Ban Homework In Provincetown Schools
As children grow older the amount of homework teachers give them grows too. Most Middleschoolers and Highschoolers confess that one of the main stressers in their day, is homework. Some highschools assign over 5 hours of home work to their students. Mainly advanced or honor students but even students who aren't as advanced still have more than healthy amounts of homework.
But, We're a middleschool! Yes, but middle schoolers also report having too much homework.
The kind of stress homework gives students is unhealthy. It is called destress and if not managed properly or if the person keeps having multiple stress factors for a long period of time can cause many health problems including Anxiety, Depression, Stomach issues including ulcers
Children also need time to relax after school and participate in activities. Things like sports, clubs, preforming arts. And no, that doesn't mean these things should be taken away from students nor should children be blamed for joining fun activities.
Children and teens also need time to have social time with peers. If they don't then how will they learn how to be social in the adult world.
These are only a few reasons why im making this petition . If you wish to know more there are many, many articles that support me on this so it wont be too hard to look one up.
