No Homework, more sleep!

Students are not getting at least 8 hours of sleep because of too much homework.

Dear Future President,

                 Students are sleeping in class from pulling an all-nighter doing homework. The average sleep time is 8 hours, but high school students only sleep less than 5 hours a day. If a person doesn't get enough sleep then their brain does not function clearly. I have many friends who are taking AP classes and  they would always complain that they only slept for 4 hours doing homework. The next day, they would fall asleep in class and miss out on the lessons. First off, teachers should not assign students homework because most of them would rush through it to do other activities. Students are also human they are not machine, so they need their rest after 6 plus hours of school. The school system needs to change for this matter.
