Homework Weighing You Down?

Israel Quintero, Writer

High schools worldwide are constantly giving students homework. According to a study by Standford University, 56 percent of students considered homework a primary source of stress. Excessive amounts of homework can result in sleep deprivation, headaches, exhaustion, weight loss, poor eating habitsetc. 

Valeria Quintero, a senior attending Edison High School, said “It’s not worth it. You get less free time, more stress, and you get overwhelmed with how much work you must get done. I feel like teachers forget that we have a life outside of school and other priorities to attend.”
