This paper analyses the labour supply decisions of a cohort of 16 year-olds who were born in 1958 in England and Wales. It traces through the effects of part-time employment by teenagers still in full-time education on subsequent academic performance and school leaving decisions within a three equation structural model. Our results show that part-time work, educational attainment and school leaving decisions are all related to each other. Our analysis examines the impact of a wide range of variables on these events. We find, for instance, that class size not only affects exam performance, but has also an impact on school leaving decisions.
