National No Homework Day
National No Homework Day is observed on the May 6 of every year. National No Homework Day is associated with the anticipation of joy and happiness. It is a day where the children can tell their parents and childrens that they will not do their homework. On this day, spend some time on playing your favourite video games or go and hang out at the nearby mall with your friends.
“I feel sorry for kids these days. They get so much homework. Remember the days when we put a belt around our two books and carried them home? Now they’re dragging a suitcase. They have school all day, then homework from six until eleven. There’s no time left to be creative.” – Tom Petty
History of National No Homework Day
Thomas & Ruth Roy created the National No Homework Day. According to the reports, the Kids in the United States are spending nearly 17.5 hours in a week on homework alone. This number doesn’t include the hours that they spend in school. The study from the Stanford University has stated that the students who spend too much time on schoolwork outside of the classroom have higher levels of stress and problems with their physical health. Thus why Thomas & Ruth Roy created this day to help the children to spend sometime other than doing homework. The main aim of the National No Homework Day is not to ban the homework entirely; it is a day to give kids little time to do the things that they like.
