Part-time work of high school students and impact on educational outcomes
Patton, Wendy A. & Smith, Erica (2009) Part-time work of high school students and impact on educational outcomes. Australian Journal of Guidance and Counselling, 19(2), pp. 216-224.
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. The present paper presents a review of recent research, primarily from Australia and the US, although it is acknowledged that there are considerable contextual differences. Suggestions for school counsellors to harness the students’ experiences to assist in educational and career decision-making are presented.
