All of the early experience students I’ve had and the last student teacher I had do not have jobs. They finance all of their education at our local private university. When did people quit working their way through college?
Unfortunately it’s virtually impossible for a student to work through school anymore because of the cost of tuition combined with cost of living. When I was in school ( graduated 2010) I was making $13/ hour working 32-40 hours per week as a security guard. Not a lot, but better than a lot of other people I know. But with rent, car payment, insurance, utilities, gas, groceries, etc, all very reasonable expenses for a person living on their own, it was impossible to pony up an extra $2,500 for tuition every three months during the school year. “Financial aid” (loans/grants) were the only option.
