The middle school student had gotten about 6 hours of sleep last night. When he walked into class it was easy to tell he was very nervous and fatigued by the look on his face. Today in the school, many classes were hosting midterms because it was that time of year. The student had said that he spend hours on homework and even more time studying. He had indeed lost a little sleep stressing over his test.
When he opened the door excitement ran through his blood. The room was huge! He could easily fit everything he ever wanted. Their was a window in his room where he could see the beaches with surfers surfing the waves. When everything was all set up Jim rushed into his room and jumped into his queen size bed. Jim grabbed the remote and turned on his TV and his PS3 and settled into his comfy bed. One thing rolled in and out of his brain though. Tomorrow was his first day at San Ysidro High School and Jim wasn’t sure what to expect. Jim alarm rang at 7 o’clock and Jim excitedly jumped out of bed and ran downstairs. “Read for your first day of school kids?”, said said Jim’s mom. “Yes Mom”, said Jim, and Jessica in unison. “Well you better hurry up if you don’t want to be late for the first day of school!”, said Jim’s and Jessica’s mom. “Now kids if you make your beds, do some laundry, and do some laundry every once awhile. I will pay you guys five dollars each.” , said said their mother. “Sweet” , said Jim and Jessica. “That starts today!” , said Amanda. After Jim had gotten ready he ran down his driveway to catch the bus. When the bus arrived Jim held his breath as he walked up the steps
It was Monday and it was 7:30 A.M. and he was going to be late for school again. Jeeef was annoyed that he was going to be late to school, but at least he would have a longer time away from school even if it meant his parents would be mad at him for being late. His parents drove him to school while highly annoyed that he was late even though they were the ones that woke him up instead of buying him a louder alarm clock or letting him have his phone in his room to wake him because his old clock was not very loud and the phone did wake him up. When he got to school he was bothered because everyone looked at him as he walked into the room since he does not like being looked at no matter the circumstance.
So the next day my parents came to school. And the teacher told my parents that Jacob needs to starts doing work or he wouldn’t be able to pass 5th grade so my parents was so disappointed of me and couldn’t believe that this was happening .

I’m going to be so late for school.” With a hop, a skip, and a jump he made his way down the stairs; careful not to trip or scuff his new Jordan's. “How would you know what time it is? Don't you need this?”. He tossed me my watch, and I caught it hurriedly, suddenly very aware of the nakedness of my wrist. A quick glance at the clock face revealed that it was already 11:45; if I hurried I would barely make the second half of 5th period. “What is the matter with you? Why aren’t we at school? Mom is going to kill us!” I hissed at him through clenched teeth. “School? Oh yeah, it’s canceled today - something about a water main break on Cornell. Mom’s at work, so she doesn’t know a thing,” he sneered as he breezed past me out the door. “I’m going to meet Ben down at the club, thanks for being such easy prey!”, he called back when he saw my annoyed expression.

By the time he got around to actually starting our first period class, nearly half of the class time had passed, giving us only 20 minutes for reviewing homework, taking notes, doing that day 's worksheet and getting our homework before trotting off to our next class. The first week of the class wasn’t hard to keep up with because the class had nothing to go over and all of the information was new. No classes were giving out much homework so I had plenty of time to get help from friends and my parents with the material; however, as the semester progressed more classes started unleashing an ungodly workload on my 15 year old mind and
The majority of students have, at one point or another, wished for less homework. For some student’s homework is not a big issue but for other students it can take hours and even days to do all their homework. That wasted time could be used for enjoyment or learning life skills instead of homework. Nine in ten high school students reported feeling stressed about homework (Galloway 4). So, should students get less homework? Yes, students should receive less homework because it improves their well-being by reducing stress and its impacts on health, increasing leisure time, and showing that homework does not affect grades significantly.
