Unjust Compensation - ... These athletes should not be considered “employees” of their universities. Regular students don’t receive payment, so why should athletes. Both put in a substantial amount of work. Both strive for the common aspiration of graduating. Therefore, both should be treated equally in respect to being paid. Some might say that non-athletes have more time for a job, so it’s rational for athletes to be paid. This is most certainly false due to the fact that there are so many other activities for students to be involved in other than sports....   [tags: Athletics]

Creating Crisis: How Has the History of Fminist Sholarship Been Written? - Critiquing the crisis literature There are two opposing strands of argument within the crisis literature, both resulting in the failure of feminist scholarship in the contemporary moment. The first pertains to the idea that feminism has become de-politicized through being institutionalized in the university. This argument generally relies on the belief that theory has come to dominate contemporary feminist scholarship as the expense of ‘real politics’. I argue here that this is problematic because it retrospectively creates a boundary between the academic and the political by relying on an un-questioned ‘origin’ story....   [tags: Feminism]

Collegiate Sports - ... The NCAA has made an effort to regulate the recruitment and signings of foreign athletes to ensure that these students meet the educational standards in the United States. Weston explain that this issue is relevant because it prevents the illicit practice of recruiting foreigners that cannot meet or are not qualified of getting a college scholarship only because of their skills in playing a specific sport. Weston argue that focusing only on a student's athletic contributions would invalidate the supposed benefits of international recruitment, since schools that adopt such methods would only be focusing on their own gains and not on the student's welfare....   [tags: NCAA] 1911 words
