Homework: Too much or Too little?

Usually teachers just give students homework when they don’t finish the assignment in class, some teachers don’t give any homework, and some give some students homework every night.

When students have homework, it takes up a lot of their time to do extracurricular activities. Some students that play a sport are not able to start their homework until after practice, then when they get home they could have chores and other things that are needed to do. Some might not even be able to start their homework until after they eat dinner. Giving students a lot of homework could make them stay up later, not get enough sleep, then fall asleep in class and make them have to repeat the day before.

Personally, I am not a fan of homework and when I get home I just want to relax. When I have a lot of homework it makes me not want to do it even more.
