Transcript of Why Homework Should Be Banned

Period 6
My Opinion:
Homework should be banned in all schools and it shows that it is a waste of our time. About 8 hours of our day is dedicated to school so why make us go back home to do more homework
Majority of students are involved in extra curricular activities. Going home late at night after having to get up early for school then go to practice or your job after school and then get home late eat and shower. By the time you're done showering it's late.
Homework requires times to do and if others don't have that time to do it then they stay up all night to do it which results in lack of sleep that is suppose to be an important factor to our health
Why Homework Should Be Banned

Stress is very unhealthy for growing teens and statistics show that 29% of 13-year-old students report spending 2 hours or more on homework daily in the U.S
a 2004 University of Michigan survey of 2,900 six- to seventeen-year-old children found that time spent each week on homework had increased from 2 hours 38 minutes to 3 hours 58 minutes since 1981

Over the last two decades lawmakers and business leaders have increased pressure on schools because of global competition. And because of this the pressure has fallen onto the students yet U.S. students score the lowest on international achievement tests. The amount of homework has increased and caused more stress.
My Experience
Mr. Fitch's Class
Number Of Hours Per Week
Usually my schedule is always full because of sports so by the time I get home I'm already tired and want to go to sleep but I can't because of homework I tend to stay up late at night. Not only is it just one or two classes giving out homework but its three to five classes which creates stress. Not only that but if I don't do it, it piles up and my grade starts to drop.
