Many people in the school look up to them, therefore they should get good grades in school. Athletes represent their school. But this is what a student athlete is. If you are able to manage both, it proves why you should go to a certain college. Not everyone can get accepted into a great college, this is why when they picked what athlete they want, you always want to have a better chance.
There are a few negative factors, but sports are important to many students, like me, and want to play for their own enjoyment and there are positive outcome ou... ... middle of paper ... ...se due to the districts rules. Covering all, we should revise the rules of Fort Bend ISD and change it. Having a sport in a school is a privilegeto one because some don’t due to the lack of money.It’s important for many students: it can help students in future possibilities such as athletics and their character. Knowing sports can change a person physically and mentally by making them smart, respectful, and healthier. Being in an after school activity is rewarding experience to all the students who are going to dedicated and focused on school and in the activity.
Also sports can increase your self-esteem because you get to win and lose as a team, in which you get to understand the good and the bad along with the rest of the team (Edmundson). Money may be an issue but, it is worth it for the students because they will want to come to school and show great school spirit that motivates students to study.
Som... ... middle of paper ... ...athletes get a lot of privileges, maybe too many. They need to put college classes first, because they are student athletes. I understand that winning the games is important, but are sports more important than academics? Some of them put so much of their focus into sports that classes come second to them. The popularity and glory may get to their heads, and they might dedicate their whole life to sports.
Not only are they bringing in money for the school they are also creating a good image for the school and getting the schools name out there. Maybe even interest other young athletes to want to come and play for the school. Throughout the years some players such as Johnny Manziel (Texas A&M) (Berkes) and Cam Newton (Auburn) (ESPN) have been accused of making money while still a college athlete. With this being said, they faced serious consequences if found guilty. College athletes should not be get paid to play for multiple reasons, some being scholarships, some being a student comes first, not an athlete.
There are always stories of former students talking about a teacher that taught the something important, something more than just numbers and words on page. They taught character. Teachers affect our character just as much as society. However, not everyone believes that character changes at
Although academic institutions claim to procure means to aid athletes in the classroom, there are still vast conundrums plaguing society concerning the miseducation of these individuals. One such plight is athlete apathy towards education. This is not a generalization about college athletes but a specification concerning the select few that are unopaquely there to just play sports. This statement is in reference to the athletes that possess the pseudonym “one and done.” The National Basketball Association and its players’ union necessitate that players be one year removed from high school before entering the NBA draft. This rule forces a certain amount of players to enroll in colleges without any intent on getting an education.
Also, in terms of applying for jobs and working in the future, participating in sports gives students an edge in getting hired. Kevin Kniffin said, “Hiring managers expect former student-athletes (compared with people who participated in other popular extracurriculars) to have more self-confidence, self-respect and leadership.” This can greatly benefit students in the
There are many students who play sports and get good grades. Thus, schools may restrict the development of students by canceling sports. According to Jay and Daniel, "Research has found that schools that offer more sports and field more successful teams produce higher test scores and graduation rates. So, there is no reason to believe that schools that emphasize sports do so at the expense of other educational goals." Schools always take decisions, which they believe are helpful to the students, such as restricting sports.
Our school district has recently brought up an absurd suggestion, that high school sports should no longer be funded. However, I and many other students believe that high school sports have come to benefit students. Sports benefit players educationally, they aid in the process of developing the ability to set goals and go after those goals, and they promote educational aspirations, closer ties to school , and occupational aspirations. The funding of high school sports should continue. According to the National Federation of State High School Activity Associations, sports promote “participation and sportsmanship” in an effort to “develop good citizens through interscholastic activities which provide equitable opportunities, positive recognition and learning experiences to students while maximizing the achievement of educational goals.” Being involved in high school sports helps to increase academic success, if sports aren’t funded students grades may drop and they may even has less success in school.
