I think that students have too much homework and do not have enough time for other activaties that are needed to be done such as afterschool activaties. It makes them stressed out and even so they spend the whol night in their room studing (it makes them stressed out alot). they need to have time to spend with family and have time to themselvs.

Research shows that homework reading assignments of 20 minutes per night improve reading and writing, concepts and vocabulary acquisition, and overall school performance. And, reading seems to be the only type of homework touted for its benefits to learners in studies on homework. Here's my blog post about the homework debate.

Home work is a horrible thing. I do not agree with most critics who say that home work should be a must. I think that home work should be put in to the by-laws. No home work in the province of Ontario. We are a free country we will not be submised!

In my opinion I think that the kids do get too much homework each night. They should not have to spend their whole night on doing homework. They should be with their family.

I think that kids get way too much homework. They get anough homework to have them working for hours. They should not have to spend all night on homework and more time with their family.

Do we have too much homework? Hmmm, let me think YES! I'm a 13 year old in 7th grade and i am not a night bird. if i get about an hour or two less of sleep, i will be tired all of the next day for sure. if homework keeps me up i won't have enough energy for the next day. Also everywhere i go i hear kids aren't getting enough exercise because of tv. well we don't really have much time for that stuff anyway! my answer:YES,YES,YES,YES,YES,YES,YES,YES,YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

To be completely honest, I feel that teens use having too much homework or being too stressed out as an exuse to underachieve. Sure things get tough at times (and I'll admit I've pulled that card on my parents too,) but when things get "piled on" chances are the teen has LET them pile up. I know that sometimes teachers are completely unconsiderate to extra-cirricular activies and events, but it's not as outrageous as a lot of kids make it sound. In addition to that, most homework originates from school work that wasn't completed in class. Life is stressful for everybody, but it can be a lot better if we learn to accept it and tackle it one step at a time instead of self distructing and blaming it on any excuse availible. Is the problem really too much work, or too much laziness?
