  • Students should not be given too much homework

    I am a student of 7 and i understand that home works are just a useless work which just eats time. When will they play? They should not be loaded with home work. Just due to these i go to bed at 10 pm or sometimes 10:30 or even 11pm.I am just wanting to know the need of home works.

  • Kids shoulders are weighed down by both bags of homework and stress.

    Personally, I think it's ridiculous to send students home with hours of work in their backpacks. I'm in 7th grade and have know many kids in my grade who say that they had to stay up past their PARENT'S bedtime to finish homework. Studies say that kids should have ten minutes of homework for each grade, so
    -1rst grade: 10 minutes
    -2nd grade: 20 Minutes
    -3rd grade: 30 minutes
    -and so on and so forth.
    But people are complaining about things like: "My fist grader has half an hour of homework every night." "My ten year old stays up till 10 each night to get it all done." If you follow the 10 minutes rule, high schoolers (7th to 11th grade in Canada) should be getting between 70 and 110 minutes of work, but the average of work given is three hours! It burdens them and the heavy bags are actually cause child spines to BEND. We're NOT pack animals, people!!! I also have five exams to do in the space of TWO days. Doesn't that seem like much?

  • Way too much!!

    I am not in middle school, but I have 3 thirty minute presentations and a "Legacy project" for my free time that is not occupied by over 200 minutes of homework a week. Very exciting. Every student wants thirty minute presentations before university. I'm not sure who comes up with this stuff, but it has to stop. Seriously.

  • Yes sir yes

    O say can you see, by the dawn’s early light,
    What so proudly we hail’d at the twilight’s last gleaming,
    Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight
    O’er the ramparts we watch’d were so gallantly streaming?
    And the rocket’s red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
    Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there,
    O say does that star-spangled banner yet wave
    O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

  • Homework is Essential - but too much of it is counterproductive

    I am in senior school in England (equivalent of middle school in the US) and am constantly faced with far too much homework. I have quite a few extra-curricular commitments, but not too many. We get on average 16 pieces of homework per week and on some days we receive 3 pieces of homework set for the next day. The teachers don't care about what all the other teachers are setting us - they just want their work to be done.

    I've noticed that many other arguments against homework have said "it's boring, we hate it" - I think that is a stupid argument - we should be grateful for the education we receive. I don't have a problem with work that supports our learning and what we have been doing in class as long as there isn't too much of it. However, many teachers just set homework because their planners say it's homework night for their subject and the homework is a pointless exercise for the sake of work.

    It's not as if I personally am spending too much time on work - I put effort into everything and it is usually rewarded BUT students who are less able also have to spend a lot of time doing homework.

    The overdose of homework causes stress and lack of sleep. Because of the threat of detention, students choose to stay up late to finish homework. This means that they will be tired in lessons and less likely to concentrate and learn information taught to them. This instead of reinforcing what the students have learnt, actually is negative to the in-school education. And thus my point is made.

  • Homework is just right!

    Kids have a right amount of homework and if we had less then it would not make us any smarter. Some kids might think that's awesome to have less homework but that's not good. When kids grow up every parent wants their children to be smart and have a good job when they grow up.

  • In my case, I'm not overloaded with homework

    I know that there are a lot of students out there who come home to hours of homework. I can't even imagine that! Rarely will I come home to two hours, only if my HW and dance classes collide with each other. Even though there is a lot of homework that is useless and time consuming, I think any worksheet done is at a least a little beneficial. Personally, if I didn't understand a concept at school, I want reassurance. A simple worksheet or book excerpt can help me totally see something in a different light. Homework helps me tell myself, "I understand this and I get it!" I think that if you think you are getting too much homework, you should speak with your teacher. However, if you find yourself doing a "useless" worksheet, rethink it! It just might be clarifying something.

  • No, I think kids have the right amount of homework!

  • Too much homework.

    I have only four classes but I get at least three hours of homework.
    I have a lot of stuff after school, so I don't have time for homework
    after school. My school gets out at two, so you would think that is
    enough time right? Well its not. I still find myself waking up with
    more homework left from the other day, so I say we have to much
    homework for every one.

  • Homework is fun.

    I am a middle schooler, and the government says that middle schools should have 60-80 minutes of homework each night. I only get about 20 minutes. The average kid in middle school gets 20-40 minutes of homework. Even the below average kids don 't get very much homework. I strongly believe that homework is a good thing.

  • No They Do Not

    Students do not have too much homework. I actually think they have an appropriate amount of it. It is able to be done as long as students use good time management and do not wait until the last minute to complete the homework that they were assigned in their class.
