So, who’s bright idea was it to give students homework, huh? Well, according to some sources that would be Roberto Nevilis. Everyone knows that homework is the main source of stress for students, and that stress is very unhealthy, so why do teachers still give out homework? Homework should not be a requirement for schools. There is no good reason to make teenagers so stressed that they would want to drop out at the thought of homework.
Home work should not be a grade at schools because while at school, students do as much work as given in their classes. If they try hard and finish their work in class, they should be done with that subject for the day. Students give their time to teachers during the day, so after school said students should be able to enjoy their time stress-free.
Another reason that homework should not be allowed is because homework stresses out students more than almost anything else. Students nowadays are getting so stressed that they will sometimes cry themselves to sleep at night in fear that they aren’t good enough to lead a successful life. “When it came to stress, more than 70 percent of students said they were “often or always stressed over schoolwork,” with 56 percent listing homework as a primary stressor. Less than 1 percent of the students said homework was not a stressor.” Being a teenager is already stressful enough with choosing their entire life path within a span of two years, why add on to that stress by giving them homework to worry about. Some would argue that they need time to get all the material in, but that is not worth risking the health of students who are stressing themselves so badly over homework.
So in conclusion, homework should not be a mandatory thing in schools because it is unfair and bad for the student’s health. Homework was an idea in 1901. One that should not have become a reality.
