Getting a Job in High School


MaKia Mcmillan

All children that are in high school should get a job. Having a job keeps you busy and working. If you are able to do all aspects that the job title requires, then you should work. Most of the 11th and 12th Graders at Charles Herbert Flowers have jobs. Having a job teaches you responsibility but also you have to know how to balance school and work. Often times students are so tired from their jobs that their not performing in school as expected.

In that case if your job is taking away from your academics then you shouldn’t work while in high school. Children in High School should be students first, everything else will come later. Working a job in High School could be tiring and you have to make lots of sacrifices.
