Why Kids Should Have Less Homework Homework has been given to students to reinforce what they learn at school, and hopefully to help them learn the material better. Except, too much homework is not helpful, and can be counterproductive. Too much time can be spent on completing homework which could take away a kids social life, family time and takes away time from participating in sports or other activities. The amount of homework a teacher can give to a student should be limited and only assigned if necessary. Firstly, many teachers defend the idea of large amounts of homework, claiming that it helps students prepare for a world that is increasing competively. Too much of homework can be harmful to kids both physically and mentally. A lot of homework usually means a lot of books to carry. Carrying large amounts of weight daily at a young age can do a lot of damage because the bones are still in development. Injuries can possibly occur or lead to serious problems later in life like shoulder, neck and back pain. Also, the large amount of homework is causing kids in both high school and middle school to be up until, maybe, midnight or later when other activities such as sports, clubs, and so on are included. So that causes kids to wake up early in the morning to finish their homework, leaving with not enough sleep. Some parents and teachers argue that it would be beneficial to a child’s academics to limit school activities. Homework also takes away from time that a kid could be spending with his or her family. This time could be better spent on family time or doing things together and also other things that you do during the weekends when homework is limited. Critically acclaimed author Tamim Ansary reports since 1981, the amount of homework given to the average sixth grader has increased by more than fifty percent. Many people claim that the increase in homework dates as far back as 1957, when the Russians launched Sputnik into outer space. The

tests. Now imagine that you have to lug a heavy book bag home just to sit there and do homework for one to three hours. I know how this feels and I'm sure this is what kids my age have to go through every single day at school. Homework is annoying, boring and just downright hard.

I believe, as a student, that homework is just a tool that teachers use to keep us busy. It doesn’t really have a good purpose and there is more of a negative side to it than a positive side. Homework causes kids to get very stressed out, it causes stress in their families, and studies show that it doesn’t improve test scores. It actually shows the opposite: Duke University’s Harris Cooper found out that, “doing more than 60 to 90 min. a night in middle school and more than 2hr. in high school is….
