Every school in the world at one point has given their students homework on weekends and holiday breaks, and that isn’t fair to the students.
Every year students must go to school 10 out of the 12 months in a year. Every week us students have school 5 out of the 7 days. We wake up at 6 or earlier to get ready for school which starts at 7:30am and dont get out until 2:12pm! That isn’t including students who play sports or other out of school activities. Practice for sports like football can last from after school to around 5pm. If there is a game that day, you normally dont get home until around 8:30. If you have an away game, sometimes you dont get home until 10pm or later! We just want to relax after a hard day of learning, but the work is not over just becuase school is out for the day. We get homework.
So we are in school for about 7 hours and at our sport. In addition, hours of homework. That is why we have the weekends. On the weekends, we are suppose to enjoy ourselves, relax, hangout with friends, sleep in and other things we enjoy. Sadly, we cannot do that. Teachers often give us weekend homework. We were suppose to have fun, we had our weekend planned out. Now, we have homework. We are now cramming to finish our homework so we can hangout, and actually have fun. Unfortunately, by the time you know it, the weekend is over! We never got to hang out with friends since our parents never let us leave the house until all homework and chores are completed! What is really bad, is on holidays we get breaks with homework. Our families celebrate holidays by spending time with friends and family at a get-together. The problem is the homework delays the celebration. I have heard some teachers say, “Just becuase your going on break for a holiday, that doesnt mean it is a learning vacation.”
Now we wasted our entire holiday break/weekend doing homework! Now Monday comes around and we have another week of work.The weekend is when us students are suppose to have a break from stressed cause from work. Of course, I do understand why the teachers give us homework. They just want us to pactice what we learned in class so we will get a good grade. I totally understand, but that is why they should give us homework during the school week, not on the weekends.
