Reduce Amount of Homework in KatyISD

This petition had 7,701 supporters

We (the students of KatyISD and other school districts) believe the amount of homework we receive every night is outrageous. Studies show giving massive amounts of homework each night have more negative effects than positive effects. 

Homework itself is not a bad thing. In fact, about an hour of homework a night can be very beneficial to a student, but when a student must stay up until 2:00AM every morning finishing English homework, there is a problem. Many resources have stated that having too much homework takes away much needed rest, builds stress, and cuts into time that could be spent with friends and family. Studies have also shown the amount of homework being given has exponentially grown over the past few decades. Once again: we are not asking for NO homework or studying, but we ARE asking for a regulation of some sort on the amount of homework a student may receive.

Please take what has been said and take it into consideration. Students are more stressed than ever and the amount of homework a student receives every day needs to decrease.
