Why Teachers Shouldn’t Give too much Homework


Salvador Tamayo-Iniguez (9th), Reporter

If you were to ask almost any kid about homework the majority of their responses would be they don’t like it because it uses their time or because they already do work at school why should they do more at home. But there are also kids who like homework because it lets them learn more of a topic but even kids who like homework know when it’s too much. A teacher should not give out too much homework because most students have more than 1 teacher which can gather up. And most kids have chores at home and have to leave work from school for later which will make students tired because they work all day at school then some more at home then they have to do work from school at home.


Studies have also shown that too much homework can be very unhealthy, making students feel stressed and burnt out. Most teachers give about 1-2 pages of homework which may not seem like a lot but when you add them up it can easily overwhelm a student. And most kids stay after school to do some sort of practice like basketball practice and by the time they are done they are tired they eat first at home then do their homework which can even make them stay up late to do it.
