Sometimes parents have activities for their kids, but they find out that their kids can’t go because of homework. For example, some parents like to go out to eat a lot, maybe even to H2O Oasis in Anchorage. A lot families visit relatives and the kids cannot do that because of homework.
Every time we use paper for homework we kill trees. Cutting down trees is harmful because they filter carbon dioxide that helps us breath. When we kill trees we are harming ourselves.
According to Professor Robert Tai, homework does not help you on a test unless it is math homework. He also says that teachers should give a reason why they are assigning homework.
I think that every parent should be informed about the homework we receive. When the parents are informed, the kids actually do the homework. I understand that the parents cannot be informed every single time their kids are assigned homework. The parents should be informed about the homework assignments that teachers don’t think the students will complete. After a while the kids might start to hate school, and their teachers. Some kids drop out of school because they think the homework load is too much.
Math is one of the subjects that you can give the most homework in. If you think about it, kids do a lot more homework in math than any other subject. Because math is used almost every day in our lives, teachers assign more of it because the more students practice math, the better they will become.
I know that it is important to do our homework, but sometimes it makes the student feels stressed, dazed, tried, and bored. That is why I want the teachers to give their student less homework. If they need for us to do more work in school then make the school days longer.
