Imagine. Just imagine. A chunk of homework from today stacked up on your desk. A two-foot pile of paper gone to waste, only to “reteach” what you have learned today in school, which is already seven hours of hard learning, working, and participating. Tired and desperate for just a second to get some fresh air, you glance at your watch. It’s eleven at night and you must finish every paper before school starts, or else your teacher will mark your grades down. Not only did you not eat dinner or have a few minutes to bond with your family today, but also, you haven’t had enough rest to refresh you for the next day as you prepare to learn.
Believe it or not, this is the everyday life of many tortured children across the globe, including me. If you are reading this and you are currently a student, you have to admit that you have had this bad moment once or twice. The fact that homework makes children and teenagers stressed, pressured, and bored is just pointless and wastes time. That is why I’m here to say that homework should be banned for the greater good of many people, such as teachers, parents, and most importantly, the millions of millions of kids being forced to do this horrible task.
When a teacher always calls out that word terrifying word “homework”, moans and groans fill the classroom. Students start to slouch and lie their heads back, as teachers start to feel guilty for what they have done. You might say that homework will help teens and children to drill in the knowledge they’ve learned in school today, and help these kids learn some study habits. But let’s face it. The truth is that no student in any school loves homework. They have already spent their time in school focusing and learning for nothing, since homework is already there to teach it again. It makes these students from the age of six years old to stay up late completing it, causing them to not get enough rest, focus, as well as energy for the next day. At school, they will not concentrate the way teachers will expect them to. Ben Robinson, a father of one of the students at a local school in California states: “Everyday, after school, I will never be able to see my son. Damon’s too tired to even talk and socialize with any of his family members. Most of the time, he’ll be locked up in his room for more than 4 hours doing his school work. When I keep insisting him to eat his dinner, or just a snack, Damon will decline it and go back to his room which now has transformed into a workload prison.” As children and teenagers have been given homework for the night, they will miss out on so many amazing moments you can have after school. Besides bonding with your entire family and friends, you can also properly eat as well as have a good nights rest. In reality, students all around us have some hate in their heart for homework.
Another reason why I strongly agree that homework should be banned is because it wastes many different things. These include time, tress, and the hours...
