Declaration
of Independence

I, Nadia Souada, on this 9th day of October 2012, declare my Independence from homework for all concerned persons to read.
It is necessary for a person to want to get rid of a force controlling them. Also, it is commonly known that with growing up, homework should be expected in order to receive a full education. This meaning, every child for twelve years is supposed to make school a priority, and then get an occupation once they are an adult. While I accept this, every student should have the right to pursue other aptitudes which they will use late in life as a career. That being said, homework has caused a great problem in my day to day life.

My wanting to rid my life of homework truly is justified. For example, I try immensely hard to maintain focus and good grades in school during the day; therefore I don’t think it’s necessary to have to practice lessons again at home. Those who feel the need to practice more at home can do so without getting a grade for it because it will pay off when we take tests on the lessons. The original Declaration of Independence states I have a right to “Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness” as an American citizen. Therefore, I should also have the right to use my time after school to pursue the activities that make me happy, as well as other obligations I have.

I acknowledge the fact that some may find my request childish, but the large amount of homework I receive could cause problems in my life. For example, not allowing me to focus on rehearsing music, which I plan on taking on as a career. Also after school I am obligated to babysit my younger sisters which I can’t very well do because I need to juggle it with schoolwork and music. Having a large work load can add to your stress level which can cause acne, stress eating, and stress not-eating, grinding teeth in my sleep, sleep deprivation, depression, panic attacks, and general weirdness.
