why we should not have homwork
Debate Rounds (5)
and if we wanted to to do anything the homework will take up all are time than we have nothing to do but sleep and i am sure nobody want that :)
Pam Sammons, a professor of education at Oxford University, said that time spent on homework reflected the influence of the school " whether pupils were expected to do homework " as well as children's enjoyment of their subjects.
Sammons said: "That's one of the reasons Indian and Chinese children do better. They tend to put more time in. It's to do with your effort as well as your ability.

Homework can be stressful enough that it can make students drop out of school because students spend too much time working instead of doing things enjoyable. Things I would rather do are shooting hoops, playing football, riding my bike, or playing games. Sometimes they push themselves to do more and finally they just quit school. The result of that is since they don t have any education they get less paying jobs. Most students think homework is just plain out STUPID and it isn t needed. For example exponents (in math) aren t needed because I asked my mom when she has used them in life and she said never. So all of these things can lead to a child dropping out of school.
Also homework can strain on the parent/child relationship because they argue over doing the homework. For example if the child wants to watch T. V. and the parent wants the child to do their homework, there is a beginning of an argument. They also argue over the way to do the homework because the parent was taught a different way in school. Parents lose their patience because they are having to spend their time helping their child with their homework. For example the parent gets so frustrated that finally they yell at their child. So remember these things can lead to a strain on the parent/child relationship .p.s it will kill your vibe
There are alot of reasons why homework is set! To improve on time management, responsibilities, organization and self esteem! Children take so much pride when they finish homework without any problem and difficulties which will make them feel good about them selves! When students assume responsibility for their homework and complete an assignment, it is only then that they learn to be accountable for their actions.
You said homework isn't needed but that depends on what your career is like, the exponent in maths is needed for accountancy and engineering and the schools aren't that stupid enough to teach stuff that we dont need! School is teaching us things for two things basically- Career and Life. You take Math for example, you knwo how to solve problems without any difficulty the you problem solve problems further on in life, you learn subjects like English you can learn to communicate adn you learn science to help you understand your body and just simple things. If you think what we learn is useless than might aswell not go to school and that might not be a problem as you cna still earn but you just wont have the respect, the knowledge about the most basic things you need to lead a life!
