All students should have an after school job.
Debate Rounds (3)
1) Job reduces their productivity in studying. For example, when students works, it always requires some physical or mental effort, so a lot of energy is lost at job; consequently, children come home tired and don't have any desire and vigor to do homework or prepare for the exams. Education, in return, has a great impact over the future of children. if they study well, they will be able to get enrolled in a good college, and then get high-paid job. in this case, it's better to study very good now and get a full-time job with good salary in future rather than study bad due to part-time and low-paid job and lose an opportunity to have a good, stable income in the adulthood.
2) Work is time consuming. Students spend their precious time at job instead of improving their grades, enhancing relationships with family or friends. It can lead to the deterioration of connection between these students and their relatives, peers due to the lack of communication. For instance, imagine the side of a working student's parents: their kid is absent half of the day because of school, and, plus to this, 2- 3 hours at job. As a result, parents don't see their child for most of the day and don't have an opportunity to speak with him properly(because child come tired after job and isn't eager to talk very much), to ask him about his life at school, marks, friends. The similar situation with friends: while job-free students go out and communicate with each other, improving their social skills( which are, by the way, very necessary for being competitive the future), a working child loses his bounds with his friends, gradually drifting apart from them.
I'll address both of the arguments my opponent made with the following. One could say that the best measurement of whether work effects productivity for school is a look at the students' GPA. While it seems logical to conclude that since a job detracts time from a student, that it would results in a drop in GPA. However, "Most studies conclude that this is only the case when the student"s number of hours worked per week exceeds 20 hours. " In fact, students who work 1-15 hours a week actually had HIGHER GPA's on average than students who did not work and those who worked more than 20 hours  
While it's true that "64 percent [of student workers] reported that employment also increased their level of stress", it was also found that "74 percent of student "workers believed that employment forced them to become more efficient. " Ehrenberg and Sherman, from the National Bureau of Economic Research, did "not find any strong evidence...that hours of work during the academic year in the range that students worked significantly reduced grade point averages." 
Therefore, it can be concluded that working a part-time job less than 20 hours a week can actually help the GPA of students.
Another potential result in a student working is that it will take longer to graduate or possibly cause a student to drop classes. It was in fact found that there is a 10% higher chance of either occurring for students who worked more than 20 hours a week, "however, working 20 hours or less per week on campus did not seem to have an effect on drop"out rates compared to non"workers."  In fact, one expert thinks having a part-time job under 20 hours increases the chances of completing college.
Therefore, a part-time job that is under 20 hours a week is most beneficial to students, as it gives them a work ethic that will improve their grades, gives them money to help pay for college expenses, and makes it more likely they will finish college.
Even if 15 or less hour-work doesn't have an influence on students' marks, it will definitely deprive them of free time. Due to this, students won't have time for their hobbies and for expanding their outlooks by reading, watching films, etc. This time is very inportant for formation of a student's individuality and view on the world. If they are destitute of it in childhood, what to say about adulhood, when there are much more working hours? Also, exactly at this period of live children should choose their future profession according to their interests. but if they don't have any interests due to after school job, It can be very hard for them and can lead to the wrong choice of profession.
There is enough time in a day to go to classes, work, study, sleep, and have some free time left over. For example, let's say classes and walking between classes takes up 4 hours(I say four hours since usually one has about 3 classes in day in college, since few classes are 5 days a week), sleep takes up 7-8 hours, work is 4 hours+1 hour of commuting back and forth let's say, and studying is another 4 hours. Then let's take out 2 hours for getting ready for the day and to eat(that's usually how fast I was at eating 3 meals a day and getting ready). That leaves 1-2 hours of free time each day you have work, and let's not forget that if you're working 20 hours a week, 4 hours a day, that is only 5 days out of the week, so the days you don't work you have more hours left than that, 4 hours extra to be precise. In addition to that, you also don't go to classes every day so that's another 4 hours added during those days. So since that's two days for both, that adds another 16 hours of free time per week, plus the 1-2 hours of free tie when you do work and go to school, that's 21-26 hours of free time per week.
All of this really just requires time management to be honest, and that is a good skill to have.
