Homework is the only way of self studying at home so that encourages students to undertake independent learning which they will be required to do when they get to University.

Pro

Homework does help learning, but nowadays there is too much pressure being put on passing tests and turning in homework, instead of actual learning. Therefore I say that we outlaw homework, so that people learn how to learn again.

It probably take much time to do finish homework, but as the reward, teachers usually contain how well did you do for homework to give grades. By doing homework, we could train the skill of spending time properly because you should divide time well to do both homework and what you really want such as playing soccer. Then, the skill would help you to adjust your schedule. Also your getting many things by doing homework; according to previous debate with the same topic on 'www. debate.org', homework help student to make flexible schedule.

Homework is taking too much time out of people's lives and driving them into breakdowns. I would not call this an effective time usage.

But you should think about people who do not study at all unless there is nothing to do. what if they don't have homework so that they can use there time on whatever they want, do they really spend time properly? homework for them is minimum study time at their home.
