Part-Time Work of High School Students and Impact on Educational Outcomes
Patton, Wendy; Smith, Erica
Australian Journal of Guidance and Counselling, v19 n2 p216-224 Dec 2009
While increasing numbers of young high school students engage in part-time work, there is no consensus about its impact on educational outcomes. Indeed, this field has had a dearth of research. This paper presents a review of recent research, primarily from Australia and the United States, although it is acknowledged that there are considerable contextual differences. Suggestions for school counsellors to harness students' experiences to assist in educational and career decision-making are presented.
