In recent years, educators have become concerned about athletes not being able to complete their college work.
Educators have wondered if the guidance and counseling services in the schools have become aware of this and are doing something to help these potential athletes who might continue their education after finishing their junior and senior high school work. These and countless other questions remain unanswered. All of these things have left questions in the minds of educators about what should be done to improve the academic standards of the athlete. The curricula is being broadened each year to meet the needs of the potential athletes.
Educators must seek means, methods, and standards whereby help and advice can be afforded the young athlete. If educators fail to prepare these young people, they have not completed the task for which they have dedicated themselves.
The objective of the school programs is to prepare the student mentally, socially, and physically for the vocation he may pursue after graduation. The literature reveals that administrators must provide a program of such nature, such that the potential athlete can prepare himself academically as well as athletically.
