Why this petition matters

Started by Leela Fleck

As someone who is a hard worker in school and has definitely experienced burnout, there have been times when it feels like all I was doing was work. No time for friends or things I found enjoyable and fulfilling, and I found that I would start becoming less and less productive. 

I know that as students we all know what this feeling is like. We all try to push through, but at a certain point, it becomes difficult for it to not affect our mental health and our grades. We are all taught that college is the most important thing and our grades must remain high, so it is extremely difficult not to feel pressure. 

Mental health is more important now than ever. Allowing teens to experience life outside of school is crucial to our development and to succeeding in school. With more time for ourselves and for enjoyable activities, the more we will be able to focus in school and become more productive and successful. 

If you agree and believe that schoolwork should be eliminated or at least lightened on the weekends, sign your name and join the list.
