The reason why I decided to become a pediatrician was because watching the video made me think that every kid deserves a chance to live and laugh, enjoy life, dream and have a future, but because of having no money those kids do not get to have all that. It is a gift for mothers to have kids and for mothers to watch their own flesh and blood dying slowing because she cannot afford going to the doctor it is sad. My family income is not that high. Both of my parents are high school drop outs, so they never made it to college. As we all know finding a job with a well-paid job can be dreadful without a high school diploma or a college diploma, but they manage through.
for their school, and see none of the money. Coaches sign six figure deals with shoe companies, like Nike, Reebok, Converse, and the players are the ones wearing the shoes and jerseys, the coaches have on whatever they want. Even though just recently the NCAA Committee allowed athletes to get a job; between schoolwork, and practices, they don’t have enough time to find a job. Most of the kids come from poor backgrounds, and don’t have enough money to do normal college things, like going out to eat, going on a date, or out to the movies. People believe that paying college athletes will ruin the tradition and innocence of the game.
Freshman English teacher, Ms. White, said ‘I need the extra five minutes to hydrate on coca-cola; my day just can’t go on without it.’” I couldn’t believe this. The matter had gotten so serious that our high school defaulted to shutting down. Can anyone in our school ever agree? It’s absolutely absurd when highly qualified and educated adults quarrel about trivial matters. Consequently, no teacher will earn their paycheck and no student will receive an education.
Most colleges require that their students be well-rounded by taking classes that have nothing to do with their career path. Campus Explorer explains that: “Distribution requirements were c... ... middle of paper ... ...they cannot find a job then the multiply years they spent of college will be wasted. Many of the high paying jobs that were once offered to these graduates have gone overseas leaving them to work the same minimal wage jobs as those who never bothered to go to college. While there are many people who believe that going to college is required for a better life, there are better and cheaper options available to those potential students. They could volunteer, become an intern, start their own business, go to trade school, or earn a certificate; there are lots possibilities.
Although these students participate and spend much of their time playing, they are no more special then the average student who attends the school.

(USAtoday.com) The program continually complains that providing players unsanctioned funds spoils fair competition between teams, because some players will only want to go to schools with a reputation for providing players extras such as money, cars etc. While there are several arguments for a pay for play program, the downside to these arguments outweigh any chance of a program ever being put into action.

I completely agree with this statement, I know college is crucial to my future, especially since my life goal is to be comfortable financial wise. I’ve seen my parents struggle with money, raising six kids the budget gets tight, and my dad never got a college degree so he had to prove to his employer that he could make it for their company. Hence forth he did climb the food chain as fast as everyone else, but he got there it just took a little more time and effort. I admire what my dad did for his family, how he stepped up and took control over his life. He didn’t have the option to go to college my mom and dad where getting ready to welcome their first kid into the world shortly after their high school graduation, so he had to go out find a job.
He further claims that schools aren 't even "out a nickel" when providing college athletes with their all expense paid vacation to to free education (Prewitt 1). What’s “Laughable, but it’s not funny” is this blatantly obnoxious response to the issue. Though there should be acknowledgement given to the amount of money coaches earn, that 's their profession. They train these young athletes to perform on the level they do and bring profit from it. Without coaches there would be no gain.
Last issue is, what about the kids who are actually paying the full tuition or partial tuition to go there, where is their money going? The whole thing is college athletes have been getting played since before I was born and it needs to stop soon. It’s just a loose loose situation for student athletes right now and that is no fun. Paying them would make their lives way easier and keep them out of trouble. Works Cited 1.
My plan of two years came crashing down last week, my dream of going to a six year medical program was denied. The criteria that I have and the criteria that the school emplaced did not match up. I had to many college credit hours for the fast track program which denied my access into my dream program. After receiving the heartbreaking email, I really began to think about my life. At first I was angry at myself for taking too many college classes, but then I began to see that it may have been the best thing to ever happen to me.
