Balancing Work and Learning: Implications for Low-Income Students, a new research paper from the Georgetown University Center on Education and the Workforce, details the implications of working while getting a post-secondary education and how these impacts differ for low- and high-income students. High-income students tend to benefit from work, which is likely to be in their career field and helps build a useful network for job searching. Meanwhile, low-income students are less likely to be working in their career field and more likely to suffer academically. School choice and how it is financed is also greatly affected by income level. The authors offer a summary video, too!
