Studies suffer under work pressure

Every child in America has a job: going to school. So when students tackle a part-time job, schoolwork often gets laid down by the wayside in an effort to earn money to provide for daily expenses.

High school life can become expensive as students begin to drive and go to social activities. Parents start to expect their kids to get jobs, hoping that work in the real world will develop a sense of responsibility and help foot the bill.

What employers and parents often forget is that a teenager’s primary role is to study. Employers can get so consumed in their business that they over work students, not realizing that they have schoolwork waiting to be completed.

Students often feel overworked. They wish that their employer would realize that they have another side of life that demands their time too. When they are worked relentlessly on the job, schoolwork suffers.

All the pressures that come from the workplace only add to the constant stress that school brings. This leaves a student bewildered, overworked and short-changed. However, a balance can often be found and the best of both worlds can be achieved.

There are teens who feel that working while attending school can be worth the extreme exhaustion. Even though sacrifices have to be made, the benefits of working during school can be very rewarding.

In the end, it is up to the student to decide whether working during school is worth the stress.
