2 We already go to school for 5 days a week, 6-8 hours a day, and 12-15 years

If that isn't enough for teachers to teach their lessons then what is

Homework during 12-15 years of school equals at around 2-3 years of homework in total. - LeRoiDesSapins


3 It causes high stress levels

Homework is crazy stressful, especially when your working on an average of 6 hours of sleep in middle school. Just today my teacher math teacher bothered the dickens out of me. Half my class didn't do the homework worksheet on lined paper, and instead on the worksheet itself. We have to copy them all over and it's 24 long problems. Then 17 classwork problems on the computer, which I didn't even start because I'm still copying problems I solved last night. (Finished at 1 am before getting up at 6 am for school) Then our homework is 14 more problems. In addition, we have a test in a couple days, and a possibility of school being canceled tomorrow due to a snowstorm. In that case, my teacher plans on putting more work on our class web page. That's just math.
Reading class is another story: 3 pages on 1 book chapter. Social studies is a test. The list doesn't end with our language and instrumental classes as well.

It's so stressful. - LeRoiDesSapins

Yes it does

You are so right

The Contenders

11 It brings the hell of school to your house

MORE hell is brought to my house (my house is already hell :P)

That's right

I have homework and I do so of my homework on this ridiculous website named Dreambox, and I am in 3rd grade and I'm litterally learning stuff that are from 4TH GRADE, 5TH GRADE, 6TH GRADE, and even one of 7TH. I think I'm a little too smart. Also there is this lesson on it that makes m eclassify shapes and it says I got it wrong for attribute relationships. I always got that every time. Ad I searched it up on the internet so I can firgure out what it is, but it wasnt there. So dreambox gets you wrong on this lesson for failing some stuid math thing that doesent even EXIST

12 Adults don't understand the stress
13 School doesn't understand we have lives outside of school, too

My teacher doesn't understand that at all

14 It's pointless

Agreed. - LeRoiDesSapins

15 It wastes a teacher's time
16 The teachers become bossy
17 It isn't fun

Not everything in life is fun.

18 We cant spend time with our family because we have either homework or projects
19 Homework distracts from studying for tests and exams

This is so true. - LeRoiDesSapins
