     Do you have a job? If so does school interfere with your work? If it does how do you think we can change this?

     For most high school students 11th or 12th grade it is common for them to have a job. At this time in there life they are getting ready to be an adult and have to pay bills like car insurance, car payments, phone bills, and even for some rent.

     For students 14-15 years old they can only work three hours or less on school days and can only work 18 hours or less a week while school is in session. Students 16-17 can work unlimited hours but can only work at jobs declared non hazardous. When you are 18 you can work unlimited hours and work anywhere you want.   

    The reason school could be getting in the way of work is your hours you work you might need more to meet your needs. And the longer you work the less hours of sleep you get each night. Young adults need between 7-9 hours of sleep each night to perform at their best.

    You could be the other way. Work interferes with school if it comes down to this. You have to choose which is more important. The best choose i think is to stay in school and get good grades so you can get accepted into a good college. Then once you get accepted into a good college you can start you career. But for some this might not be an option.
