I go to public high school, and I have had enough with all of the homework the teachers are giving out. They forget that every student has eight classes and jobs because they also have to help support themselves and their families. I do homework for an average of six hours each day, after the eight hours of school that I have.
If I skip a day of school, I go from being a straight-A student — to B’s and C’s. There should be a limit of how much homework we are allowed to get or have teachers hand out less homework. Things aren’t like they used to be; school is harder and teachers are giving out two to three assignments each night. That’s roughly twenty-four assignments every two nights, and I think students should have something of a break.
