Should athletes have to be on the honor roll to play in games?
Transcript of Should athletes have to be on the honor roll to play in games?
the honor roll to play in games? Work Cited: Alaska, Hawaii, California,
Nevada, Utah, New Mexico, Arkansas, Mississippi, Florida, West Virginia, Maryland, and Washington D.C. all have GPA standards. I think students not on the honor roll should not be allowed to play in games. Some people argue against this rule saying that sports are the only thing keeping some kids in school. There's two parts to being a student-athlete, being a student and an athlete,
and being a student comes first. If that is really the only reason some kids stay in school how does that affect kids who are there to learn? If an athlete is able to keep his or her grades up they shouldn't have to compete with people who only work on sports. GPA Standereds: Mike Oriard a former collage football player is convinced that collage football is now more about the money than the education. "It's all about the money." Investing in your education brings a lifetime of benefits. Sports bring only short term rewards. College players are expected to spend more time on the field and less in the classroom.
