In many classes teachers, due to virtual and in school students, are assigning so much work that it is taking both a mental and emotional toll on the students and they are unable to do anything other than school and lack motivation. One 11th grade English teacher in particular is causing great distress amongst students. She assigns 13 assignments due in 4 days, and tells her students she can't make it any easier and that it is work that should be completed in 2 days, so 4 should be plenty enough time. Having said that, I've personally talked to many of her students and they have been busy with work and home life and can't get it all done, causing them to become stressed and to the point of tears and frustration. There should be a limit on the amount of homework that can be given daily and/or weekly, for every student's sake. That way students can balance jobs and school and sports and home life and stiff have some time for themselves. We should not be spending 10-12+ hours a day on school work/homework as well as get the recommended 8 hours of sleep, and try and work a job, or babysit younger siblings, and do sports or extracurriculars, and still have time for ourselves. We are teenagers, and we are still learning and trying to live our lives as well.
