Incorrect. Couldn't care less - it was simply the topic on a radio show and I posted on my blog about it many years ago, then when someone else commented on it I started the thread here.
1) She has found a good guy who takes care of his family and they work things out. A fairly unlikely reality.
2) She gets a part time job at Walmart and let her receive an EBT card to help her put food on the table. She gets pregnant again and the cycle continues and probably gets worse.
Huh? The student got pregnant. Why do you feel particularly sorry for her when she had incredibly big incentives NOT to get pregnant?
Why should they? They gave her an athletic scholarship with the understanding that she would compete for the team. The school gives her an education, she gives her athletic ability. If she deprives them of her athletic ability because of something that's 100% preventable, then the school should be under no requirement to continue to uphold their half of the contract.
Why? Should a student given an academic scholarship keep it if he decides partying is more fun than studying and gets Ds or Fs in his classes (i.e. he can't perform academically because of preventable choices)?
The problem with that statement? It contains the qualifiers "large Universities" and "many." So not even ALL of the LARGE universities. What about ALL of the SMALLER and MEDIUM sized ones?
So? Good for her. The cost to students is still really, really high. To pretend that kids these days are mostly getting by on scholarships and not having to pay for their college is silly and foolish.
- Student athlete and college create a contract.
- Student fails to uphold their side of the contract.
- College continues to pay out on the contract?
