Ban IXL from Manassas Park City School

This petition had 156 supporters

IXL is a work website which you answer questions on and get points. Students at Manassas Park Middle School do IXL every week. Sometimes it can be very stressful. I’ve heard stories from fellow classmates of them stressing out and crying because it was too hard for them to handle. One teacher quoted, “This is the amount of work you do in college.” What I say to that is incorrect because even though college gives a lot of work, this isn’t college and we’re still young scholars. Teachers think they are preparing us for the real world but I think that is a bunch of lies. Neighboring counties like Prince William County has an ordinance saying that teachers must only give up to 15 minutes of homework. School is a place to learn. Home is a place to relax. This shouldn’t mix up with our everyday lives. I think now it’s a time for a change and we need to do something about this and put a stop to this cruelty.
