For such a long time, homework is necessary for students, no one has doubted about its importance or its functions. However, some countries have set a limit on the amount of homework recently, which alarmed lots of educators, students, and parents that, if homework should totally abolished, or there should be a limit amount of it.
Undoubtedly, homework does have its functions, or it wouldn't be exited. However, the amount and criteria for homework that is given by the teachers is not good enough and it is is overwhelmed for students. In this essay, I am going to analysis the drawbacks of homework to parents, teachers and students.
Firstly, for students, homework are time- consuming and add their stress. 8hours a day, 5 days a week, students have to go to school for such a long time, and they basically don’t have their private time at all if teachers give them loads of homework. Ridiculously enough, the schools and teachers love to emphasize “all-rounded development”. But where else can students squeeze their time for extracurricular activities and develop their interests if teachers just give them lots of homework?
Plus, homework adds students’ stress. It is not surprising that students care about their homework because it is part of their examination’s scores. So when teachers claimed that” giving out homework can reduce students’s stress on examination”. You probably know it is misleading you. Because they are just adding your stress by telling you how important your homework is and how you should value it, and this kind of stress is overwhelmed as some students commit suicide because of school stress. Therefore, it is obviously that homework is not a good thing as it just makes students more stressful.
