GilShould students have after school Jobs? Please provide your opinion on the merits and demerits of part – time jobs for students.
The idea of students
doinghaving part-time jobs is an old and rather controversial one. People are havinghave mixed opinions in this regard. Those who favor this notion ("this notion" is unclear. What notion?) believe that part-time jobs can better train theyoungsters about practical life scenarios. Part-time jobs can also help by meeting the financial needs of students. However, to some, part-time jobs have an adverse effect on the thetheir education of the individualsas they lose theconcentration on their studies. I am in favor of part-time jobs for students based on below mentioned opinionsthe opinions mentioned below.
Students will have to start their practical life eventually and to earn their bread and butter. Those having a job
from in high school can develop a thea positive attitude towards the workplace. They know the notions of hard work, responsibility and commitment better than others, which will play a vital role in securing a good job. Employers prefer graduates with some prior working experience over the fresh("fresh" doesn't fit here. "other" or, "candidates with no experience" would be better) candidates, as they will be more effective in less time. Part-time jobs can be more effective if thesethey are related to the student’s area of studies as everything cannot be taught through theory, and a real-world implementation of the concepts can make a huge difference in terms of learning.
Students who are less fortunate in terms of financial stability can use part-time jobs to continue their studies. Getting a quality education requires
morefinancial resources, which are out of reach for many. I myselfused to teach mathematics and physics to meet my personal expenses when in college. Part-time jobs can also help in the realization of future objectives in terms of career selection.
AlthoughIn some cases, people with part time jobs tend to be very weak in studies and cannot secure good grades, which will affect their education. butAppropriate measures from parents and teachers can help those individuals. Students start developing independent decision making skills. This can lead to problems and sometimes money can steer them away from thetheir studies.
part-timeworking part-time has both merits and demerits, but the merits greatly overweigh the opposite. So, I believe that students should be doinghave part-time jobs in high school.
