Homework is ruining the mental health of students. Homework is exhausting and mentally draining. It stresses students out and makes them feel like they have no room for anything other than homework. I think we all know at the moment that the education system is messed up as a result from COVID-19 but we should be learning enough in class, not being forced to do unnecessary work at home that stresses them out. I know that many people, including myself have panicked, stressed and even cried about homework. Young people already have enough on their minds and homework isn't helping. Young people are getting upset and stressed about something that can be prevented.
If this petition wins, homework will be banned in this school, causing students to become happier and les stressed about deadlines and completing the seemingly ever-growing pile of homework. For example in The Philip Morant School and Collage in Colchester, Essex have officially placed a blanket ban on homework. You can read the Mirror article here.
Also, in Finland, homework has also been banned and the numbers show that it hasn't made much of a difference. For example, in the UK, around 91% of students graduate High School and in Finland, the High School graduation rates are around 93%. This shows that the lack of homework in schools in Finland actually hasn't made any difference.
