There have been many studies that show that working less than 15-20 hours a week increases the students GPA (Effects of Employment). Work is difficult and time consuming. This teaches the students to grow up and mature; it offers them the opportunity to do something else besides studying. Although working while going to college may seem impossible, it’s actually teaching the student skills that will improve the way they are, once they leave college and go onto following their careers. Much of who you are and what you have succeeded happens during college.
Schools can give responsibility to students but never without a cost. Students should have to chance to prove their worth to schools and show how responsible they can be as adults. When students go to college classes as high schoolers they sometimes tend to have more free time during those times. If a child has enough responsibility to take those classes they should have enough to leave school and be trusted to come back to school after their free time is over. Although leaving school early is not something that is smiled upon it should be because some students are ahead and can work their schedule to allow extra time because of hard work in early years.
By understanding topics such as insurance, taxes and banking, they would greatly improve their chances of being financially stable. In conclusion, a life skills class should be included in high school curriculums before the student graduates. In fact, many colleges today offer life skills classes that cover a wide range of subjects. While there are many types of life skills that can be taught, at a minimum, insurance, taxes, and banking should all be required due to the direct impact on a person's finances. High school prepares students for college, vocational training, and work but does not empower a student with the skills needed to navigate through the financial maze that occurs as that student leaves high school.
It can teach them responsibility as well as money management. If the student picks and gets a job anywhere close to their career goals it can give them a head start on that career. It can also help them realize what kind of career they may want, and possibly if that part time job is one they thought they wanted to do and discover they truly don’t like it and then start to re think what they really want and like to do. Of course a working high school student will learn the value of money by being able to purchase items they want such as new fashions and new electronic gadgets. A job would allow them to do things with their friends such as movies and dinners without having to ask for money from their parents.
Growing up in a household where your parents want you to do better than they did, because they didn’t get a college education. Also most high salary paying jobs require some type of college degree, so that’s tell a person if you want to make a lot of money get a higher education.

The reason that some students need a part time job is to help their parents pay their needs. However, many people are against the idea of students having a part time job because they think that it is the reason for failing in school. There are many benefits for a students to work part time such as having a better time management skills, gain experience and learn the value of money. First of all, students who work part time will have a good time management. These students will have no difficulties from doing their duties and will have enough time for doing other things.

Being involved in extracurricular activities in high school will help students find their niche in college extracurricular activities. By taking challenging courses in high school, the students’ academic transition to college will be easier.
Despite that fact, something students will certainly need knowledge of every day for the rest of their lives is the nation’s economy and how it operates. The purpose of school is to give students the information they need, so they will not encounter a Sink or Swim scenario. Economics is a life jacket that will help students face the outside world and know how to handle its curve balls. Students need a high school economics course; it will help with the students’ potential goals and help them understand choices that will not only impact them, but the nation as a whole. For students, knowing how to handle their money is essential to their success.
Students spend four years of their lives attending high school. Going through high school is mandatory as it prepares them for college and strength to face “the real world.” Having part-time jobs has become the phenomenon among high school students and many students follow this trend as well. Moreover, there are some pros and cons attached with it. Though it may seem like working throughout high school is a bad idea, it could better prepare students for “the real world.” Although some people believe that the primary duty of a student is studying, I am of the opposite position. I strongly support the idea that high school students should work throughout high school.
Such examples include, but are not limited to: getting a year away from school and coming back more focused, it helps a person decide their future, looks impressive on future resumes, it is becoming more acceptable, and students get the opportunity to learn about different cultures. “By the third and fourth semester - so getting into the degree, into the guts of the degree if you like - the gap year students were pulling ahead” (Martin). One reason to consider taking a gap year is because students get a year off from the academic life style, and when they come back they are ready to try their hardest in college. As Martin explained, Gap Year students ended up “pulling ahead” of those who did not take a Gap Year. By that, Martin meant that those who took a Gap Year were more focused, and understood more than their peers who went to college right after they graduated.
