Kids. Hate. Homework. Some enjoy it, but only 17% of students actually like it. (Look it up) I definitely don’t like it. For me it’s just a waste of time when I would rather be doing something else.  Most kids don’t even have time to do it because they have sports, family, or whatever the reason. I usually get it all done on the bus, but I would much rather be talking to my friends then sitting there and doing work I’ve been doing for the last seven hours.  That’s not all, but kids do enough work already in school. To go to school for seven hours straight and needing to come home and do more work is dumb. Livescience.com states: “Too Much Homework Is Bad for Kids. Piling on the homework doesn’t help kids do better in school. In fact, it can lower their test scores. … Inundating children with hours of homework each night is detrimental, the research suggests, while an hour or two per week usually doesn’t impact test scores one way or the other.” Homework is also stressful too. If you have a lot of homework but didn’t have time to do it, your probably going to be stressed the next day about the punishments your teacher might give you.  Not only that, but homework could effect your sleep too. Some kids wait till the last minute to do’s their homework or they don’t get it done at all. If you have way too much homework you could be doing it till eleven or twelve at night, and if you have to get up at 6:00 AM that’s not going to get you very much sleep. That will effect your grade if your too tired to work. That’s all I got to say about kids getting homework.

    I agree, but I also disagree at the same time. Let’s start off with my disagreement. Kids should be given homework to expand their minds. You need to remember stuff, study, and usually do homework to expand their mind and do well on assessments and quizzes and tests. Oh, and not to mention the PSSA! Anyways, on to my agreement! The point is, everyone knows that kids play games at home, especially Fortnite. Well sometimes I play games before I do my homework, also keep in mind, some parent’s set times so that you have to get off the computer and do your homework. Usually before you go to bed. Anyways’s, I believe there should be half as much homework as we usually do.
