LESS HOMEWORK FOR SCHOOLS! Is it even necessary?

Introduction

Homework obviously stresses out students. It also is too time consuming, and causes family stress.

STRESS

Homework might stress out students, especially younger students.

Homework is either too hard or they have not learned the subject fully.

CNN’s article written by Kelly Wallace, she says, “Giving a student too much homework can overwhelm and also affect them physically.”
In the earlier ages kids get more homework than they are supposed to.

Time Consuming

Homework could take valuable time from students, especially younger students.

It is important for younger kids to be active and make friends.

This chart shows that homework has very great time amounts.
“They report the no-homework policy has taken the stress out of their afternoons and evenings. In addition, it's been easier for their children to participate in after-school activities” - Marian Wilde

This quote shows that homework takes time away from kids to do hobbies and activities they like.

Some people could argue that.......

The opposing side could argue that homework can help cement the concepts learned in school, can show students to work independently, and if the students do not understand parents can help.

They think that because the students had already done the concept in school and homework can help students learn to do homework independently .

FAMILY STRESS

People who think that homework helps are wrong because homework causes family problems because the parents might have not learned the subject and will be frustrated and make the kids stressed.

"And all those extra assignments may lead to family stress, especially when parents with limited education aren’t confident in their ability to help kids with the work" (healthline.com).

Conclusion

Obviously there are many consequences, such as, stress, the amount of time homework takes, and family problems. Therefore less amounts of homework should be given in school.
