College Atheletes… should they be paid?

September 2012

This editorial is part of our GREAT DEBATE feature ‘Should College Athletes Get Paid?’

An NCAA study revealed that college athletes spend about 40 hours per week just playing their sport. In return, college athletes receive payment in the form of a scholarship worth tens of thousands of dollars, a portion of which the IRS taxes as income.

Athletes who fail to participate in mandatory practices or games have their scholarships terminated. So college athletes are already paid to play.

So why all the fuss over this topic?
