Why this petition matters
To start off, I'd like to explain to you why we should not have homework. First, homework obviously has negative effects on students. Some effects are that the students get frustrated if they can't or don't know how to do their homework, there will be no time for the students to do extracurricular activities, and the students might just not want to learn anymore because they don't understand it. I've done some research online and I found out that statistically speaking, homework does not benefit any of us. Homework does not benefit us but studying does. Homework can be stressful enough that it can make students drop out of school because students spend too much time working instead of doing things enjoyable, such as hanging out with their friends or maybe some bonding time with the family. This might not be recognizable but homework can cause a parent/child relationship to strain and weaken as they argue whether or not to do homework now or later.
•The 13th Amendment restricts slavery and acts of slavery but homework violates this. Homework violates this because you (as a student) are forced upon your own will to do this homework and if you do not complete it you are punished. This should be considered as child labor and an act of slavery.
