Open Access Graduate Research Paper
In recent years, the integrity of intercollegiate athletics has been seriously questioned by academicians and by society at large. In the 1980s, a reform movement in college athletics was launched which promises to continue throughout the 1990s. In 1986, the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) passed an important piece of landmark legislation known as Proposition 48 (P48) , which greatly impacted the reform movement in college athletics. The passage of Proposition 42 (P42) followed in 1989, but it was repealed in 1990. This study will include discussions of (1) the chronology of events which immediately preceded Proposition 48, (2) the enactment of Proposition 48 and the issues surrounding this action, ( 3) the enactment of Proposition 42 and the resulting controversy, and (4) implications of the repeal of Proposition 42 for the reform movement as a whole.
