Assignments are absolutely a waste of time . They only waste the time and energy of the kids and add to their never ending stresses! Teenagers have end number of problem - parents, teachers , friends , health, updating ......... and many more . Assignments add to their list of works . Even if they gained knowledge, it was wort , but children never take assignments seriously . most of them plug in their earphones, sit in their laptop and copy whatever the first site posts! Teachers are also equally to be blamed , they always check the assignments blindly , had they checked it open eyedly, children would have been serious about it ! But this is no the case , both _ the students and the teachers are least bothered about assignments. So i think that assignments are a complete waste of time for the teachers as well as childrens !
