Us parents think that with all the after school activities are children are very stressed out about there homework and have very little time to do there homework. And sometimes the teacher does not teach the subject well enough for the kids to understand, and aswell as not enough time do there homework
In the European union the maximum amount of time someone is allowed work is 48 hours every week. A student get about 38 hours of school every week and about 18 hours of homework. 38 + 18 = 56. So students have to work 8 more hours than a working adult working at the legal limit.
Students get just the right amount of homework. If students got too much homework, they would not be able to finish it. Rather, the current system is acceptable and it has worked for countless generations in the past. Kids do not get too much neither too little homework from their teachers.
Students do not get too much homework, in fact when I was a student in high school about two years ago I do not remember getting very much homework at all. We had the odd ball project to tackle here and there but aside from that our homework was only what we didn't finish in class.
No students do not get to much homework, in fact they seem to be receiving to little homework. Over the years kids have been coming home with less and less home work and more time to goof off and not have to pay attentions to their studies. This is helping to create an education problem.
School-age children don't have too much homework. Extra assignments outside of class helps keep kids busy and off the streets. Homework also lets teachers assess how well students do without a teacher watching their every move. Homework fosters independent thought and quality work when a student puts his or her entire effort into a project or assignment.
Children and parents alike need to realize that life is not easy. Homework is important and there aren't many people in academia that would disagree with me. Life is challenging and it's essential for students to do homework. It's not a debate topic anymore. The case has be solved. That homework you hate so much is essential. It's okay, student or not, we all have to do things we don't particularly like, to get along in life. Homework may be on of them, but guess what, if you buckle down and really work hard, you're going to better of, merely mentally, if you don't and who knows, maybe you'll even be lucky enough to become successful.
Homework doesn't have to take a long time, but students don't get enough to do. My children are three grades apart in elementary school, yet homework takes my son 5-10 minutes and my daughter about the same. In order for our children to be competitive academically and globally, they need better education and better quality work, but not necessarily more work.
