Worst Things About Homework

The Top Ten
1 It takes up all of your free time

So many people have covered my thoughts, like a gazillion times so I'll do something different.

Picture yourself as Spongebob Squarepants, serving Homework Flavoured Krabby Patties (Homework Patties) by doing the homework, for your teachers (customers). For no pay, of course, but Mr Krabs doesn't pay Spongebob, Spongebob pays Mr Krabs to work and you're giving up your time, happiness, extracurricular activities to give your teachers those Homework Patties!

"Not ALL of your free time, but some if it."

For some of us it DOES takes up all of our free time. The older you are, the harder your classes are, and some of those classes has A LOT of homework.

2 It's too difficult
3 It has nothing to do with what you've just been taught in class
4 Too much homework

During my spring break I had to read 7 chapters (yes, you read that right, 7 CHAPTERS! ), edit a few web pages, and do some Photoshop. While I don't mind the later 2, the 7 chapters took me FOREVER to read!

Per night is around 1 page of math science English and random $### yove never heard off. If you get the thing you've never heard of wrong, detention

I hate homework it is stupid and boring it makes me a slave!

5 Waste of time

If It weren't for the load pile of homework and how I also have to study for a social studies exam, I could've already eaten, bathed, and would probably be doing something more relaxing to kick all the stress from school.

I've wasted hours doing homework mainly because I don't do it at school. I would rather talk with friends instead of do work at school so I guess this is my punishment.

I literally go to the homework help page and press Huntington it gives me the answer because either way, I wounding be learning anything.

6 Teachers ask for it too early
7 Not enough time with family/friends

Picture this: Dad came from work, he wants to spend time with his son. Son: "Dad can't, you know why? I gotta do my homework.

Last semester I was invited to dinner at my uncles' house to spend time with my aunt and grandma who was visiting from CA, but I couldn't go because I had SO MUCH HOMEWORK! >:(

8 It's boring

It depends on the assignment. I once had to type a 10 page essay (yes, you read that right) on a history topic and that was very boring and another time I had to type an essay that connects my life to psychology in a certain way and that was very interesting.

YES! I use only 1 hour on my homework, and you get very bored.

9 Gotta do it during weekends

I have to study for a science test, study for a German test and write a Portuguese article of opinion (I am Brazilian). Even though it's not difficult at all, it's annoying that I have to waste my weekend doing school work. I am so used to it that Sunday for me now essentially means "School assignment day".

Weekends are for taking your minds off school, not for doing stressful work from school.

10 Kills trees

Teacher: we need to save trees!
And what is homework done on? Paper of course and where does paper come from? A TREE!

Don't worry peeps I will get rid of homework by writing an essay

The Contenders
11 Work at school all day, come home for more
12 Doesn't teach you anything

This is the #2 thing I hate about homework. Today was our first day of homework (my teacher told us that before recess) when I walked out of the classroom I already made plans to destroy it! like throwing it an electric fence and burning it with a flamethrower. when I got home I did my stupid homework and I learned absolutely NOTHING! the only thing I learned is...wow, I can't remember a single thing I learned while doing homework (most of it was just filler. I'm in 5th grade by the way) My mind was completely blank I KNEW I SHOULD'VE BURNED IT! and don't get me started on the place value sheet I have to do!

13 Won't let you sleep

One of my classes gives so many homework assignments and pointless essays that staying up until 2am every college night is becoming the norm for me. Everyone else seems just as sleep deprived, yet the teacher wonders why half the class is failing.

Yes, I know that their purpose for giving us homework is to make us hardworking but they should know that lack of sleep is dangerous too.

It steals sleep from my sister. She is now constantly sleep deprived because of it.

14 Gotta do it over summer

I can make it work over the normal school year, but after finals, the last thing I want to worry about is next year's tests...

15 Gotta do it on your birthday

I won't let homework steal my birthdays, even if I get into trouble. I want to remember that I had fun on my birthdays before I enter my grave, not be traumatized because Homework stole it all. Just don't let homework steal your birthday.

16 It has caused teenage suicides
17 Family feuds
18 It's really stressful
19 You don't get to play fortnite or fnaf
20 It causes depression because of its impact on your grades

Sadly they make it out like everything's riding on a few letters on a piece of paper. A lot of this needs to change - some of the obsession over grades could at least be replaced with teaching students other skills that will ensure them success in the workplace.

I do very hard homework, I fail some stuff and pass some, I get Bs and Cs as my final grades, and my Asian mom gets disappointed in me for it. Need I say more?

21 It doesn't let you have fun
22 Doing it

No one wants to waste their time doing crap they already can figure out with common sense. Homework applied to everyday life is useless. If you actually needed most of the stuff taught in schools then everyone's parents would know how to do it yet none of them do. They can't help you with calculus because they've never had to use it. When will you use geometry at the grocery store? Are you ever going to need to find the angles of a cereal box at Wal Mart?
