  • Dont need free time... SO WHY NOT

    Most teens dont do anything with their time. They only play video games or be on facebook. Why not use that time to make a little money? It cant hurt to actually do something once in a while... So get off your butt and say why not? Get a job bro.

  • Self-reliance in a world of only reliance.

    In basic theory, many will find that working hard at a young age is something that should be avoided. Due to factors involving personal success, it is not a bad thing to work a job while in high school. The reasons being that a job can help with more than just making money. Some fields can offer reasonable experience for people who do not know their life's calling. Getting a job at a young age is not always a McDonald's, burger flipping job. Jobs can be in apprenticing with other people in fields that a person would like. Value is not always in money.

  • To build self-independence

    Students don't need to rely on their parents for school funds instead they can use the money they saved from having a after school job. Furthermore, they can also pay their college fees using their own hard earned money not their parents money which was earned from unnerved hard work as a show of gratitude.

  • Yes, work ethic is a good thing.

    Yes, high school students should have jobs, because it is helpful to the educational experience. Jobs in high school are fun for students who can earn spending money, either for college or for other things. Jobs in high school are helpful because they teach students how to be responsible and balance multiple demands on their time.

  • Experience in the real world

    To gain the experience the real world and learn how to work for what they want on their own while they are young. Who wants to be the college student that never worked anywhere before has no experience and doesn't even know how to get a job. They also gain communication skills witch we all need when it comes to the working environment. They also start to learn how to handle money.

  • Stress relief, extra money, and experience

    High school students need jobs to gain experience in the work force while they're young, they can test out different ones to find out their strengths and weaknesses. It offers a place to get away from home, school, and help them feel like they're making a difference out in the world. Extra money is a total bonus too, it's like a tiny little reward for doing your job good, they can spend it on stuff they want to, if they want a new car, college, clothes, electronics, phones, or even dogs. They just need to find a job that won't interfere with school or sleep, and there are MANY out there like that. I'm in high school, have a job, get good grades and don't regret it one bit!

  • It is a good pass time and helps make money

    High school students are mature enough to handle a job. We need to learn the responsibility ourselves and we need the money for gas and other things that our parents should not have to handle for us. We have anywhere from three years left to one year left and we need to learn what it is like in the real world because after that it is how we are going to spend the rest of our lives.

  • Students should work while in high school.

    If a student has passing grades he/she should be able to work. Also, their are students who need money for like clothes, food, and other things because their parent(s) don't have enough money. Also, you learn real life skills working and with school you don't learn skills that would help you out in the real world.

  • Too Many Selfish Parents

    The people who want their kids to have jobs to pay for things do not have their kids best interest at heart. These are the parents who don't want to pay for their child's car, car insurance, clothes. There is the minor benefit of learning the value of a dollar but not enough to set your kid down the wrong path. Parents need to stop looking at it as a way to ease their own burden and start thinking about their kid's future. Stop being selfish and let them focus on what is going to make them more money in the long run and probably even save you money later on.

  • Students should NOT working during high school.

    If a student works during high school then they do not have the chance to be in a sport or are able to keep up a good GPA. I think it is very important that a child is to focus on their school work and to be able to have social gatherings with their friends.

  • Time off for yourself

    How many of you like to have free time to yourself so you can relax and do what you please? Having a job in high school can alter a great majority of the time you get to yourself. The side I am taking is that having a job in high school should not be a requirement. High school only takes up 4 years of your life, so you should take advantage of all the extra curriculum activities available… you have the whole rest of your life to work!

  • Its not a good ting

    I dont like how we have to have an after school job if they passed this some people wont have a way to go to work so I think that we shouldnt have to have an after school job. Its pointless to some people some people wont do the job.

  • They stop caring

    A kid in my AP classes lays out frequently because he just doesn't care after working. I know other kids who work that only care about getting their money, and they're starting to fail. If you can keep good grades with a job, you should have amazing grades without one.

  • Education or Money!

    High school students shouldn't work during high school because they are focus more on the pay, lose concentration on their education, and have sleep reduction. These students will either become a drop out or end up in court due to attendance in school for not attending. Parents shouldn't approve of their kids working full time or half time until they are finished with their education!

  • Academics, Activities, Home

    More colleges give out grants and scholarships to students with higher academic scores. Studies show that students spend 45 minutes less on their homework on the days that they work, which can lowers their grades by up to two grade levels. They would not have time to have extra activities.

  • School should be their main focus.

    A high school student should be focusing on school and extra-curricular activities. When you add a job into the mix it can cause a lot of anxiety and stress that they do not need. Colleges and Universities do not look to see if you were making money during high school. They are looking to make sure you were involved with your school and a good student.
