Poll: Should Students Have Homework on Weekends?

One student is proposing an end to weekend homework. Do you agree?


"I am calling for a [homework] ban on weekends and holidays for the health and well-being of Syosset High School students," wrote Nikhil Goyal, a 16-year-old Syosset High School student.

Goyal, whose plea was published Thursday on the Huffington Post High School page, says homework should not be abolished during the week, but a ban should be placed on weekend homework for the sake of students' mental and physical health. He has already opened conversations with Syosset school administrators to get the ball rolling on the issue.

My 7th grader said yes because he would have time to "play" with his friends, because of all the homework he has on weekends he doesn't see his friends anymore

You have to ask yourselves this...did this country's doctors, lawyers, engineers and the like not have homework on the weekends?
