Too much homework and so little time.

It’s not new information that students have a lot of homework and don’t like doing it. As students get older, homework gets piled on day after day. The amount of homework students have on the daily overwhelms and stresses them out.

As a student who is in honors and AP classes, I have multiple assignments due throughout the week,on top of tests, projects, studying, family time, social life, sports and time to myself.  

Stress is unhealthy for teenagers, and most of the stress is due to the amount of homework they have and a short time limit to do it. If teachers need to get material done in class, they need to make the time if it’s that important.

It’s the teacher’s job to teach the class what they need to know, and giving them a piece of paper at the end of class to do at home isn’t the same thing than the students learning it from an actual person.

I don’t think teachers understand that their class isn’t the only class that gives out assignments. Adding an hour of homework to an already three, doesn’t help anyone.

Homework is an unnecessary evil because all it does is stress students out.
