This study analyses the burden that fifth-grade students’ homework brings. We were assigned to do research on this issue due to its being quite recent, and along with our experience, we encountered a lot of discussion with parents, teachers, and also with the students themselves, regarding the burden that homework shows. The sample of the study consisted of 60 students of the 5th grade of the elementary school of Dardania in Prishtina. The questionnaire included four types of questions of the scientific research, comprising of exploratory, descriptive, explanatory, and evaluation questions. This study belongs to the methodology of quantitative research, where the measurement instrument is the questionnaire. Homework have their own impact, but considering the plan program, which is overloaded, it is really difficult for children if the homework is not well explained by the teacher using two or three examples in the class, and then at home too. There are similarities between classwork and homework, it’s just the numbers that change, but if the student has not achieved to comprehend it, or if the teacher was not able to simplify it, then the child will have difficulty in doing that homework. Research found out that students finish their homework better when they’re at home, in a more efficient way, around 65% of them. Whereas 35% of them are overloaded everyday with homework.
Key words: students, homework, priorities, teachers, parents, etc.
