A study from shows that students perform best in school when they recieve 10–12 hours of sleep each night, while only 15% of teenagers in america reported themselves sleeping 8 hours or more on school nights, according to the national sleep foundation of america.
Also, when you don’t sleep enough, you start to get sudden mood swings, which can severely affect your performance in school and your relationships with your friends and/or family.
Every single school in the world sets homework to be done after school (that is why it is called work), and usually after the 8 or more hour school day most students are tired.
This means that students will not have their full concentration when they are attending to their homework.
Another reason why I believe homework should be banned is because it takes away time or can completely eliminate time for leisure activities, other commitments, or hobbies.
Sure, there are some positive impacts of homework such as it giving assistance to students, helping students revise topics, etc., but there in all of the time students are made to spend on homework, what about all other commitments and hobbies in life?
Sometimes when students do homework it adds unnecessary stress to students, and then this can distract students from access to leisure time and community activities that also teach important life skills.
A study by scholar Denise Pope at Stanford revealed that out of 4,300 students at high performance schools 60% considered or stated that homework is a primary source of stress.
Also, if students are required to do homework, then what happens when they have a test coming up?
Homework takes away from their revision time, and this can affect their test scores.
