Linking Poor Performance to Working After School

Linking Poor Performance to Working After School. Quote: “The Third International Mathematics and Science Survey, where low exam scores of American students stir such great concern, found that 55 percent of American 12th graders work three hours or more on a normal school day. The proportion for other nations is 18 percent, on average. To improve achievement, we have either got to cut back on after-school employment or transform adolescent jobs so they contribute more to learning”

Comment: This has always surprised me about the U.S..  When I was in school, I didn't have time to work. [Serious Instructional Technology]
