Nowadays, most of the students complain how stressed they are with school. Most schools run for around half the time a student is awake for under a healthy amount of sleep. Homework for secondary schools be several hours in one day, requiring students to have little free time or even have to stay up late in order to complete their homework. The weekends sound like the perfect time for students to be able to relax, getting 2 whole days off, however, having homework assigned on Friday to be completed over the weekend makes it so students have to spend their only free time working, making it seem like an endless cycle of the education system being forced down their throat. 

Homework does play a big part in how students do on tests and how well they perform in school, however, so does stress and lack of sleep. Too much homework definitely is not a good thing.

A no homework policy on Fridays would allow some time for students to relax and do whatever they want without having the stress of needing to do their homework.
