Does much homework cause stress in students?

Armando
It is all over the news that kids are spending a lot of time on homework.  And, according to some people, it is way too much. Survey shows that, teachers are trying to do more with less, which can result in a burden of schoolwork outside of school. Some says that there is no evidence to suggest that homework is helpful to student success. Above all, too much of it can cause sadness in students and cause them to depression. Others, however, claim that homework is a main thing and helpful. Because students can practice the concepts taught in class, can build good study habits, and reflect on their own learning. As an 8th standard student who is in advanced classes, homework is the cause of my decrease in grades. It is not just complete waste of time. If in need of writing essays visit website. Homework's help to improve students’ learning process. Teachers often have children covering material at home by themselves that they do not teach in class hours. The teacher's explanation for this is that there are not enough hours in the day and he/she wants to cover more topics on a certain subject. But being taught how to do something by a piece of paper just is not same as being taught by an actual human being. The teacher can explain things in many ways if someone does not know how to do something or they can respond to questions about the subject for better learning.  Teachers need to reduce down a lot on homework.  It should be to students for an hour. But when the students get out of school and just want to relax after school it is kind of hard when they have a load of homework. The only time one should have a lot of homework is in college because that's understandable.
