Homework has been around for as long as we can remember. There are plus sides of homework, for example extra practice for students who are falling behind. Most students know they can receive the extra help by personally consulting with a teacher or family member. For everyone else, homework is just a burden. Homework causes extra stress to be added onto already unstable students. Homework causes students to become sleep deprived when there is a lot of homework from multiple teachers. Homework is also unnecessary because, students already have to sit still and pay attention to multiple lectures on different subjects for 6 to 8 hours a day. Doing away with homework will relieve stress upon students, offer more time for students to study in their own way, and overall improve students perspective of the education system.
