I think that teaches responsibility, preps them for college, and gives them a better shot at getting a full ride in college. I would LOVE to not have to pay for college. I remember going to high school with kids who worked. Some were able to balance school and work great, but many of them blew school off and even used certain classes to catch up on sleep.
Me and and my 2 younger sisters had to get jobs at 16, if we wanted money to have things like a car to drive, or a cell phone. All 3 of us graduated high school with honors. we were all told that if our grades suffered AT ALL, we'd have to quit working.

Thanks to Bokkechick for my siggy.
