We should not have homework because we already go to school for six and a half hours a day. We get enough work done while we are at school. When we are at home we are not focused enough to do good work. When we are at home we want to do something else. The only homework we should do at home is studying because everybody has their own way to study and it is hard to do.

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 :)

Firstly Teachers give homework because it is a way to study. The homework you get is most often related to the lesson you had that day and if you didn't understand in the lesson you go back to the teacher ask him or her and then do the homework as a practice because remember practice makes perfect. Basically you might not like homework because its stressful but that probably is because you didn't understand it. Homework helps remind you of the things that have been taught at school and some people prefer going home and working by themselves with music or food without the distractions of their friends or peers. Some also learn extra while doing homework as they don't listen in class so doing homework helps a lot of people in different ways. According to The Guardian "Spending more than two hours a night doing homework is linked to achieving better results in English, maths and science, according to a major study which has tracked the progress of 3,000 children over the past 15 years."
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.

Why do we have homework? Education is important and helps us to be successful in life, but what is the reason for doing work after school when you have been working hard all day. Therefore, I feel homework isn t necessary because it is stressful to students and that leads them to dropping out of school, it strains on the parent/child relationship, and if a student doesn t complete their homework they might fail one or more classes.

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

Well you just have to balance it out. if you have a homework due in for like a week later than you dont have to do it all at once! Just do half of it and then do the rest later. Poeple need to know how to manage their time because then everything will get stressful. You said parents get stressful on homework but they get stressful on everything like doing the dishes, cleaning the house up , your grades. Some schools even have a system where if you dont do your homework it can affect your grades like for example i do ART GCSE and my art teacher said if we dont do our homework then it will affect our grades as it is one of the ways to assess our performance. The parents dont need to get involved into homework because its set for them and the child has to understand the homework otherwise how else are they going learn?

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!
