The purpose of the study was to find what motivates high school students to work during the school year. Interviews with the five volunteer students, their counselor, and their teacher, were the major resources for collecting data for the study. Each student was asked the same questions. One emphasis was to address the ways they would like to accommodated in their classrooms. The major finding is that the students work primarily because of urgent financial need. Other reasons include of independence, freedom, and being able to finance entertainment and other social activities. The students indicated that they would like to be accommodated by having more in class work, less homework, and by group work, because of lack of after school time and matters of fairness. Still, they do not ask for any kind of accommodation, but wait for it to be offered by a teacher.
