There has been a lot of debate on whether students should be given homework. While some parents and teachers argue that it is for their all-round development, others believe it causes too much burden on little ones who should get more time to play and enjoy themselves. Well, shouldn’t we ask students what they think?
A little boy in California decided to fight his own case and put forward arguments telling his teacher why there should be no homework. Now his answers are going viral, winning hearts online.
In the lengthy letter, Little Edward Emmanuel Cortez (Eddie) explained that he didn’t like doing school work during the weekend as weekends are meant to be stress-free. He further argued that the homework makes him “mad and unhappy”.
Using real examples, he added, “The real world jobs don’t give you homework unless you’re a boss or teacher.” Deeming homework “not useful”, he declared the “case closed”!
So my cousin and his wife got an email from their sons teacher. He didn’t do his hw so she asked him to write a paper saying why he didn’t do his hw and this is what she got…😂🤦🏼♀️ pic.twitter.com/2eDh2IgB9X

He put his whole government name on this and is willing to be the face of the class action suit. We don’t deserve him, but we’re glad he’s here.

I’m a teacher and I 100% agree with this child! Stop assigning weekend homework. Limit homework during the week. Teachers and these ridiculous workloads are causing kids to HATE school and reject learning!
