Our problem is we as students are assigned too much homework and it is affecting our mental and physical health. When we are assigned so much homework it means we aren’t getting any free time, and are overstimulated. It is affecting students all over the nation, and even the world. While some homework may be beneficial, too much can have very negative affects on students and even teachers. When students feel like there is too much work assigned, some will just not do it or have their parents do it for them. This not beneficial for teachers, students or parents. 
 

The way we can fix this conundrum we are faced with is to communicate with the people who have the power to change it. If the NSBA (National School Board Association) were to communicate with the principals of our school districts and have them hold a professional development class, they would be able to integrate it into our schools. If they compromise with the teachers for a fair amount of homework, it will benefit our mental and physical health, as well as our education.
 

In summary, homework can lead to fatigue due to staying up late to complete at it, weight loss, headaches, poor eating habits, and can cause them to spend more time working on it than working on having healthy relationships with friends and family leading to isolation, or even depression. When homework isn’t turned in, or completed correctly, it leads to grades slipping and more homework. Another con is that a lot of the time students will not understand the concept, so when they try to do homework they are confused and this can lead to doing it wrong and more bad grades. They have enough stress just day to day, so when homework is added to the equation it can reach a breaking point. What we need to do is stop putting unnecessary stress on students and stop assigning so much homework.
