Stop Homework!!!

I want to stop homework for a lot of reasons.  1. A lot of people have after school activities and I know that some people and I finish very late and it's hard to manage homework on top of the activities. When you apply to a college they look at what things you do other than school to make sure you don't just do academic stuff. Doing sports exercises you!  Doing after school activities is really important!  2. Sleep is very important to your health and if you're staying up past the time you're supposed to go to sleep it knocks off your sleep schedule and the number of hours you are supposed to get.  3. This would also benefit teachers because it would mean less to grade. Say you had 24 students in all of your classes and you had 5 classes, that would be 120 students to grade. Who wants to do that?!   4. Homework is what mostly makes people hate school. We should be able to have enough time to complete things in school so we can enjoy the rest of our day doing our activities, hanging out with friends, and anything we want to do.  According to a study by Stanford University, 56 percent of students considered homework a primary source of stress. Too much homework can result in a lack of sleep, headaches, exhaustion and weight loss. Excessive homework can also result in poor eating habits, with families choosing fast food as a faster alternative. Too much homework can cause students to experience stress, anxiety, depression, physical ailments, and even cause lower test scores
