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.
That should be enough to convince schools to ban homework, period. But they have their reasons too. One of which is so they “don’t forget”. Yeah I can’t really make a case against that however going through the strenuous ordeal of all this outweighs the benefits. You load them with too much homework 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 memory gains.
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.
Come on teachers. If you want to give us homework, give us something that is fun or lets us be creative and incorporate our own skills and passion into it. I may sound like a cliché, but you’re giving us depression here, jeez just bring it down a notch.
