Students are bombarded with hours of homework every night and it interferes with their lives. They are tired of staying up late at night to finish their homework or a paper that is due the next day. They should not have this workload that they have every night because they also have to live their childhood. Life is too short to be staying up until 11:00 because of schoolwork. Homework is unhealthy for students and it is not academically beneficial for them.
Your parents yell at you for being up way too late. Night after night, year after year, students deal with a tremendous amount of homework each night. Parents and children hope that homework, after students’ activities, will help children achieve academically. Yet, students spend hours on homework and find no academic achievement. Homework can cause a student to become stressed, or it can cause them to lose family time and sleep.
What is an agreeable amount of homework for a high school student? A student might say one hour, a teacher would say three. However, neither of these ideal amounts of homework are correct as far more is given every night. Teachers do believe that this helps the student to learn on a deeper level, but it instead stresses out students on a deeper level. Because health issues, excessive stress, and loss of interest in the learning experience result from overworked high school students, school need to limit the amount of homework given to their students.
We have all had it happen before. It’s 10:30 at night and you’re hungry and exhausted from the day’s activities. Before you can go to sleep, you have to do a project and 10 other pages of homework. Nowadays it seems that children are being overwhelmed with homework, even if they're just in elementary school. Is all this homework really aiding students to achieve?
Students all over the world struggle with the daily load of homework. Today, some students spend as much as five hours on homework (“Homework”). For years, people have wondered if the time spent of homework really helps as much as it claims to. Today, people talk about homework all over the world. Although homework enforces what the schools teach, it eats up time, causes stress, induces loss of sleep and research shows a way to control the homework load.
Every night is the same, frustrating routine for me: get home from a brain-rattling six-hour school day, eat as much food as I can find, do my daily chores, relax for an hour or two, and then pull out my mounds of homework due the following morning. With the addition of sports, my routine becomes chaotic. Instead of having one or two hours to relax, I am at practice for two to three hours. You can see how this would be a problem, right? Everybody needs at least a little time for himself/herself every day, but with sports in the picture, the time that I would usually have to myself is gone.
