V3RSATILE

Pro

to truthfully say how many people do their homework after memorizing and studying hard on the topic. What we actually do is search the internet or take help from elders. So no point in doing homework
Kelisitaan

Con

To claim that homework doesn't do anything is an incorrect statement. Yes, maybe YOUR homework doesn't do anything for you, and yes, bad homework certainly doesn't do anything; however, GOOD homework certainly does help. It reinforces the ideas taught in class.

Just because YOUR teachers give shitty homework doesn't mean that all teachers do, nor does it mean that all homework is useless.

I both agree with Kelisitaan and sympathise with V3RSATILE. Bad homework assignments have a hugely detrimental impact in that they can degrade both the enthusiasm of the child and the trust that the parents have in education. That being said however, a well thought out project can provide an ideal opportunity for the child to show some independence and develop a range of resources. Homework can be structured in such a way as to ensure that even when finding the right answers on the net the core principles are being reinforced and progression is made. Good instructions to adults can also help achieve this, with parents being given information regarding the extent to which the teacher assigning the homework wishes them to help and will provide them with the information regarding methodology that they would require to do this.

There is, as with all things, a balance to be struck here. Homework time should not be excessive but it does provide a wonderful change to give the younger generation to take what they have learnt in school for a test run out in the real world.
