The other day in PC for instance, our PC teacher had a list of ‘study skills’ she wanted to share with us, she began to read “5th year students are expected to do 3 hours study each night”, I heard enough, I wanted to cry. 3 hours study on top of written homework each night? That is unfair and cruel. It is being preached to student’s day in, day out about how important exercise and a good night’s sleep is, but school is making that physically impossible for us with the amount of homework we are receiving.
There has been several studies done to prove that that there is no evidence of any academic benefit from homework.
