Homework seems more like a neverending battle of stress, anxiety and detention as you attempt to pull yourself together to get that stupid, tedious task out of the way. It’s actually affecting student’s health and ironically their grades.
“Don’t forget kids”
The intro should honestly be enough to convince schools to ban homework, period. But they have their reasons too. One of which is so they “don’t forget”. This is a valid point and practically the sole reason homework exists, however going through the strenuous ordeal of doing buttloads of it outweighs the benefits.
You load them with too much homework to a point where that stress, which leads to a shrink in a certain part of the brain, consumes the thoughts to an extent where memory loss is more likely than remembering the topic. You’re overwhelming them, dude.
Your homework makes us smart in the wrong ways
It also ignites a rage within the student to lash at you, either aggressively with verbal or physical attacks, or assertively by outsmarting you with authorities or some rather plausible excuses. To back up this point, it is proven that the stricter the teacher, the more deceptive a student becomes to avoid consequences. Here’s some facts.
I always used to struggle doing homework in time because I just couldn’t give a single damn about it. The only homework I cared about back then was my Sociology, English, Computing and Graphics. Everything else was done the lesson before it was due. Looking back on it I just feel like I was more bent on doing everything else and coming up with a good enough lie if I missed it.
It’s not that hard man
Come on teachers, if you want to give them homework, give them something that is fun or lets them be creative and incorporate our own skills. I may sound like a cliché, but you’re literally giving 12 year olds depression here, just bring it down a notch.
