I believe that schools should give homework because students need to review the things they learned. If I was a teacher, I don't care if they finish it at home, on the bus, before class, midnight, or the moment they get their homework. So I am supporting homework because it shows the teacher that the student actually cares.

Homework is vital to a student's growth. However, it should not be responsible of the entire management of the school to assign homework, but instead a teacher per class.
A teacher's responsiblilty is to help a student comprehend a certain subject, by reviewing and learning in class as well as giving out assignments. A teacher is specifically taught to help a student learn the course. If the entire management of the school were to devote their time and effort to assigning projects and worksheets, it would:
  • put unqualified people in the position of giving a student homework which would most likely not be helpful towards the needs of the student(s)
  • force management in the school to stop what they are doing to spend their time and effort designing the work ethic of the year rather than focus working on the area that they were assigned, such as a secretary


I hope my play on words will win a vote towards my argument. Thank you.

First of all, the assumption that homework reinforces what students have learned also assumes that homework is only given when students have already learned a concept. This is a paradigmatic assumption. You may have students in class that did not learn the given material. Should they be then excused from the homework?
Completing homework shows that the student cares? What does he care about? Getting good grades? Learning new concepts? Pleasing the teacher?

Reasons for voting decision: Poor debate, more rounds would have been nice. CA goes to Con simply because he gave more convincing arguments compared to the Pro's arguments.
