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!

Ikr, and when you swear about it, you get detention!
Me: Finally, I can go home to listen to (insert album or song here)!
Teacher: Well, you have to do these 10 pages of Maths exercises for tomorrow.
Me: Oh, SCREW YOU!
Teacher: What did you just say?
DETENTION! Go to the headmaster's office, NOW!

We only want homework to be either banned or at least reduced!
But instead of banning or reducing homework, the education system has only made it worse, by assigning twice as much homework or even more!

"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 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.

3 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! >:(

4 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.

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.

Every weekday, I have to wake up, do my homework all day (with breaks for lunch and dinner and showers,) then by the time I'm done with some of it, I have to go to bed immediately!

Then the next day I do it all over again.

6 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.

Never really had that. My teachers don't give me so much homework that I can't sleep.

7 Work at school all day, come home for more

This stress me out

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 You don’t have time to be with loved ones
10 It's too difficult
The Contenders
11 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!

I hate homework it is too much stress it wears me out.

12 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!

Teachers need to understand!

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

13 Doesn't teach you anything

Homework is more stupid than daylight savings. Imagine this: You come home after a long boring day of school and all you wan't to do is relax for like an hour. Go on YouTube for like 2 hours go outside and play for an hour and a half but instead get 3 to 5 hours of this piece of garbage known as homework. Not just homework though. Mostly school in general. Kids get stressed all weekend because of worries of schoolwork and it just disgusts me how some kids have to go through this kind of stuff. Like being punished for no reason.

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!

You're right. I sit and press the homework help button and then press hunt and answer over and over. The only thing I have learned is how to use a computer mouse

I don't need to know that stuff and how do I use them in real life? I would want to know real life stuff not crap!

14 It has nothing to do with what you've just been taught in class
15 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...

16 Doing homework about a new topic that you haven't even started

How are you supposed to know what to do when your TEACHER hasn't TAUGHT you what to do? That is their job and that is what they get PAID to do

17 It has caused teenage suicides
18 Teachers ask for it too early
19 Family feuds
20 It's really stressful

Homework is evil!
Homework can kill you!
Say no to homework!

21 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?

22 How people hate it
23 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?

24 Was invented as a punishment

Yep, you got that right

25 It doesn't let you have fun
