Reasons Summer Homework Should Be Banned

School's out summer's in, but not for the kids. We are getting overloaded with summer homework every year and not one child took a break from it. Here are some reasons school should not assign summer homework.

The Top Ten

1 It ruins summer

I didn't know where to put this so I'll put it here

For our school, in the summer before sixth grade, you have to read a book, do a report on it, and turn it in by the second week

Dear Arceus, so much writing!

Homework was bad enough but summer homework is way worse. - HoldenFanatic

This is the reason the school system in my country is failing - Jordansalesguy2392

What country are you in exactly? I live in America and the only summer homework I get is summer reading.

2 We don't need homework during the summer

Why doesn't teachers give kids a guide to help us learn for the next grade - Jordansalesguy2392

3 It's only there to bore kids

Spent my whole vacation doing homework, not having a Holiday

It's been one month and still haven't finish my homework - Jordansalesguy2392

4 It has no effect on grades

Here in Puerto Rico we don't have summer homework, I think!

In Macedonia too no summer work

Uh yes it does?

5 It's supposed to be summer BREAK

It is called a VACATION for a damn good reason; so kids can be free from work, not overloaded in it.

6 We can’t go on vacation because of it

My sister has classes this summer (2018) and has TONS of homework. It's mid-July, school starts in late August, and our family STILL hasn't gone anywhere on vacation because of it >:(

My sister's summer classes RUINED my summer in 2016 >:(

7 It is boring
8 It reminds us of school
9 It takes up the time that could be used to spend with family and/or friends.

It also takes up the time that’s could be used to go on vacations

10 We deserve a break

We do we deserve a break from school and summer home work wouldn't be what I have in mind.

The Contenders

11 It’s pointless
12 Summer is all about having fun and not doing any school work

When it's summer break I stay inside playing video games, playing outside in the summer and spring is boring and hot, playing outside in the winter and fall is fun

"Summer vacation is the perfect time to go travel places, play sports, go outside flying kites, going to the beach, and spend quality time with your friends and family."

13 It's supposed to be a break, not do more work.

In the summer you can spend some quality time with friends and family, or what you like doing in your spare time.But if you do more work,it just leads to more stress and work.

14 Some students have summer jobs

During the summer, I have a part-time job, and with that it makes me incredibly busy. With a multitude of summer homework, it is very time consuming and takes up the large majority of the summer. Due to this, it means there is almost no time to spend with family, which is what summer break is supposed to be about.

My sister had to juggle between a part time job and homework this past summer.

This=my sister

15 The packet can be 100+ pages long
16 We want to read our own books, not school books
17 It wastes your entire summer vacation
