A lot of teenagers think that a lot of Homework affect with their relationship with others and effect with other subjects .How much they will lose if they fail to complete assignments.Lower grades, lower self esteem, less likely to get scholarships, etc. Its may they wont some of time without homework. Are you Pro or Con with this argument ??,Give me your opinion and why you are Pro or Con?

In the hyper-competitive world that we live in today, educators and students often debate about which academic policies will provide the most opportunities for students to succeed. Since every edge is needed in order to combat the incessant force of global competition, homework and the difficulty of classes is often used a medium to gain an advantage.

As Con, I will argue that students do not receive too much homework on the primary basis that:

1) Studies show that the average student only gets about four hours per week
2) The majority of parents think that the amount of homework given is acceptable
3) The amount of homework given has not increased over the past couple of decades
4) Studies show that the current amount of homework has a positive effect on student achievmennt
