College athletes have such a busy academic schedule and practice schedule all throughout the week which makes their school year very stressful, so why shouldn't they be compensated for their time dedicated to sports. Since the first college sports game, the athletes have never been financially rewarded for their efforts in sports. Yes, they have received scholarships, but college kids that are financially struggling can't always support school, athletics, and a job. College athletes should be paid for participating in college sports to help pay for any expenses outside of school. They should get the money they played hard to earn, and also it would help eliminate recruiting and under the table payments. Playing a college sport is like a full time job, except for no pay like a real job.

With an intense schedule like this, they are left with no time to make a living. They are giving their all to the sport that they’re in, and are always striving to get better and succeed. During all of this they don't receive any sort of payment for their efforts that would help them in meeting some ends and paying bills for things they purchased outside of school.

The teacher will put a topics or questions and we students are supposed to respond. A thread is a post that we are making when we participate in a discussion. I am very new…
What I Learned As a Teacher
When I first started teaching the AP English Language and Composition course 11 years ago, I added more nonfiction to my lesson plans. Still, during those first years, I persisted in teaching much of the fiction (and even some poetry) I had taught in the past, adapting my presentation of the works to suit the AP English Language course. It was a natural approach for me because fiction had been the focus of my academic life. In addition, the AP workshops I attended…

The boy thrashed on the floor as he begged and cried over and over again, his mother was oblivious to her son’s actions. He wailed and screams till he finally got what he wanted; he wanted a piece of candy. Finally I turned around at the noise and stared at his mother hoping the look I was giving her would actually make her do something about her disobedient son; I failed at the attempt. His father finally gave in to the little boy…

When I was enrolled in the B.A. (Hons) Finance, Accounting and Management programme at the University of Nottingham Ningbo, I did not know I would foster such a strong interest in finance. From financial statements to financial instruments, great delight was evidenced in my study. Reviewing the past three years, my understanding towards classic financial theories was raised from vivid case studies and seminar discussions. Thanks to the advanced British concept of education, I was trained to think…
