Should we have study halls? 

Should we have study halls? 


This is something I have been thinking about for a while and I believe that study halls are useless (for me personally anyway). I would rather do my homework at home as it is quieter, I’m in my room and it’s more comfortable.  


The only thing that study halls are useful for is if you need help.  But when you are at home, you can also get help by looking up a video or calling a friend. 


Some research says that study halls are good for people who have bad grades and/or a bad home environment.  And also that study halls can benefit. But I think, then, instead of going to study hall, go to the classroom that you need help in. So, if someone is struggling, say in Math, then they should go there for extra help, during what I need (win). Which is basically like a study hall. 


But there are very many negatives to having a study hall like people who don’t use their time wisely and they could just have another class period. 


Many other people say that you should have study halls so then you don’t have to stay after school because staying after school is not very beneficial. Also, if you have to take your homework home, you don’t have as much time to spend with your family. But, I still feel like there is no point in having a study hall when you don’t get a grade for it. So here are the facts given on why I feel like we should not have study halls.

  • I personally believe that we should have study halls because I personally have one and I think that it is very helpfull because you can work on late homework or if need be finish your homework so then you do not have to take it home with you.

  • I think having study halls is good and bad for some people. I think that they are good if the students use their time wisely, but if they just mess around on their phones, then they are not helpful. But, I think that people need study halls so we can't get rid of them. I think study halls are a good time to use the restroom because you won't miss any class time.

  • I think that we should have study hall because students can work on late homework or they can get work done that they didn't due or they were gone that day. Sometimes it's a good time to use the bathroom during that time but if I didn't have a study hall I would do it before class or after class.

  • I have had a study hall every semester of middle/high school and they have been extremely beneficial to me. I have been able to get at least 95% of all my homework ever assigned done in study halls. Study hall is also a nice break from constantly having information thrown at you. Also, I like having free time at home to do whatever I want, but if I have homework that takes my free time away.

    • IM glad you know how to use them properly this is great I just feel like people do not use them wisely and people just do this to any teacher which is not good to study hall teachers should have it easy. but for the people that are good and use them wisely, this is great.

  • I personally do not have a study hall and I wish I did. I don't have enough room in my schedule to have a study hall but I wish I did. They are very beneficial, especially for people that are in sports. It gives a lot of time and opportunity to get your work done so you aren't staying up late at night trying to get it done.

  • I personally have a study hall, and I think that they are very beneficial. I think study halls are great for many reasons. For instance, it's a great time to finish your homework and use the restroom. If I didn't have a study hall I would go to the bathroom at the beginning of a class. 

    • I feel like this is good for people who actually use them I am so glad we get the choice and I feel like you are right about going to the bathroom at the beginning of class because that is when the most important information comes out.

  • I do have a study hall and I do think that they are beneficial. I believe that a Study hall is a good time to go to the bathroom during the day. I get almost all of my homework done in my study hall. Overall I do like my study hall and use most of it well.

  • Yes, I believe that you should have a study hall some time in your day. First having a study hall is very beneficial to be able to get all you work done. Another reason that a study hall is beneficial is that it is time to get your mind off of all the school work and just rest.
