In the modern era, nearly each and every adult member of a family is going to work irrespective of gender or the level of education they are in. Mostly after completing high schools many students in the USA and other countries too, start living independently and separated from their family. Therefore for meeting their personal expense, they need to work and fulfill their expenses like house rent, education fee, and other necessary bills. However, many students after completing their high school go for further education which includes Graduation and Masters, where some of them also go for specialization like Ph.D.
Therefore, those students who do not go for further studies after completing their high schools remain focused doing their work as they drop education in their lives. However, those who are carrying both teaching and work at the same time find it difficult to manage time for education and get good results or satisfying results for them. It is found in research and numerous surveys that usually the academic performance of working students are below the level of performance generated by non-working students. It is very much obvious that one cannot simply get their focus right on education when they have 8-10 hours shift in a day. However, the lives of working students are not that simple as it looks and some people often brag about their independent lifestyle, but having one is not easy.
