EdNext Podcast: Why Fewer Teens Are Working Summer Jobs
"As the coronavirus shakes up the economy, I think teens are probably not going to be first in line or top of the list for employers who were starting to hire back."
Education reporter David Loewenberg joins Education Next Editor-in-chief Marty West to discuss Loewenberg’s new article, which investigates the declining numbers of teens working during the summer. The trend, which predates the coronavirus closures and economic downturn, has some researchers and educators concerned.
Loewenberg’s article, “Summer School Is the New Summer Job: Why fewer teens are working—and why it matters,” is available now.
