One of the biggest issues with NCAA sports is should college athletes be able to unionize and play. According to their website, The NCAA is an organization that represents over 1,100 colleges and universities from the Division 1, Division 2, and Division 3 Level (ncaa.org). In addition, The NCAA doled out more than $2.7 billion in athletic scholarships along with other resources, student-athletes can utilize (ncaa.org). Although the NCAA generates mass revenue, only the top programs are usually profitable while most schools operate at the institution cost (Mitchell & Edelman, 2013). I believe college athletes should not be unionized or paid to play college sports. If colleges were to be unionized and paying student-athletes, the money to pay
Title IX has had a huge effect on public school education. In fact the impact is so great I could not list them all. For the sake of time I will list the biggest one and that is the impact on women’s athletics. In 1971 only 15% of the athletes in college were women. In 2012 that number is 43%. Title nine requires athletic programs to be equivalent to enrollment. The number of sports programs for each sex should reflect the ratio of students enrolled in the school. With more women attending college the need for more sports programs has grown dramatically. I don’t want to get in a political discussion about schools who have cut men’s programs so I will only speak on schools who have added women’s programs. This opportunity has not only improved

Title IX is a law that stops sex discrimination and helps break down the barriers that women once had difficulty getting passed. This essay will be showing how Title IX is fair to men and women. This essay will show how Title IX is fair and show the claims on Title IX. Some aspects of Title IX will tell you which side you will decide on.
The programs created by Lyndon B. Johnson’s Great Society aimed to improve the country by eradicating poverty and social injustice. The education system contributes to systematic oppression. A good education is crucial to gaining success in the United States; education is also very expensive and not always accessible to those who cannot afford it. With Ⅳ titles, the Higher Education Act (HEA) was established in September of 1965 as the first solution to the issue of accessibility. It provided the federal scholarships and started programs like Upward Bound and Talent Search to find needy students and give them the scholarships they required in order to attend a college or university. Before the HEA, little attention was given to making higher
The policies of Title IX is a problem that has been an issue pushed under the rug for years and it needs to be revised. Men’s teams shouldn’t have to be cut, all it takes is changes within the universities and a public voice. Spreading the word about Title IX and the negative effects will open the eyes of politicians, courts, and the universities. If everyone started a trend on social media and put pressure on the colleges, they could make a plan to reverse the negative effects. Challenging and changing the impurities of Title IX won’t make genders’ in athletics unequal, but balanced and ultimately just.
Title IX was signed into law in 1972 and it required equality for male and female students in each educational program and activity that received federal funding. This means that universities had to offer sports that women could participate in. The reasons Title IX came into being was a demand from Women’s Rights organizations for equal opportunities.
The Title IX is a law that requires all education programs, mainly sports, that are federally funded to have gender equality. In 1906 the NCAA (National Collegiate Athletic Association) was created for formatting and enforcing rules in men's football, but it soon became the ruling body for college athletics. The NCAA was great for men but not so much for women, women did not get athletic scholarships and there were no championships for women's teams. In 1972 the Title IX was signed by President Nixon and passed, allowing more women to join sports teams and get college degrees. Currently there are more than 2.6 million girl athletes in high school and more than 150,000 in college.

“I wonder how many times a Tom Brady is asked about how handsome he is, or J.J. Watt... it’s something that us female athletes have to deal with all the time,”(Hatch.) quoted by the famous Delle Donne of the WNBA (Women’s National Basketball Association) Chicago Sky. Delle Donne is one of the many female athletes, who endure sexism in sports today. Today in society, people still struggle with the idea of females being involved in sports. Sexism is “ the unfair treatment of people because of their sex; especially : unfair treatment of women” (Sexism.) Many would agree that watching an all female athletic game, is not as entertaining as an all male athletic game. Men believe women are incompetent when it comes to sports talk. During a sports conversation, women tend to get ignored
In the article titled Face-off on the playing field By, Judith B. Stamper explains girls have their own story of support or discrimination, success also the debate of girls be allowed to compete on boys’ sports team. First, the writer Title IX explains female athletes are been treated second-class for long enough and should pass of inequalities and biases of girls. The writer also clarifies that girls doing sports make them healthier, physically, and emotionally. Other girls that don’t play sports are less likely to use of drugs. In addition, she notes a former Stanford University basketball player Mariah says, strength and independence of things girls learn from sports, the opportunities that are changing women. Also, changing the way men
Before Title IX was passed, the classes that were offered in high school for girls to take were ones like cooking and sewing, while boys could take woodworking and metalworking classes. Schools were allowed to deny these girls the training in these fields that were considered inappropriate. Therefore, women trained primarily for low-wage jobs, such as health aides, cosmetologists and housewives.
While Marbella and Wells suggest that Title IX is negatively impacting men’s sports, Goodale proves that Title IX cannot be held responsible for cuts to men’s sports in recent years. Title IX isn’t to be held responsible for decreases in men’s sports as justified by Gloria Goodale in the article “40 Years Later, Title IX Is Still Fighting Perception it Hurt Men’s Sports”. Contrary to popular belief, collegiate sport participation is actually increasing. The NCAA provided evidence proving that “Just between 2002 and 2011, the NCAA says, the number of men in college sports increased by 38,482 between 2002 and 2011. During that same period, the number of females went up by less, some 32,662” (qtd. in Goodale). All of this occurred while Title IX was in place, proving that Title IX, despite it’s increasingly unflattering reputation, is having a positive impact on collegiate sports, even if it
Patsy Mink: Leader, visionary, feminist. Patsy Mink was one of the frontrunners in the fight for women's equality and did not rest until her goals were achieved. Mrs. Mink contributed greatly to the common good, equality of opportunity, and to individual rights for all. She fought until her death to level the playing field for men and women.
Based on the numerous examples exhibited each and every day on the field and off the field in America, it is clear Title IX has fallen short of its purpose. The Act states, in part, “No person shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation
“ No person… shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination” ( Wong). Within sports, many females get discriminated due to being “weak” or less interesting to watch. Some get less pay for having not equal amounts of participation as men do. The main issues are whether or not females and men should receive equal pay grade and whether if one does not participate as much which should they get the same attention. Equal pay grade may determine whether females play just as much as men and participate. Sports should not be based on whether you are more interested in girls or guys sports; it should be based on which sport brings in more revenue and has the most participation
Equality. It seems to be at the forefront of many people’s minds today. But what does it mean to be equal? A simple question, really, however, the answer always seems to elude the strongest advocates of equality. For example, in 1972, Nixon signed into law Title IX, a great victory for all people, a truly equal bill in theory and for the most part, in practice. The trouble is, the law has become overreaching, looking for trouble in places where there isn’t any. The bill has achieved what it has set out to accomplish and now has taken on a form where it is discriminatory in nature and is no longer needed on the scale it exists to today.
