i totaly agree that 5 hours of homework each night is TOOOOOOOOO much
persoaly i think homework should be done in school because student have lives too and if they get to much homework then they havae to miss sporting events.
give each subject 15 minutes-thats it.
if u have 4 subjects, it will only take you 45 minutes for all your hw
ever since 6th grade, i have lost much weight due to strees of schoolwork and homework. i do not like this at all!
well i am 13 years old and i think we shouldn't have homework. i am writnig a paper on why we shouldnt havent and i thoguth it would hard to find other people who say we shouldnt have it but it was very easy so heres my paper below
“ 5 minutes till your softball game,” I heard my dad scream like he was going to explode.
“ Okay, I’m coming let me finish this page,” I commented back
“Well hurry up were already 15 minutes late we were supposed to be there at 6:00 its
“Okay I’m coming now,” I shouted as I scurried down the stairs trying to put on my
This is what happens when you have tons of homework and sporting events. Your
schedule is packed full like a bull in a china room. You have to eat, do homework, go to your
sporting events , plus have to have some YOU time. And every day I ask my self how can I do
all this? Well the answer is, you can’t ! So, without homework kids wouldn’t have as much
stress, have time to do other activities, and you would get better grades.
Even thought parents say we should have homework and it’s good for us, its not. Their
not the ones with an hour or two worth of homework.. And a poll states 60% of parents think we
get to much homework these days. Now I’ve had at least an half hour worth of homework then a
test and a quiz tomorrow. So, on top of all that I also have a game that night. That’s when u get
stressed. You get stressed when worry about a test all night long. You get stressed when u miss
a homework assignment and your grade drops. You get stressed when do poorly on a quiz
because you didn’t have time to study. Another thing is a 7th grade teacher Mrs. Wong states, “
They have more to worry about and that puts more stress on students.” See how much stress
would be off our shoulders if we just didn’t have homework. Also without homework we would
have more time to do other things like sports or be with friends and family.
When you have so much homework, especially on the weekends, you don’t get much
time with your friends. As Tammy a professor says, “ It’s hard to find ‘family time’ with all this
homework. Also from timeforkids.com it shows the amount of free time we get has dropped
10% in 17 years. Also if you have a game you might not get to go or you’ll be worried about
homework and not do so well. So when you get back to school you’ll have an I- didn’t-do-my-
homework and I-lost-my-game look on your face. In fact studies show from
life.familyeducation.com a recent poll was taken and it shows 64% of the people said homework
ruins family time, stress isn’t worth the benefits, and it’s teaching their kids to hate school. Also
with all this your grades could be coming down.
Many of my friends have dropped 1 letter grade from homework assignments. And I
know what you think ,“ They can take time to do 20 minutes of homework a night.” Well if you
have 5 classes and you have 20 minutes from each class, that’s an hour and 40 minutes. Along
with that if you need to bring home a book from each class that’s a lot of weight your carrying.
People say it will make you stronger, but the truth is it makes you weaker. Studies from CBN
shows kids get back and shoulder problems from the back pack. So, to cure all these problems all
you have to do is eliminate homework.
For the couple of uniformed teachers out there that say homework is a must and it helps
us. They’re wrong! It doesn’t we just do it to do it. We hurry through so we can go play. And if
we don’t understand it ,it makes us more confused. So if you want to eliminate stress, give us
time to do other activities, and bring up are grades. Take out homework, its that simple. And
once you do that the conversation at home will go more smoothly.
“Danielle, know need to rush ,but we need to leave in about 15 minutes, so we get there
“It’s okay dad I’m ready now!”
If we would eliminate homework from all dallastown area schools it would improve all
our lives . So stand out from all the other schools and be different. Be the answer not the
i think we should have no homework because i believe we do enough of it at school. I know by expierence that when kids get home from school they want to go play not sit at home and work on social studies.
Homework is too much. Kids like us spend too much time on it and it hurts. When kids stay up later to do homework than others, it affects them. The next morning they could lose focus in class or not be able to concentrate. Their want of learning decreases and their grades keep dropping and dropping. Homework basically does not help but causes more work and stress.
there is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too much homework every weekday I do my homework till 11:30 from 3 and now theyre putting up a program where if u dont do your homework you have to stay for an hour after school, last weekend I had absolutely no free time because I had to do 2 projects, fill out these stupid cell diagrams, answer cell questions, answer Julius Caeser questions, practice for my band concert, while still being able to focus because I'm so furious at how much homework we have! It is absolutely preposterous!!! I now only get to play in the summer or those rare days where I get 1 hour of freetime! this is rediculous
