Ben King started this petition to School Board Members

I personally believe that students receive too much homework at the high school level. I personally have multiple hours of homework on top of marching band. I also understand that many students at the HSE schools have extra-curricular activities. Homework on top of these things forces students to got to sleep later and be continually stressed about schoolwork and grades. I also understand that certain teach must give a certain amount of homework, especially in AP classes, but if most teacher were to simply cut down their homework by 25% many students would be relieved of stress and have better grades for their future. Mental health will also increase with less homework because students will be able to relax every now and then without the load of school on top of them. Us as human beings need time to relax and clear our minds. I feel that weekends are a good time for this, but with the added homework it just becomes more stressful. I know that for me I only have Sundays to work on homework because during the marching season Saturdays are taken up. This means I have barely any time to clear my head before school starts again on Monday. Students should be able to also have fun outside of school. Students can achieve this by doing sports, hanging out with friends, or just relaxing. I believe homework should be cut down for these following reasons and hope you agree.
