Homework On The Weekend

  • Weekends are breaktime

    Weekends are a time where people are supposed to have a break and spend time with their family. Teachers should not give homework because like I said weekends are supposed to be a break from school and just time to be lazy but students can't because they are worrying about homework. So teachers shouldn't give homework on weekends.

  • No Homework Over The Weekend!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I'm 11 and I get so stressed over the weekend because of homework.Weekends are for family's to bond. When ever I ask to go to a friends,watch TV or play video games. My mom is like "check if you have homework and if you do then do it" So if we have no homework over the weekend, then everyone would be happy.

  • Why we need home work on weekend?????

    Like come on am 10 years and I never have a break. I have school 5 day than go a different school the to other days and those 2 days are harder thanks all 5 day and we need to go home with HOME WORK like come on its called weekend for a reason . Well it defats the reasons HOME WORK stress us kids out and parents make it worse by saying we need to learn and learn and so on us kids want to play we want to have fun but HOME WORE MESSES THE PLANES UP!

  • Homework on the Weekends is an Increasingly Depressing Cycle of Disappointment

    Every Monday night I sit in room and think about everyhing I have to do the coming week. I realize that I will be very relieved when the weekend is near. As the the week progresses, which each passing day I tack on assignment after assignment.
    I then start wishing and thinking "I can't wait for this week to be over....It'll get better...."
    It becomes evident Friday afternoon, and often even at the beginning of the week, that I will have several essays to write, tests to study for, and projects to complete in my supposedly two precious days of "relaxation."
    It's not even relaxation, it's more like trying to regain all those hours of lost sleep I lost throughout the past week and actually having time to do my chores. Not to mention conversing with family. I never have time for that Mon.-Fri.
    And so then this lack of rejuvenation leads me to harbour detrimental thoughts: was I not good enough to deserve rest? Am I not working hard enough, is my lack of energy not evidence enough of my dedication towards performing well in school?
    And so I complete my assignments with a hope that maybe the following week I'll earn a time for my body to physically rest.
    This cycle continues, and continues, and continues. And eventually, you become depressed and lethargic.
    So all of you adults who are trying to persuade the world we need longer work hours and more homework, let me tell you something: you don't understand! It's as simple as that. Yeah, sure you "suffered" through high school. But it wasn't nearly as hard then as it is now. So don't try to empathize with me or anyone else my age.
    And don't be surprised when the spike in adolescent suicides is due to an unbearable amount of stress from the "best years of our [teenage] life."

  • Having been to school, as a child

    I hated having to do home work at the weekend I mean I was in school from 8:30 until 3:30 so thats 7 hours a just about a normal work day 5 days a week then I had 2 hours of homework so thats a 9 hour day which as a child is a long day then I have homework to do over the weekend while everyone who is in work has the weekend off. So no weekend home work is a bad thing.

  • Weekend Homework is Counterproductive

    I am a student and weekend homework Is torture. I almost find it counterproductive. Instead of relaxing or spending time with your family, you are forced to write an essay or do a math packet. I just want a break but it seems to get worse and worse, the teachers dishing out more and more homework each weekend. It is HORRIBLE!

  • Well i am a student my self and i say no no no

    Yo yo yo i say no no no because the weekends are for children like my self to have a break and we need time to cooperate.However,the week days are also for children like me or any body else to do some work so i do not think it's fair to have homework on the weekends.

  • Hw creates stress

    Homework on weekends creates a lot of stress to kids who have sports, church, activities, and if they just simply want to hang out. Its worse if the parents have high expectations for students who have many other activities outside of school, which can stress the student out majorly. The weekend is a time to relax and get away from school, because not having homework for two days isn't going to affect the student's education.

  • We need a break

    We're im school 5 days a week from 8-3 and a lot of people like me have after school activities. I don't do my homework until 5 because I'm busy after school. I then have more than 2 hours of homework. I have no free time whatsoever. The weekend is the time for me to rest. I should not be doing something related to school on a non school day. This goes for every student as well.

  • 4 Reasons Why Homework Should Be Banned On Weekends

    Homework is fast becoming a bone in the soup. Eminent heads are calling for it head and the demand for its effective ban is getting more vocal. Yes, there are learned fellows who ask for a middle path; something which seems more logical.

    The complete boycott


    Yes, there is merit in asking for its complete boycott on weekends. You can come up with a fat lot of reasons why it should be so; not all of them will cut the ice, mind you. Here are 4 solid reasons why assignments should be banned on weekends –

    1. Home time – In today’s nuclear world, kids get very little time to gel with their parents. Weekends are the only days (Saturday and Sunday) when working parents have days off or rather relaxed. You almost have a fundamental right to devote the time to them without bogged by the essentiality of assignments. You can of course choose to study any subject you wish to or subject here you lag.
    2. Sense of relief – Weekdays may be hectic for office goers; but it is no less cumbersome for school kids. Thus, when weekends come, there is an innate sense of relief among both kinds. Assignments kill that feeling; and thus spread the germ of rancor among students regarding studies. With the banning; the ball will judiciously be in your court as a student. If you wish, you can yourself devise assignments; say, a narrative essay or a chapter of mathematical problems.
    3. Striking a balance – This decision will actually be beneficial for the longevity of homework. When the weekend assignments are shown the door; the call for complete boycott will naturally get diluted, if not muted. Students will understand that they cannot get everything under the sun and a sense of compromise will be reached. In this light; this may be a far-sighted decision.
    4. Revision time – Those students who do not remain updated with studies are pressed harder by assignments that leave very little time to sty updated with the developments in different subjects. With the weekend ban, those students will get a glorious chance to revise what they have missed and get better at subjects that intimidate them. Since this procedure will be self-ignited, there will be more purpose and heart in the studies.

    So what if you are a student, you have the right to enjoy your holidays without any fuss or compulsions. Let there be days when you can safely say no to assignments.
