Let us think first that what does homework help us in? Overworked Students, less outdoor activities, dropping results, lack of interest. Is this what homework was meant for? Wasn’t it meant to do the opposite?
Today I am going to be talking about a problem that affects us all. And the problem is… homework! We all hear the usual moans and groans when the teacher says that we have homework, but honestly not many people actually like doing homework, it takes up almost 60% of our free time. In the free time we have we should be doing things such as sports, chores and time to relax. Not more and more work!
Homework does help, but after doing 1 or 2 hours of it, students usually start to slack off and then that causes them to do poorly on their homework, which then affects their grades. The work just becomes boring. And having homework it stresses students out, and the less homework that we have to worry about, the less stress we would have. Less homework would help students in many ways.
After going to school for 6 hours, 3 or 4 hours of homework is not needed. Shouldn’t students be able to have a life outside of school? If they have joined any sports teams they usually get home later in the night. After rushing through dinner, they have to finish homework. There is no way to do it all, and get a good night of sleep as well. Spending all this time on homework does not let us spend much time with friends and family.
Staring at a piece of paper, or the screen of a computer hour after hour is just so frustrating, and makes students want to rip up the piece of paper, or throw the computer out the window. But since we cant do that, we just end up giving up on homework.
Teachers do a lot of work themselves. They have to correct homework, tests and teach students heaps of information in one school year. However, if teachers just gave out less homework, it would be one less thing that they would have to do. Less homework would make school more interesting, and make life...
