College Athletes Getting Paid to Play

Ever realized how early a college athlete leaves college, or how much money they receive for autographs? The number is too high. Student athletes should focus on school and playing the game for passion, instead of money. Athletes in college need to focus on getting an education in school first. Most athletes only go to college for sports "just 44% of men"s basketball players graduate within six years" (Players). That number is under half and way too low. Some say that a college education isn"t...

This House Would abolish homework

Benjamin_Manus
Defro

NOTE: This is an official Connecticut Debate Association resolution. The whole point of public schools is to teach the students then and there, not to send them home with hours of homework, especially in 9th through 12th grade. When a student has hours of homework to do, it gets very stressful, chiefly when that student has other after-school programs to attend. Students often stay up late at night completing their homework and do not get enough sleep, therefore not preparing them for the nex...
