Netflix Picks: Schooled, The Price of College Sports

Laying around the house with nothing else to do, but cycle through the never ending supply of shows and movies on Netflix? We got you covered. Here’s a little guidance on something dope that you’d enjoy


Synopsis: “A documentary that examines how college sports in America became a billion dollar enterprise built on the backs of its unpaid athletes.”

With College Football season coming up this is a great film to check out. ‘Schooled’ explores well the contradictions of the so-called amateurism, presenting a less than flattering story on the historical origins of the idea of a pure system where athletes play for the love of the game only.

The debate on whether athletes should be compensated continues to rage on this film gives an honest look on the landscape of the NCAA, with interviews from many popular sports figures and intellectuals you will definitely come away from this film having learned something no matter what side of the argument you are on.
