A Legal and Critical Discourse Analysis of the Language Used to Preserve the "Myth" of a Student-Athlete
Easy, Omar X.
ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, The Pennsylvania State University
There are many factors that may influence and impact student-athletes' academic achievement and athletic performance from high school throughout college. These factors may range from family structure, socioeconomic status, parental educational level, parental school involvement, and aspirations. However, few studies have examined these factors in Division I student-athletes and related to the need for monetary compensation that might prevent numerous violations that occur every year. As a result, this current study will examine how the power of language is used to dominate and suppress the need for changes or equality in the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA), which may enhance the survival and success of Division 1 student-athletes.
