PSB Ballerina Posted December 8, 2011 Report Share Posted December 8, 2011 Okay so I go to a public school but we get an insane amount of homework for a 7th grader. I do on average 3-4 hours of homework a night. I've already brought this up to numerous teachers at school and also it's especially hard on dance days because I dance until 8:00 pm and I go to the studio straight from my house after getting off the bus (3:45 and arrive at 4:15). No breaks besides water breaks which are only 3 minutes at best. Their responses (my school teachers) are "Dance isn't an excuse!" "You should cut down on your dance classes..." etc. Because of the homework I go to bed exhausted and wake up still tired. After school (my classes are mentally painful/exhausting because they are really boring and all we do is busywork and I end up teaching my friends who don't understand) on dance days I'm so tired and during class I'm really worried about how I'll get my homework done. I'm a great student and I don't like getting bad grades and if we don't hand in our homework we don't go to recess of which are our only breaks and they're always cut short to 10 minutes and only 2 times a week or we have another thing we have to do for not having our homework. I find it hard to really give myself to my dancing because I'm too worried about school or I'm just exhausted. A lot of girls in my class at dance are in the same grade as me and have half the amount of homework as I do. What is your advice? ***I wasn't really sure where to post this so sorry if it's in the wrong section*** Quote Link to comment
