Kirkwood High School is trying a new experiment that entails not assigning homework to students on weekends.
The school says for the weekends following February 16 and March 9, there will be no homework assigned.
The goal of the experiment is to reduce stress.
School leaders say many students juggle after-school jobs and activities, in addition to homework and class schedules.
The work of teachers is also heavy during non-school hours due to grading papers and lesson planning.
