  • Students should not have homework.

    Students that have homework are getting assignments that are basically reviews of what they already have done in school. The bright side is extra practice. But that practice can be done at school if the teachers offer time for them to finish it at school. Then the kids will have free time at home!

  • Homework is vital

    In my honest opinion, homework is an extremely important factor in a students success. Some people even consider the homework more important than the exams. I feel homework is a good thinf because it will keep the content in the students mind outside of school and give them practice for upcoming tests.

  • Students Should Have Homework

    Yes, students should have homework. Without homework, students may forget much of the course material that was taught during the school day. Homework works as a reinforcement of material so that this forgetting does not occur. To take homework away would be to remove this tool of reinforcement to the detriment of students.

  • Yes, it teaches discipline.

    Yes, students should have homework, because they do not have anything else to do. Most students spend all of their time playing video games. Parents do not do a good job of steering their children towards other things, and they just allow this. Homework gives children something productive to do outside of school.

  • Yes, students should have homework.

    I believe that students should have homework. Homework helps children practice what they have been taught during the day. It gives them a sense of responsibility. They must organize their time to make sure homework is done before sports activities or watching TV. Schools just have to be careful that they don't give too much homework.

  • Homework teaches self discipline.

    Self discipline is necessary for success in adult life. Homework helps children to prepare for the responsibilities of a full time job. There are too many children that have been able to simply walk away from school or shirk responsibilities thanks to the concessions made by teachers and school board members. School is preparation for the regimented responsibilities of adult life and homework is an integral part of that preparation process.

  • Without home work, no study.

    I feel that atleast till children reach an age when they realise their responsibilities, they should be given home work, or else the importance of studying after returning home from school will not be there. This is one way of making them open their books and revise what was taught to them in school that day.

  • Good for college

    Kids should have home work because it makes it easier to learn and good to review.Also i t helps later in life because in college they won't be ready for all the homework happening there.Also if that kid wants to be a teacher they don't know how to make home work!

  • Students should not have homework.

    Studies have shown that homework does nothing for the child and adolescent brain. If a student learns the material in class and does well on the topic, the student cannot learn anything new from a pile of paper. And, if the student has trouble with the material in class, they need the teacher's help more than they need a piece of paper's help. Studying and projects are a totally different topic. Studying actually helps the human brain remember material (studying should be only for quizzes, tests and if the child finds the material interesting.) And for all you homework loving parents out there, why don't you consider the kids' opinions instead of deciding for them

    Students should not have homework. Students are in the classroom for eight hours a day and should be able to do any work necessary within those eight hours. Sending a child home with four or more hours of homework to do is not right both for the student and the parents.
