending their University? Well, what if I told you that those athletes can barely get the essentials needed day by day because the scholarships they have received do not cover it and they don 't have any other money to buy it themselves. The debate whether or not College athletes should be paid for their time at the university they attend has been talked about a lot in these past years. Some people think that they should not be paid, but today I’m going to be telling you about why they should be paid. Athletes that are very well known by the fans of the university and or with lots of other people around the world like Lonzo Ball of UCLA, Dillon Brooks of Oregon, Markelle Fultz of Washington, etc.
There is currently nothing systematically in place to provide funds to the sports athletes who generate so much for the universities, and the revenue continues to climb for the NCAA, as they claim a scholarship is sufficient enough even the playing field amongst universities and their athletes and stress that the uproar will change college sports forever. The public has seen the exploitation of these athletes and are asking questions regarding the legitimacy of the structure and are now demanding these athletes be compensated for there hard work. So as the money skyrockets for the NCAA, the athletes are left needing amendments to the power structure that has held them down for so long; in order to change this Congress must step in make sure
Mike says”Students all over the world work hard at the sport that true love and don’t get a lot in return for it”. While college athletes may not exactly be employees, they are more than just students. Consider the life of a student-athlete, though. The average Division I football player dedicates over 43hours per week to his sport, meaning that he spends more than a typical American work-week training and playing football, in addition to his class work. Their work, which generates exorbitant amounts of money year in and year out, deserves Compensation.
