students have school for approximately 8 hours a day. we go to school, study hard, and do our best. then they give us ASSIGNED homework. we go home and spend 1-3 hours on homework. most students don't get home from school until 4. that gets us to have to eat dinner witch brings us to 8. then as students have chores witch brings us to about 10. now, most teens go to sleep around 10 pm. so...wheres our time.we as teens need some time to ourselves.we wake up the next morning and do it all over again. we cant keep doing this. we have to contain this homework problem and get rid of homework.

Casey, homework helps raise your grades, and dinner does not take 4 hours to eat, if you get home at 4, do your homework for an hour, eat dinner, do chores taking you to 9 o clock, and home work isnt an everyday thing.

Without homework, student wont have a chance to revise lessons that they learned at school. Students hardly study at home if they dont have any pressures. So homework is nesscessary which impels them to study more after school
