Yes. It helps them to be more responsible. Only if their grades are up to par. If not, they should attend summer school so that they can catch/keep up.

I strongly agree! It will be excellent to list work experiences on a college application.

No. Instead, employ your student with a "summer job" that will provide a real and lasting benefit: mathematics. Students who do not put in the time needed to master high school math will be left in the dust in when college comes around.

No. They will be working for the rest of their lives after college. They should take the summer to study for their college admissions.

yes, for a taste of the real (and their parents') world, for confidence and for learning about and generating finances.

Yes I think they should. During the school year they can't really work due to homework and other activities.
I think they should be jobs that they aren't going to necessarily be doing after they graduate High School.

Summer jobs are a chance for kids to get a small taste of what's out there besides the bubble that is high school.
