High Schoolers More Worried Than Ever About Finding Jobs
According to a new Gallup poll, more and more high schoolers say they aren't confident that they'll find a good job after graduating.By Ben Levin | February 4, 2015
It's a time for prom and Friday night football, for band camps and, maybe, a first kiss.
But according to a new Gallup poll, high school is also a time for pessimism about the future. In a poll of more than 800,000 public high school students, fewer than half strongly agreed with the statement that they'll find a good job after they graduate.
The data shows a different story for kids in younger grades: 68 percent of 5th graders strongly agreed with the same statement.
