Reasons Why Homework Should Be Banned

The Top Ten
It eats up all our free time

There needs to be a balance between work time and free time. I had to work all afternoon on ten pages. That may seem quick, right? Wrong. One page was a bunch of textbook activities (nineteen of them to be specific), and usually, said textbook activities take lots of time (at least in two of my classes). I think I spent about four and a half hours trying to finish that... and I wasn't even confused, nor was I procrastinating. It was just an unreasonable overload of homework.

Fun fact: The one who founded homework, Roberto Nevelis, used homework as a punishment for students. Now, schools use it as a normal thing and it’s just pure evil.

I don't agree because it helps us learn more and makes us more sturdy in a subject. It usually only takes 10 to 20 minutes for most worksheets.

If you have plans with friends you will have to cancel them over evil homework!

It's so boring

I know, some things we have to do aren't fun, but come on. We already have school to help us learn AND practice, so why bother giving us homework?

And my teacher somehow thinks its fun.

Yeah it's so hard AND its boring

Homework is sometimes fun

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

THANK YOU! Someone said it! There really isn't any point in homework if you already spend so much time at school.

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

I agree with everything on this list.

Ug homework is so dumb it just eats up all your free time

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.

Right now, I still have assignments that were really hard that it makes my mom going to help me. These assignments were quizzes since I was done reading the stories.

Homework makes me sick. Literally, I get so stressed out I feel really bad. once I actually threw up because I hadn't finished my homework accidentally.

I am also a student I also got stressed after
8 hour school and after that homework for 5 hours

No time to spend time with family

Family time is important too, and CLEARLY, school doesn't get that.

It gives you know time to spend with your famillies that you were gifted with

So true my mom just comes and yells at me for not doing it

Several months ago my relatives from CA were visiting us:

Them: (to me) do you want to come over to our house for dinner?
Me: I can't I have homework :(

You've been at school all day, home should be a place where you get to take a break and not have to worry about school.

You know, I really like homework. But I understand that people just hate it because just a lot of time is wasted or that people just are lazy. I think we should understand that teachers aren't being cruel, they're want us to learn because, after all, we are paying fees. Plus, we need learning to be able to live a good life. Also, we have breaks at school as well!

The point of weekends and dismissal from school is to let students take a breather, not add more weight to their stress.

The last thing I want to do when I get back home is homework.

Yes I want to come home and not be yell at for homework

You're having fun and your parents say "HAVE YOU DONE YOUR HOMEWORK?!"

This is probably what causes kids to not do their homework.

That is just annoying in every way, shape and form.

That drives me up the wall

This always happens

School doesn't understand we have lives outside of school, too

They don't. They really don't. Some of us are part of sports teams and can't have time to work on half the stuff given to us. Some of us need to take care of our siblings because our parents are going out. Seriously, let us have time to work on things outside of school too.

I'll get a massive project/worksheet on Wednesday due Thursday. And...

I have Drama Kids on Wednesday. Screw me!

Schools need to know that we would like to do the things we want sometimes.

My teacher doesn't understand that at all

The questions are hard

I always have headaches when I do hard questions.

Depends on how smart you are.


m hm

Adults don't understand the stress

When my mom is at work and my dad is working I don't have any one to help

"Deal with it" my mom says.

My mom doesn’t understand how hard my homework is

Every time my mom just says you better get at less C not that bad right wrong she saids I will get my phone taken away if I don't ;-;

The Contenders
It brings the hell of school to your house

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

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

Happy to not do it

Ughh I'm cringing thinking about it now.

We don't have enough time to sleep, which probably makes our grade lower in the long run.

And some of us get even LESS sleep thanks to all the stress homework gives us which just adds on even more problems.

My grades are just always ass

The stuff in homework is the stuff you learn at school

Most of the stuff we learn in school we wont use

Math is for boring places like school

Same exact thing

It causes procrastination

I try not to procrastinate, but because homework is so boring and stressful, I always procrastinate as a result. Thanks a lot, school...

Every time I have homework to do, that's what happens. I'm so bored and I'm wishing that I was doing something else so it causes me to procrastinate and it takes 2 more hours to finish it.

Yeah. Like my total amount of homework should take like 3-4 hours, but I procrastinate and it takes me at least 5-6 hours instead. And yes. I am procrastinating while having to do my homework now. LOL.

I procrastinate every day! 1

It has caused suicides

How does homework cause people to commit suicide? It's sad that visitors here make fun of it. No offense, but if homework drives you to suicide you are seriously hypersensitive. Sometimes we need to do things in life that we don't like. These people who want to commit suicide need help I swear.

Suicide is going to be the best thing that will happen to me

I told my parents the first time. The second time they found out.

Some times I just want to kill my self just bc of homework

You don't really learn anything

Homework is more about memorization than actual learning. you do that in class

I'm way smarter then dum school

I really agree with that.

It stops us from going outside and getting active.

We put on weight without getting active.

do it quik then


It's pointless

Userguy44 sorry, but I disagree!

People have lives

Exactly! We already had 6-8 hours at school! We have better things to do than memorize mindless facts.

I totally agree because I can’t play roblox adopt me

Life is short. homework makes it even shorter.

We spend enough time in school doing work we shouldn't have to take it home with us


#when yr late 4 shkool


Tests have shown it affects your health in a negative way

You are all right homework is boring

It isn't fun

Not everything in life is fun.

We have to learn at school not at home

Tell me about it

It's like school follows you around 24/7... which it does.

"we have to play

Life should be enjoyed


then do homwerk wuike

It makes you tired.

I strongly agree

Probably one of the reasons why I’m always tired.
