Importantly for summer employment considerations, the percentage of teens enrolled in school during July of any given year – which the BLS uses as a standard measurement of how many folks are enrolled in summer classes – sat at 42.1 percent in 2016.

Back in 1985, just 10.4 percent of teens were in school during the month of July.
