Les étudiants et leurs parents face à l’exercice d’activités rémunérées en cours d’études : quatre portraits de familles

Abstract : In a context in which obtaining a diploma is necessary to access qualified employment and where the insistence on intergenerational mutual assistance is very strong, education in France is the object of significant parental involvement, particularly in financial terms. Based on an interview survey of 50 respondents— students and their parents who responded to the National Youth Resource Survey— the article analyses how parental assistance is provided in different social settings, how student participation in the financing of their studies is designed and what meaning is given to studies and student employment. Through four portraits of socially diversified families, it attempts to place children’s studies and paid activities within the global economy of family relationships and to shed light on each parent’s trajectory, their relationship to work, and the values transmitted to their children. Therefore, families adhere very unequally, according to their trajectories and resources, to the vision promoted by some public discourse, of student work as a solution to the financing of studies and the professional integration of graduates.
