Do you think kids should have homework? I don’t know because sometimes it takes hours to do. Right now I usually have homework in math science and English everyday. Sometimes I have Spanish homework and barely have social studies homework, but usually the social studies homework is hard and takes a long time to do. I don’t think we should have homework because it’s to much work to start and it gets in the way of after school activities and most importantly can cause some health problems.
The first reason we shouldn’t have homework is it’s too much work. In school we sit in a classroom doing work for almost 7 hours (besides lunch). So why do we have to do homework after working for half our day and go to the place where we can get away from school. Also we have a lot of homework on days we need to study for a quiz, and a quiz seems more important then homework. The other reason is its after school we have homework. On the weekend! When we have 3 days off from school but still have to do school work. This is the only time we have to hangout with our friends on he weekends but cant sometimes because we have homework. Lastly homework is terrible if no one can help you. If no one can help you then your doing work that you don’t understand, and if you don’t understand it what’s the point having the work you can’t do.
The clock hits 7:30 and I just get home and haven’t been home all day. Then I realize that I have to do English homework, social studies, science and math. This has happened to me many times. The second reason we shouldn’t have homework is it is a major health issue for most kids. First off, you get less sleep because some teens have to stay up all night because they get home late and still have to do a lot of homework. Students in middle school need a lot of sleep because they have to wake up at 7:15. In an article it says kids from ages 12-18 need at least 8-9 hours of sleep and some teens only get 6-7 because there up so late doing homework People in high school have a ton of homework each night and have to be at school before 7:30. My brother was up once at 12:00 or 11:30 doing his homework. He had to wake up at 7 and only got 7 hours of sleep. The second reason homework is a health issue is it gives kids a lot of stress because they have to do homework and don’t want to forget anything. This gives students more stress because they already have stress from tests and quizzes. The last reason why homework is a health issue is kids get scared because if they forget homework they don’t want their parents to yell at them. Kids hate when their parents yell at them and make them feel like they have more pressure now because the parents are all over them.
The last reason why homework is bad is that it gets in the way of after school activities and class work. First if kids have sports they might have to skip something they like to do for school work even though they did that in school. Also homework gets in the way of class. It gets in the way of class when you have to go over homework. When you could use that time in class to study or go over stuff you don’t understand. This also interrupts class if the homework check takes a long time because no one understands it. Finally it takes away the time you have with your friends when you have to leave early because you have to admit to your mom you have a lot of homework.
I don’t think we should have homework for those three reasons it’s too much work. It’s a health issue and It gets in the way of other activities. I think health is the biggest concern, because if this much work is casing health problems we shouldn’t have it to help kids not because we don’t want homework. After to reading this I hope you understand my 3 reasons why we shouldn’t have homework at all.
