Caleb Wen started this petition to USD 266 Board of Education

Imagine not getting paid for essentially a second job, that you have to do directly coming home from your other job. Sounds awful, right?

Well that’s what happens to millions of students every day. We don’t get paid for essentially overtime, and are given it whether we like it or not.  This is considered free child labor, and slavery. It’s illegal, and doesn’t give kids any free time. Studies show that teens who do homework, do worse on standardized tests. Students stay up late, causing sleep deprivation. 

Students who have homework are more likely to experience depression, and eventually suicide.  Sometimes it’ll even wrap into the weekends, defeating the entire purpose of a weekend. If you can’t sleep at school, then why should you do homework at home.

Here’s a “fun” fact. The person who came up with homework invented it as a punishment for students who misbehaved. Parents don’t get free time either, because they’re up until stupid thirty, helping their kid with homework. Teachers give the excuse “You’ve got study hall to do it, that’s plenty of time.” Oh yeah, because I can do 60 minutes of homework in thirty minutes.

Call is blasphemy, scandalous, or just plain rude, but I’ll take this petition as far as I need to, Maize USD 266.
