Steve Williams started this petition to SD 308 School Board

The work load put on students has become out of hand. Homework is one of the main factors in this workload. The accumulated work throughout the day can be crushing for students. What this petitions goals are:

  • Reduce overall homework given
  • School work should remain school work, busy work shouldn’t be assigned
  • Studying doesn’t count as homework, but there should be more in class study time
  • There should be more focus on teaching students proper time management and life balancing skills

Students today are lacking in life balancing skills, such as managing homework time and relaxation. Many students put too much pressure on themselves over school work, and often can’t find time to enjoy themselves, which is detrimental to mental health.
