Change the traditional homework system

Homework is the bane of every students existence, but it isn't a bad thing right? WRONG!!! Homework, while not a problem everywhere it is still a problem that has a simple solution. What is the problem though? The problem is that homework is a big contributing factor to a high school student's stress levels and can lead to many physical and mental health problems. According to Stanford news, "56% of the students considered homework a primary source of stress, less than 1% of the students said homework was not a stressful. Many students said their homework load led to sleep deprivation and other health problems, plus students were more likely to drop activities, not see friends or family, and not pursue hobbies they enjoy." The solution is simple, make homework optional or extra credit and if it can't be done for all classes at the very least it should be done for specific classes where homework doesn't really seem needed like english or science. Of course, another solution is to get rid of homework entirely and make it that whatever work isn't finished in class becomes homework, basically making it that classwork is homework.
