  • 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.

  • No we should't

    Kids are cooped up in homework that it might take hours (it takes me one hour)!! Well..Let's see...You have 30 min. To do morning work...Like 3 mins. To use the restroom...Then 1 hour of a special (art,P.E.,Music,library), then a test...Lunch/lunch recess...Then Writing...Reading...AND THEN YOU LEAVE! Well that's 8 hours and 30 minutes! Then you get home and then you have homework...Plus one hour equals....9 HOURS AND 30 MINUTES TOTAL OF LEARNING!!!

    I say no!

  • Yes, students should have homework

    Homework helps students prepare for tests and help learn skills for life. They should also have homework so they learn more things such as math and reading. They need to know that it teaches disapline. They also might need to remember things better so they do good on tests and assignments.

  • 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.

  • 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 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.

  • No homework please

    I'm one of those people who doesn't believe in homework. Homework just gets people stressed out. Just in first grade alone 20-30 minutes of homework can be prone. A test was taken on some high schoolers the one highschooler who didn't do homework took a test and did 69% better then other classmates what does that tell you about homework. Some parents are asking their kids teachers to say "no" to homework. More schools across the country are cutting back nightly homework. Zach Masterman is 15 years old. After putting in a full day of school and after school activities then he has to do a whole fulfillment of math and other homework. That is why I hate homework so much.

  • Students should not have homework

    I think students should not have homework because how much stress they have can make them lose sleep which can make them have bad grades which can make them have even more stress. Another reason why students should not have homework is because how much time it can take some students hours to finish homework so then they can not hang out with their friends and it can harm someones health because all you do is sit indoors and do homework so it can make you obese because you just sit their.
    That is why i think we should not have too much homework and we should not have homework because it causes stress,it can cause health issues,and it takes to long to finish.

  • I think homework should not be allowed

    I think homework should not be allowed. One reason I think homework should not be allowed because it makes kids stressed out and tired. It also makes them hate school more. In an article it says ''kids are being put in uneeded preasure and taking precious family time .'' In 2002-03 school year, students ages 6 to 17 were doing twice as much homework as in 1981-82. People say too much homework causes students worry too much and lose sleep and students may not learn from extra homework. Also a teacher in Pennsylvania states ''it`s too much. I`m getting homework sent to me at 12 at night or sometimes even later.''Kids may spend sunny days indoors working on a laptop for hours when they can be outside enjoying the sunny weather. In conclusion i think teachers need to stop giving kids homework but they can have them read like twenty minutes a night.

  • NO homework schools!

    People should get rid of homework. Homework makes kids lose friends because of how much they get. It can also make kids lose sleep. Kids have 7 hours of working at school it makes no sense to give them more. While the parents get to do nothing. A mom in canada went to court about how kids have to much homework and she won. Parents are arguine with schools to get homework out of schools should ban homework.

  • Homework is just Stupid and Signifigant

    Is homework bad? Yes it was hard and stupid and it never helped! It doesn't even help you it just gives stress and it doesn't even make you smarter its just gives you a reverse siycolige of what you know it dose not help you in the future. Homework SUCKS!!!

  • We should not have homework.

    I think we should not have homework.We have 8 hours of class and at the end of the day we have loads of homework.It dose not bring any good math or what ever back. I think teachers should stop giving out paper like worksheets. We should have time to play with friends and hang out instead of doing homework all the time. I believe that homework has no time in doing it. I know we don't lean anything from it.
