Limit the Homework in All Classes

This petition had 371 supporters

Homework is scientifically proven useless and counterproductive so why assign so much to your students? We're trying to reach out to all the teachers everywhere and tell them that we are in desperate need for less homework. No, we are not asking you to completely stop giving homework to your students (despite the fact that homework doesn't help a student at all) but we are asking that you limit the homework you assign. Students who have five classes with different teachers are shown to spend 3.5 hours on homework each day which results in 17.5 hours of homework each week. The number obviously grows larger when we have 8 classes per day, in total throughout the week. The excessive homework is stressing students out, many students spend nights staying up until the early hours of the morning just to finish YOUR homework. Then those students go to your class tired and inattentive which results in the students not knowing the class material. The students go home with large amounts of homework in which they do not understand and then the cycle continues.

Please, we're only trying to save our grades and our futures. Sign this petition if you want to see the future change for future students in Edison Computech Middle school and potentially students all across the nation. A single, small signature can make a difference to a big problem.
