Homework should be banned from all learning facilities, it causes anxiety in many students that affects a student's learning capability and mental and physical health. The amount of homework that is assigned is astronomical and is completely unnecessary. The lives of students would be better off with homework banned.

You are fighting a war you cannot win.
In order to make your debate logical, you should be arguing that a:
law should be put in palace to Regulate Homework.

Homework is a necessary part of education to reinforce learning,
to give the teaches enough time to get through the curriculum,
to remove the children from a social surrounding whilst requiring them to still be productive,
& Giving a responsibility to a lax society.

In addition: homework should be increased.
Summer schools should become a necessary part of life in America. ~ off course unregulated, and not a statuary portion of your diploma, but instead an interest field selected by the students handed in near mid terms to demonstrate the interests they have taken in education themselves since the last year.
This homework would include things like: Apprenticeships, music, foreign languages, art, writing, reading, sports, or other extra curricular experiences that develop a persons knowledge and skill.

Banning homework is a ridiculous idea guaranteeing negative result.
Factually, homework is not that overbearing or difficult.

However, factually, colleges and Universities , as well as the high schools, should for certain improve their teaching methods, the criteria of their lessons, and the functional purpose and practice of how homework is selected.

I do hope you have brought a very strong argument tot his table to be so upfront about such an influential topic.

Justly speaking. Homework should be moderated.
much homework is senseless and unnecessary. But having time to play videogames: no, not a necessary ban.

school is meant to inspire you to think of what you want to do, and educate yourself accordingly to achieve your goals.

:) that's my take on it.

Homework should be banned because nobody likes it and many students are getting too stressed or are having hard times and would never learn.

Homework is precisely that: work at home. The goal is often increased achievement. The bigger question is whether we want achievement or learning. If the goal is learning, homework kills the desire to learn. And when my kid are home they are on my time not the school's time. Homework suggest that the teacher can't to there job in the time they are given.

no sources required**just good logical points to support your argument.
I went to school in Canada, so maybe the homework is overbearing from Denis's point of view.

Denis, Do you have any sources to back up that argument?

My opinion is as teachers did less teaching in the classroom,they just shifted it to the home. Why are we paying these people so much?
