Residence and Transfer Ineligibility Rule It is sad to say but discrimination still exists to this day. It can be disguised in anything rather than being flat out obvious for someone to notice in a split second, such as in high school sports. “If a student attends a school outside of his or her ‘Home Attendance Zone’ he or she is automatically ineligible for one year unless he or she meets the provisions of the Residence and Transfer Rule” (LHSAA). This Louisiana High School Athletic Association is against an athlete’s rights because it is discriminating on the athlete’s home address in which they have no control over where they live and the school they can choose to go to. Students should be allowed to play sports no matter where they go to school. I was a victim of this Residency rule. It was all because of where I simply lived which I had no control of at all. Unless I decided to move out and live somewhere else. Saint Thomas More Catholic High School was out of my school zone district but I still chose it because the academics were better than the school in my home district. The academics were my first priority in choosing a school that will prepare me for college, which Saint Thomas More Catholic High School exceeded in that area. The high school that I attended just happened have a sport that I enjoyed. I had to go to all the practices, games, and risk my body for potential career ending injuries and not being able to play was like working on a job without getting a pay check. The worst part was having to watch my teammates play knowing that I could not do anything to bring to my team to help them to become better basketball individuals each day. To punish a student for an act that they have no control of is unfair and makes no contribution to that students well-being. Parents are the ones who usually make the decision as to where their kids attend school, so to punish the kid for their parents decision is sending the wrong signal to kids. Most parents want the best for their children. They want them to soar for in life in the big world and have a good education background as to where the children can use this tool for getting jobs or for other life purposes. Discipline, love, care, and a good education are what make this possible for their children’s future. Of these four elements, a good education is the foundation for children to be successful in today’s society. However, they go out like poachers, hunting in the mist of this world. No matter what it takes, they will not give up. And when they find prey that has good resources, the search is over. To deprive a student’s opportunity to compete in any high school sports activities at the school they attend is depriving them of so much more than just a contest. It has the potential of robbing them of obtaining a scholarship to attend college. College tuition is very expensive today. For some students, an athletic scholarship may be their only ticket to afford college and also their ticket of becoming the successful person that they wish to be in life. Playing sports maybe the only way for a student to get into college, by being deemed ineligible to play sports in during any year of your high school career could have a negative impact on that student to be looked at by top colleges.

The United States has always been known as the melting pot of the world, where an unbelievable amount of races, cultures and ethnic groups come together to form one diverse and cultured land. As alluring as this metaphor is, a more realistic one is “all that glitters is not gold.” While America has always seen to be the “Land of the Free” it has a very devastating and racist past. America is known for its, history for discriminating against Native Americans, Latinos, African Americans, Asians, and…
The aims are what the school wants to achieve. They could include the goals, targets, intentions and purpose.

For the persons that resided in Northern Ireland, Protestants and Catholics alike, it did not matter whether they lived on the same…
School vouchers: Are they effective or damaging?
During the 1950s, Noble Prize winning libertarian economist, Milton Friedman, made the first proposal for American education to include a voucher system. However, it was not until the 1980’s when the nation’s first school choice voucher program came into effect, which was passed by the legislature of Wisconsin, and provided parents the opportunity to choose the school where they felt was appropriate for their child. The Friedman Foundation defined…
elementary and junior high education but little is mentioned about the underlying religious nature of these early immigrants. Communion of Immigrants, by James T. Fisher, brings forth the extreme importance of this religious dichotomy and attempts to unwrap some of the more important events brought forth by Catholic immigrants and their mark on our current American ideals. With the Protestants coming first and forming the early colonies and then the later waves of immigrants, mostly Catholic, to these Protestant…

I never had a chance to choose my own beliefs growing up. My parents made me Catholic ever since I can remember. They forced me to go to church, made me go to sleep early and wasn’t allowed to play outside between certain hours to keep me safe. I always had to dress and behave properly. This has taught me that the government is very…
