             Petition for Having A No Homework Policy Over Vacations in Souhegan High School

               We, the undersigned, think there should be a no homework policy over vacations, such as Thanksgiving break, the holiday break in December, February break and April break, in Souhegan High School.

                According to the Pittsburg Post-Gazette, “Some of the nation’s most competitive schools are changing their homework policies…”  Schools such as Harvard-Westlake in Los Angeles and Riverdale Country Day School in New York City are among the many that have adopted a homework policy.

                Ridgewood High School, in New Jersey, put in place a no homework policy to emphasize the time for family and friends.  When the students come back from the vacations teachers indicate that the students are eager to learn and are refreshed from the long break.

                Vacations are meant for relaxing and spending time with family members, not being cooped up inside doing homework all day.  Kelly Boylan, a student at Ridgewood High School, has stated that, “…we’re humans and not just students.”
