I am arguing in favor of banning all vacation homework that children and teenagers have to deal with every year.

I don't agree with your statements. The homework that each student gets is for the well being of those children or teenagers. During the long holidays there is a chance for the children to forget everything that they have learnt. So if they have forgotten what is the benefit of this studies. This is where the vacation homework come in.

With vacation homework the children are revising what they have studied again and again. This helps in the studies of those children.

Just imagine what would happen if we ban these homework. As i have said above there is an easy chance for these children to forget what they have learnt. So in other words we can say that there is no benefit in studying. Studies determines what a man should become. So if you go on banning these vacation homework then those children would get almost no benefit in their studies.

So i hope you understand my argument and hope you argue against it in the third round. I will show the sources in my last round in this debate.

According to the Merriam Webster dictionary:

1va·ca·tion- noun, often attributive \vā-G2;kā-shən, və-\
a period of time that a person spends away from home, school, or business usually in order to relax or travel


Are children who are on vacation relaxing when they are doing school work on vacation days? My answer is probably not becuase they are stressing out over all the school work they are forced to do on the days that were meant for them to relax and have a good time.

My argument is that students who want to enjoy their vacation should be able to without being forced to take on homework assignments against their free will. Studying should be optional and students can study without actually having to do assignments by reading materials that are taught in class. We all only have one childhood and it shouldnt be wasted.

My opponent is saying about homework in the lives of lazy children and teenagers. These are the ones who would feel very tensed. A good student who wishes that he should succeed in his life would never see the homework as a burden but would see them as a blessing.

Also these homework are not taking your full holidays. The teachers are giving the vacation homework to revise what the children has studied. There should be some time left behind on each day to do these. You must not keep the whole things on the final day which can cause bad effects. So instead the children should do these vacation homework bit by bit and day by day. This would also make us feel nice and has only good effects on children.

We know that most children are willing to enjoy the holidays. In midst of these enjoyments it is a true fact that the vacation homework can provide relaxation among children.

Thus we can say that if we do these homework in a right way it is indeed good. These can help you to succeed.....

A good student who wishes that he should succeed in his life would never see the homework as a burden but would see them as a blessing." (Con assumes that only lazy people hate vacation homework and that they are the only ones stressed out about it and apparently all other students find it a blessing even though parents know this isn't the case in real life. Students who actually enjoy doing homework are a very small minority and even they are not guaranteed to have successful lives anyway.)
Con also says:
" In midst of these enjoyments it is a true fact that the vacation homework CAN PROVIDE RELAXATION among children. "
(This statement is somewhat absurd due to the fact that most students will not feel relaxation from homework but would feel the opposite, stress and anxiety. if they do feel relaxed, it is the minority of the whole group.)

Winter and spring vacation? Sure get rid of homework. It's only a week or two anyway. Summer vacation....mmm well....don't get rid of ALL the homework. Give the kids a little packet of the general math problems they worked on all year, give them a reading assignment and give them maybe a science/social science related report. Something small like, find someone who works for the government and interview them about blah blah blah. Those assignments are EASY grades for the beginning of the next school year, and even adults have to work sometimes on their vacations.

I think it is a bit ridiculous and a little lazy to insist that all homework be banned over "vacation." There is not some cosmic rule that says people are entitled to periods when there can never be any work accomplished. Do those who want to never do homework over "vacation" ever hope to have a high achieving or remunerative job? Law school, for example, assigns homework over "break." Many, many professionals work over the "holidays." Refusing to do work, or feeling entitled to not to have to work, certainly tends to make one less competitive in a capitalistic economy.
