Does High School Employment Affect High School Academic Performance?
Oettinger, Gerald S.
Industrial and Labor Relations Review, v53 n1 p136-51 Oct 1999
Survey data from 1979 to 1983 show that regular employment of high school students at modest weekly hours was associated with higher grades within grade levels. Extensive school-year employment had large, significant negative effects on the academic performance of minority students. Summer jobs had no effect on grades. (SK)
