Dietary Intakes And Eating Habits Of College Athletes


The authors argue that the efforts to resolve inequities through the courts or with legislation need to move beyond funding. Furthermore, reforms must focus on both funding levels and equal access to resources shown to be fundamental to a quality education. Twenty-three states send more funding to their wealthiest districts; Pennsylvania sends 33% less to their high-poverty districts. Only 1/5th of states spend more money on their neediest schools, half as many as did in 2008. Despite receiving more money from the federal government, the majority of districts with Title 1 schools see unequal funding for staff and even less money for non-staff costs. Minority students are disproportionately impacted as white students attend low-income schools 18% of the time versus 60% of the time for black and Hispanic students.


According to the table of Demographic and Academic Information for Athletes and the General Student Population, it is evident that non-athlete students on average have higher GPA's than student athletes. The national average high school GPA for athletes was 2.99 and 3.31 for non-athletes. The national average college GPA for student athletes is 2.56 with a national graduation rate of 34.2% where as non-athletes average GPA is slightly higher at 2.74 with a national graduation rate of 46.8%. The GPA averages are not too far off but the education received by non-athletes is far greater than a student athlete because of the lack of time the student athlete has to study. The highly popular athletes, such as basketball players, are normally focused on the next game or the pressures to win instead of the school work.


Once a district’s guarantee is established, that funding level is compared to the district’s available local revenue sources. If a district’s local revenues turn out to be less than its guarantee, the state of Wyoming makes up the difference through a series of entitlement payments distributed to the district throughout the school year. State Medicaid programs can reimburse these providers for telehealth services just as they do for in-person visits without obtaining federal approval, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services explained in a recent release. That said, some states have restrictions on what services must be delivered in person, especially for students with disabilities. Schools are grappling with how to deliver services—such as physical or occupational therapy—or meet timelines set in individualized education plans required under federal law.


That's why some colleges, such as the University of Southern California and Stanford University, opposed the bill. College sports generate billions of dollars for schools, networks, and corporate sponsors. That’s exactly the sort of iron grip over pricing that antitrust laws are supposed to prevent.
