I give thanks to Pro for accepting this debate.

Let's begin!

Research shows that homework is great. Kids to better if their grade was partly homework <1>. It is extremely beneficial to kids. Homework provides a way to review concepts learned in class <2>. "A typical homework-completing high school student will outperform students who do not do homework by 69% on standardized tests." ~ http://lrs.ed.uiuc.edu... . Homework teaches discipline <3>. Critical thinking is improved. Homework helps kid learn study habits and teaches time management. Homework also teaches responsibility and develops a concern in studies <4>. Homework gives a chance for students review or learn concepts that they either did not understand or if they missed the class <5>.

<4> http://www.forandagainst.com...
<5> http://www.family-homework-answers.com...

We all know that parents dislike their kids when they jump on the couch, scream, or run around the house breaking some items along the way. Homework solves the problem of breaking items. If homework is not banned, items around the house would not be as broken as if homework was banned.

==> Conclusion

After reading these arguments, I hope that you can understand why homework is beneficial. I have nothing to refute and defend, so I will conclude my side of Round 2. Thank you and happy holidays!

Sincerely,

Yami Yugi

Sorry that I'm so late. I came down with something and have been in bed, coughing or sleeping. If my arguments don't make sense, I may have overdosed on Benylin :p
