I think it does help your grades and test scores. I think this because if you get really bad test scores some teachers really care weather you get bad grades or not will let you FOR HOMEWORK fix your answers and give you a passing grade.

It helps your learning because when you work on things in class there are others around you to stimulate your brain. When you are at your house the only other people there are your family which most children (including me) have a tendency to ignore. So you mostly depend on yourself making sure you understand the given concept.

Even if you are good at school you still need refreshers so you are sure your concept has stuck in your head.

Homework helps with grades and test scores if it comes with a reward. For many students in America it is reasonable to believe that simply doing well on homework and eventually doing well on tests are not sufficient rewards. Perhaps a reason for this is because it is difficult for adolescents to envision the long term effects of their actions. Rather than thinking about their long-term pleasure and success, they are often more concerned with short-term pleasure. Children that are able to delay their gratification have shown through psychology experiments to be more successful in the long run. Therefore getting good grades should be paired with a reward that would immediately stimulate children's pleasure pathways in their brains. They would receive both short-term pleasure, and by doing well on their homework due to rewards, they would have a higher chance of retaining the material and doing well on future tests.

If the teacher is doing his or her job in class, the students shouldn't need that extra enrichment at home. Besides, humans need sleep. Often times kids have so many after-school activities that they don't get to sleep until 10-11 o'clock. Is it really the job of the teachers to make them have to stay up even later? If they stay up much later than they do, they may not be able to focus in class, and as a result, they may not learn as much or do badly on tests. Saying that homework actually helps is absolutely ridiculous. Dkpokusaev has my FULL permission to use any and all of these arguments during the debate.
