Karon Gibson English 12 Should College Athletes Be Paid to Play? College athletes should not be paid to play sports because most athletes are attending college on full or partial scholarship and receive financial aid packages. This money is basically paying the students to study. Student athletes do bring greater part of the money into the school but most of the money is spent on them to. Paying athletes to play would create a huge gap in college sports because of the ability to pay more at the bigger schools.
Who gained from this was our K-12 reform programs (Department. of Education, 2012). If this was so, then why are most of our programs being shut down? It seems like we do not get the full story of what is going on with the program budget and were is all of the money going. They are always raising college tuition to help pay for different programs but, it seems that they are not focusing on the programs for the diverse students that are here in the United States.
People can take advantage of this free college, taxes can be raised, and it can take more time for employees, but there is a way you can fix all of the problems. To be able to have free community college, there should be restrictions against it. If a student doesn’t have a 3.0 grade point average, or if as student doesn’t have a 18 or higher on their ACT, if the attendance is below 95%, and a high school diploma. if there requirements aren’t met, then you shouldn’t allow free community college to that particular person. In conclusion, I believe free community college should be allowed.
Many people think that community college is only for those who can’t get into a university, but that is not true. Community college is a much more affordable way to start an education. In fact, the current price of a state four-year university is nearly triple that of a community college. Not only do students who attend universities have to pay for classes, they also have housing and food to worry about. Students who attend community college can simply live at home and not have to fear the extra expenses.
The wages average students earn from their low-income jobs mostly go towards rent, tuition and groceries which are expenses many college athletes on full-ride scholarships don’t really have to worry about. College athletes also graduate for the most part without high debt which most non-athlete students accumulate. The scholarships awarded to outstanding student athletes are valuable in many ways. Without them, many of those who are going to college for sports would not be able to go to college in the first place and would not be able to pursue their academic or athletic goals. These athletes are students who are being allowed an education through their participation in sports and they should feel privileged to do so.
I wonder what percentage of those students who didn’t get accepted withdrew the opportunity themselves because they couldn’t afford it once they got accepted. There can be so many reason why the school doesn’t accept 10K students a semester; by the way who wants to learn with another 1,000 students in the classroom. Beres doesn’t take the time to elaborate on different factors that come with college admission but instead attacks the College Board for no apparent reason. He has a valid claim that yes students’ needs to be given the chance, but lacks the supporting warrants he could have made. Instead of bashing the College Board about the common app he could have made a valid case by questioning the rising of college tuition which is a main factor that students aren’t
What good does Jill’s degree do then? The cartoon points out that sometimes degrees don’t even matter. If you attend college and pursue a major not currently in demand, then what good does the degree you earn do? Today, picking and choosing majors wisely is important. With the expense of college continuing to rise, most people cannot afford to pursue something they will not make money and benefit from later on.
I agree that many high school students are not ready to go on to college. Some are not ready for what college has to offer and are not ready to leave the security of their homes. All these are points that need emphasizing since so many people believe college is
The passage of the “Pick the Public’s Pocket No More” bill would lower college application rates, lower college graduation rates, and lower our country’s number of new college graduates for open positions in the work force. Without grants, many Americans would not be able to pursue college degrees because of the debt they would acquire financing their degree with loans alone. Federal grants allow young adults, who are the future of our country, to pursue a college degree without the full burden of college debts after graduation. (M) When considering whether or not to pursue a degree, many are persuaded to apply because they often receive grants to assist
Dr. Lydic argues that high school students are not experiencing a real college education. Despite what Dr. David Lydic believes, dual credit classes in high school provide a smooth transition for the student into the college world by giving students the opportunity to receive a minimum of 12 college
