Many studies have emphasized the importance of relaxation and the minimization of stress for a person’s mental, physical, and intellectual health. The ideology of brief recesses from school, such as Spring Break, is that students are able to receive this relaxation and short relief from academic pressures, only to return from the break rejuvenated and better prepared to face the rest of the semester. In barraging students with surplus assignments, take home projects, and study materials over this break, one is depriving them of this much-needed release and only adding to the pile of stress that lies on their shoulders
Prohibit instructors from assigning work over Spring Break
