Michael A. started this petition to School board Miami-Dade County Public Schools

        Students across Miami-Dade County, such as I, have been struggling to maintain. Struggling to maintain our academic grades. Struggling to maintain our social lives. Struggling to maintain our mental health. And struggling to maintain ourselves. The main reason for these struggles is the lack of time that students have to use for human necessities. These necessities include 6-8 hours of sleep, a partner in which they are able to spend time with and maintain a relationship with, a minimum 30 minutes for them to do their hobbies that help with their mental health, and lastly, A time for them to be at peace and to be able to think about their lives outside of school. The lack of time that these students have may contribute to a number of things. But 1 thing that most students would testify as the problem, would be the absurd amount of schoolwork that students are obligated to complete. This schoolwork (homework) takes hours off of a students time that they could use to fulfill the human necessities. This creates a hefty amount of stress and frustration for students. Being constantly stressed and unhappy can not be good for the health of these students. So in reality, not only does this schoolwork waste some of these students time, It is also taking time off of their lives as their mental health or physical health deteriorate from the stress. A reduction of this schoolwork, even if minor, would mean a great deal to these students and outcomes for the future. The Miami-Dade Public Schools logo says, “Giving our students the world” but how about they give the students what they actually need, a break.
