Title IX

A Brief History with Documents

Publisher: Waveland Press

Many know Title IX as groundbreaking legislation that protects people from sex-based discrimination in education programs and activities that receive federal financial assistance. Yet, many do not know the history of women’s sports before Title IX, the history of the amendment, and the struggle for its implementation. These topics and more are discussed in Ware’s well-researched and reader-friendly Introduction, followed by 26 provocative, pertinent documents. The carefully selected writings, organized in chronological order, balance the views of policymakers, legislators, and commentators with the voices of individuals whose lives were shaped by the law. Ware purposely presents conflicting points of view to encourage analytical thinking and lively classroom discussion about gender equity, both in sports and in American society as a whole.

How do you feel about the sad state of youth, amateur, high school, and collegiate sports in our country? Are you disturbed that our sports culture may be failing our young people at every step of their development? Have you come to the point where you think something needs to be done in order to bring sports back to their original purpose? Based on his experiences in Upstate New York as a father of two athletes, a college professor, a coach, and a sports administrator, Bruce Svare examines the failings of our present sports culture. Reforming Sports Before the Clock Runs Out is both an expose on what ails our sports culture as well as a call for corrective action by all segments of our society. Focusing on an action plan, Bruce Svare boldly advances proposals that will counteract the dark side of sports, restore them to some level of balance in our culture, and return our sports landscape to its proper place in our lives.

The New Plantation

Black Athletes, College Sports, and Predominantly White NCAA Institutions

Author: B. Hawkins

Publisher: Springer

ISBN: 023010553X

Category: Education

Page: 238

View: 963

The New Plantation examines the controversial relationship between predominantly White NCAA Division I Institutions (PWI s) and black athletes, utilizing an internal colonial model. It provides a much-needed in-depth analysis to fully comprehend the magnitude of the forces at work that impact black athletes experiences at PWI s. Hawkins provides a conceptual framework for understanding the structural arrangements of PWI s and how they present challenges to Black athletes academic success; yet, challenges some have overcome and gone on to successful careers, while many have succumbed to these prevailing structural arrangements and have not benefited accordingly. The work is a call for academic reform, collective accountability from the communities that bear the burden of nurturing this athletic talent and the institutions that benefit from it, and collective consciousness to the Black male athletes that make of the largest percentage of athletes who generate the most revenue for the NCAA and its member institutions. Its hope is to promote a balanced exchange in the athletic services rendered and the educational services received.

Indentured

The Inside Story of the Rebellion Against the NCAA

Author: Joseph Nocera,Ben Strauss (Journalist)

Publisher: Portfolio

ISBN: 1591846323

Page: 369

The amount of money generated by college sports is staggering. The National Collegiate Athletic Association takes in $800 million just from its annual men's basketball tournament. Yet while the schools, coaches, TV networks, and sponsors all profit, the athletes themselves do not. These young stars, many from disadvantaged backgrounds, receive no compensation or endorsement deals and can be banned for the slightest infraction of NCAA rules. They put up with indentured servitude to chase their dreams of pro glory. A tiny handful each year reach the NBA or NFL, but what happens to the rest is an epic scandal: little or no real education, often no diploma, and a discouraging future. Bestselling author Joe Nocera, a New York Times op-ed columnist and investigative reporter, has emerged as one of the NCAA's fiercest critics. Now he delivers the definitive exposé of college sports, behind the glitz of March Madness and the Bowl Championship Series. He reveals the moral, financial, and legal ramifications of an industry that claims to protect amateur athletes while exploiting their talents and hard work. He shines a powerful light on the businessmen behind the NCAA and how their hypocrisy hurts athletes at all levels.
