Employment during High School: Character Building or a Subversion of Academic Goals?
Marsh, Herbert W.
Sociology of Education, v64 n3 p172-89 Jul 1991
Tests theoretical perspectives about the effects of employment during high school. Supports a zero-sum model which suggests that working during high school subverts traditional academic goals. Finds no support for the developmental model which claims that employment during school builds character. Acknowledges that working to save money for college increased likelihood of actual attendance. (DK)
