Con

I don't think home work is helpful in schools.

Pro

I think homework is helpful in schools because the teacher is trying to help us know the lesson.
Debate Round No. 1

Con

Home work is not helpful because it causes stress on the students and parents. Also If a student forgets their homework at home then they get a bad grade even if they stayed up all night doing it and was so exhausted that they forgot it at home. So in conclusion homework is not useful and should not be given to students.

I think homework is important because it's the parents way of thinking you'll get your homework done.

Reasons for voting decision: This is not a very good debate. There were only 2 rounds so not much could be said. Pro ignored Con, and Con ignored Pro. Con did not address Pro's point in round 1 and Pro did not refute Con's statement in round 2. Honestly I believe this is a tie. And seeing that Con is winning, I will even it out.

Reasons for voting decision: I feel that neither people adequately defended their side. A pity that pro resorted to circular reasoning at the end, and failed to recognize important counterarguments.
