Finally, I’m home from prison I finally get to hang out with my friends and not speak or learn about school until tomorrow, oh wait I have homework to do well I guess I am going to need to speak and learn about school. I believe that SCHOOL SHOULD HAVE NO HOMEWORK. Homework stops students from getting exercise, homework gives stress to students, Lastly homework prevents students from spending time with their family. This is why I believe that SCHOOL SHOULD HAVE NO HOMEWORK.
Too much homework can cause stress and other health issues. Also, students are working more than the recommended amount of time on homework, and this takes away from family time and free time, as well as time for sleep. When it comes to doing homework, students also want time to relax and enjoy other activities. Shouldn’t students get less homework so that they can be happy and have more time with family and friends? Administrators, teachers, students, and parents need to address this issue and inform people about the effects of homework on students in America. If teachers and parents tried to reduce the amount of homework there would be a decrease in stress and anxiety and an increase in happiness! “Homework makes it so I can’t spend time with my kids and family and I resent
By not giving out homework, students will work harder in class and have better grades. Teachers have to understand that if students are tired from late nights, they wouldn't be able to work efficiently during the day. In addition, students would be much more excited to come to school because they know they wouldn't have to worry about getting any homework. In 2010, a survey was taken and it showed that about 70% of teen ages 11 to 17 get less than 8 hours of sleep per day due to the amount of homework they have to do (Logos). According to Alfie Kohen, students feel forced to do their homework, therefore they aren't learning as much as they should (Ethos). Students lose interest in the topic and do not benefit from what they’re learning. In China, a cry for change by a mother who lost her thirteen year old daughter who committed suicide due to her inability to achieve in math, the mother considers homework is a huge negative factor toward her deceased daughter's tragic ending along with the pressure of society (Pathos). Such a story should leave us wondering, how many more children need to suffer the silent epidemic of school stress. Statistics prove the leading cause for the majority of physical and emotional complaints leading up to diagnosis of depression in middle and high school due to the amount of
"What Americans Keep Ignoring About Finland's School Success" by Anu Partanen begins by talking about the great success Finland has had with their school system after they reformed. Finland completely changed their outlook on school and how it is perceived. Finland now has the highest test scores among the world without all the standardized test and ample amount of homework. The focus is on engaging children in creative play and providing a healthy, safe environment for children. There are no private schools in Finland and children are provided with free schooling, free meals, easy access to health care and counseling. From pre-K to a Ph.D there are no tuition fees. The three major reforms made to the school system
High school students feel more stress than working adults, and children are beginning to feel aversion towards learning. Both adolescents and children are at risk of health issues due to anxiety and less time is spent with family, playing, and sleeping. The cause for all of this is too much homework that is suffocating students. Homework causes students to sleep less, have more stress, and even forces students to give up extracurricular activities. These negative results can be improved by reducing the homework load.
The difference of two years for the commencement of compulsory education contributes to the effectiveness of the Finnish education system, as opposed to the American system. Starting compulsory school at the age of seven, students have more time to mature and recognize school as a positive environment. Students are determined and poised to learn more at school if they enjoy the environment, as opposed to the United States system, where children typically start school around five, offering a more negative outlook on school. The opportunity cost of having American students start earlier in their education careers is the lack of determination and positive view in the starting years of instruction, which makes the system less effective.
As America is not a leader in academic achievement, it would be helpful to take note of what more successful nations are doing for their students. Finland is regarded as one of the best at educating their students, according to the World Economic Forum. As the New York Times Article “From Finland, an Intriguing School-Reform Model” describes, there are many lessons that we can take from their successes. Many of their practices seem unorthodox to us, but it is hard to argue with the results. Finnish students do not start school until they are seven years old, and they are not given homework or tests until they are well into their teens. They are also given on average three times as long of a recess as
The reason of why we should have more days off of school and why we should add 15 minutes to our day. Kids these days are working harder than they have before. Our teachers and parents think more highly of us than ever. Good grades, better friends, and higher in sports. We are being pushed and shoved everywhere. So us kids need more days off of school.
Lynnell Hancock in the article,“Why are Finland’s Schools so Successful?” looks in with the rest of the World, on the small country’s recent educational achievements. Finland’s youth are beating out historically academically strong countries. Hancock crafted a detail-oriented and emotionally strong article that credits the prosperity to the perseverance of the Finnish people. The article explains the structure of the educational system and the power of the teachers. While it also is able to show how the students of this divergent educational system are able to not just learn, but succeed in the learning process.

The Univesity rules are very iprotant, and every student should follow the rules. It is important because those roles will improve the ejucation system.

In High school, homework is often given every night to the students. Is it right for teachers to give out homework every single day? I am here to say that high school students should not have homework every night.
You problem have wounder or said we need more “hall”. But would be good for you day and could have enough learn time. In my opinion, students should not have more time in the halls because 5 mins. is enough, more school hours.
In conclusion, Finland has abolished homework and have shorter days. Giving teens the cognitive relief every so often compared to it all being crammed into their brains in a 50 minute period and have to go straight to the next class. Secondly, Finish student are also given 15 minute breaks after 45 minutes of instruction. In addition to, Finnish teachers are required to already have their masters or bachelors, unlike the good ole U.S. Finland has clearly outdone the United States of America, well time to
