  Is homework right?
Updated 13 February 2003, 11.18
A girl doing her homework
Ceri from Wales hates homework and thinks it should be stopped!

"Homework - the one thing that kids truly loathe about school.

You could say that kids moan about school dinners, Year Nines smoking in the toilets or unfair rules. But homework is a real thorn in my side.

I live in a hectic family, in a hectic household.

I have an older brother and sister who each have they're own things to cope with and deal with such as my brother's army cadet meetings and my sisters boyfriend (no surprise there) and my mum and me barely have time to fit my things in.

The splits

I had to drop out of my dancing school when I got to high school because I had around four homeworks a night.

It's hard to cope with and even more so when your trying to practise doing the splits every night!

Also schools pressurise you into doing extra-curricular activities which are unavoidable.

Home time should be spent relaxing, which homework definitely isn't.

So I ask you, is homework right?"

Ceri, 12, North Wales
