The Battle of Homework

Extracts from this document...


The Battle of Homework Everyday, billions of adolescents walk home with book-bags weighing millions of pounds stuffed with papers, books and utensils that they are going to need for their homework every night. Homework directly translates to pain and suffering. This torture is implemented upon students by the teachers on a daily, never-ending basis. This constant battle between the teachers and the students has a very negative impact on both of their lives. Homework is something that should be eliminated due to the mental stress it causes for both the givers and receivers, it harms more than it helps, and creates a waste of time and has an overall negative effect.
