Homework should be banned, because, when homework piles up it can be counter productive to a student's learning. When homework builds up, it stresses the student out and can prevent them from focusing in class, an article from the Washington Post, says that more homework doesn't result in better test scores. They also say, "Whatever the reason, the fact is a significant percentage of elementary school children around the world are struggling with large homework loads. That alone could have long-term negative consequences for their academic success." , further proving my point. This proves that too much homework can prevent students from academically succeeding. Some people might argue that, homework makes sure that kids understand the curriculum, but if it takes their focus away from class, isn't that counter productive? Clearly, there's a link to having too much homework, and not succeeding in class.

Homework is a vital and important part of education. There are only a few hours in each school day not enough time to properly cover all the subjects children need to study. Setting homework extends study beyond school hours, allowing a more flexible education. It also makes the best use of teachers, who can spend lesson time teaching rather than just supervising individual work that could be done at home. Tasks such as reading, writing essays, researching, doing maths problems, etc. are best done at home, away from the distractions of other students. Some people might argue that homework is more stressful and homework can be counter productive for when a student is learning and also behind on homework.
