Is homework necessary
Debate Rounds (2)
The definition of necessary is as follows
required to be done, achieved, or present; needed; essential.
"Homework helps memory, and helps you learn."
My argument against this is that busywork does not in fact, help students learn.  Cooper (1989a) argues that reviews on the link between homework and achievement often directly contradict one another and are so different in design that the findings of one study cannot be evaluated fairly against the findings of others. There is no proven benefit to homework and it's effect on learning. There have been studies  that have shown that students who do not do their homework have similar average grades than students who do.
" If schools think that homework dos not help they wont do it but they bleave that is is helpful. It dus help. it helps me learn math and it helps kids be responsible. "
Just because it helps you learn math, does not mean that it is necessary for every student. Plenty of students I know (including me) rarely do their homework, and still end up with high test scores on their SAT's, regular tests, and quizzes. If it was completely necessary then there would not be a single person who does not do their homework that gets good test grades.
"thay ned that to get a job not being responsible gets you fired"
Not sure what relevance this has to homework, but students learn responsibility in a multitude of ways, thus making homework simply an option, not a necessity.
