Homework is something which is always deemed as a way to cause stress and just another way to burden the students at home even. Students spent their almost half day in school to learn then why there is a need of homework?
Some people have an opinion that homework is meant to make students more capable and progressive. But the opinion doesn’t sound to be very rational as for progressives, parents sent their children to school already.
Students need time to relax and refresh their mind by indulging in some productive activities like games etc at home. Burden of work given for home doesn’t let them to do so and consequently no relaxation is given to the children.
However, this mother is also someone who is very irked and annoyed because of the load and burden of homework her kid had to go through.
Bunmi’s 10-year-old daughter is a very intelligent and innovative girl who got stressed due to the burden of homework. Looking at this, Bunmi decided to email her kid’s school to tell them that her daughter won’t be doing homework anymore and that is for all the right reasons.
“My kid is in school from 8:15 in the morning to 4:00 in the evening daily, so someone please explain to me why she should have 2-3 hours of homework to do every night?” – Bunmi wrote on her Facebook post where she raised voice against the norm of giving work for home while referring to the email she sent to school
This mom totally makes sense by talking against the norm of giving homework. The rule of giving task for home has become nothing but merely a way to burden the students which affect their intellectual skills and consequently talent is wasted which is ultimately the loss of a nation.
Studies is a source of getting knowledge and production of educated and capable people. The tool of education shouldn’t become a source of exploitation and destruction of the students by burdening them with lots and lots of homework.
Instead, we should focus on building the minds of our children and make them civilized plus intelligent people. This will be a triumph for both the nation and students.
