Ban Homework in Schools

Kids, especially high school kids, are given way too much homework. Especially with now needing to have a job, do chores, spend time with family and needing to get AT LEAST 8 hours of sleep. Doing all of this is impossible. Homework tends to make students feel buried and overwhelmed, with everything else going on in their lives and other responsibilities. For example, at school I’d say homework ranges anywhere from 1 hour to 3 hours. Every single student I have met with says it doesn’t benefit them, and I being a student, can agree with that statement. It adds stress and worry. Most students do not do their homework and it lowers their grades and GPA’s, but if homework were not a factor, grades would be astounding and more students would be passing and getting into their dream college or being able to make honor-roll. School days are long enough, 7-8 hours, which is enough time taken out of the day to learn. I petition this, speaking for all of the kids in America, that homework must be stopped.
