Should homework be banned
Debate Rounds (3)
Some kids doing their homework might not have a computer at home to do it, by not being able to complete it the child is then punished for something they can't help. A lot of children are busy anyway, some kids have a hard life where they have to look after younger siblings or extra curricular activities out side of school.
We have 6 hours a day do do work, why does it have to come home?
I know that in my class a lot of kids do not complete their homework due to them not being able to have access to any resources at their home.
Homework isn't a necessity of education, we go to school for 6 hours a day and then have to come home for more, I don't believe it is fair, a lot of kids don't learn anything from homework as a lot try not to do it cause it's our own time. Homework doesn't show that assignment have to be handed in on times it just shows that we have to do extra homework outside of school and have to put our extra curricular activities to the side. I personally could not go out during the day with my Family because the homework tasks that was set for me was due that week and if it was handed in late I would have got a detention.
Homework is something no kid enjoys and is placed into our personal lives. So we have 6 hours a day of learning then we have to come home to homework, I don't believe it is fair. Homework should be banned because it's something that is not really necessary, depending on what it is. Studying is different to homework unless you are asked to study as homework, every kid has the choice to study or not, some kids may not be able to, some kids might not have to and some kids just choose not to do it.
Homework should be banned!
I will admit that some homework assignments are ridiculous in either the assignment itself or when it's supposed to be due. But if you section it out, in even proportions (or however you want to divide it), it can be done. But there's a difference between actually having a problem or just wanting more time to do nothing to construct you to the world. Doing homework will get you ready for life in many different ways (because of the subject). And as you get older your job could influence country's economy or on a bigger scale the whole world.
Honestly it comes down to priorities if you want to be one of those people whose life revolves around what they did in high school, go right ahead but some people actually want to do things with there life. There so much bad going on in the world that need to be changed and because where the next-generation we need to open our eyes and learn all we can. Even if that means bringing it home with us.
I believe that homework shouldn't be banned because of the fact that we need to understand and know about the world, whether it be math, history, all the new literature or current events are all important and take more than six hours a day for weeks on end to learn about. Teachers don't give us homework to do you mean they do it to help us in the long run, so if you can take a step back and look at the bigger picture and look at all of it not just what you want to see

Reasons for voting decision: Whilst pro had better spelling and grammar, con won the debate with this sentence: 'One of my friends doesn't have Internet at home all of our assignments on the Internet so she just talk to the teacher about handing it in a little later when she can.' There is no school-attending child who is unable to do homework. If you can do the work at school, you can do it at home. Haven't got a computer or internet at home? Great, then do it on the school computers during your break-time or lunch-time. Don't have computers in school? (This doesn't happen btw) Then go down to a library and do it there. Pro is, as con pointed out, just making excuses and doesn't back up his argument with any real points that con doesn't rebut well.
