Make homework optional for students in the UK

Multiple studies have found that most students are getting too many extra assignments, leading to sleep deprivation, unhealthy levels of stress, as well as related health problems. Less than 1 percent of the students said homework was not a stressor. The researchers asked students whether they experienced physical symptoms of stress, such as headaches, exhaustion, sleep deprivation, weight loss, and stomach problems. homework should be banned from schools because students are made to do it when they are tired, however, this would be extremely damaging to students who want to do well or who can deal with the amount of work, so for this we would say that you just need to have your parents/guardian/teacher sign a form. ... Another reason why I believe homework should be banned is that it takes away time or can completely eliminate time for leisure activities, other commitments, or hobbies.
