• Homework is useful for a number of reasons.

    Homework helps students understand what they learned at school that day. It reviews what they learned,and it improves your child’s thinking and memory. It helps your child develop positive study skills and habits that will serve him or her well throughout life. Homework encourages your child to use time wisely. It teaches your child to work independently. Homework teaches your child to take responsibility for his or her work. It allows your child to review and practice what has been covered in class. It helps your child to get ready for the next day’s class. Homework helps your child learn to use resources, such as libraries, reference materials, and computer Web sites to find information. It encourages your child to explores subjects more fully than classroom time permits. It allows your child to extend learning by applying skills to new situations. It helps your child integrate learning by applying many different skills to a single task, such as book reports or science projects. Homework helps parents learn more about what your child is learning in school. It allows parents to communicate about what he or she is learning, and
    It encourages parents to spark your child’s enthusiasm.

  • Homework teaches responsibility

    Homework is work that the teacher assigns you to do out of school or paid work done at home. I strongly feel that home work is beneficial because home work teaches responsibility. When children get older, they will be organised when they are working or in high school so that they don’t feel pressured with the amount of workload they receive may it be home work or anything else. They will be used to being responsible and it will not startle them when they start getting work to do. In January 2006 a poll was conducted to see what parents thought of their children doing homework.The results showed that 57% of parents agree that their children should get home work and the teachers assigned them the right amount of schoolwork.

  • Homework is a way to re-enforce learning at home.

    If homework is not assigned, do you really think kids will review notes and study on their own? Most kids will not. Homework gives students resources to study from as well as practice to keep memories fresh in the minds of young students.
    However, the trick is to only assign homework that is meaningful. Busy work will promote moans and groans from the students. If the homework is going to help the child better understand the topic, then it needs to be present in a positive learning environment.

  • Yes, homework is necessary for learning.

    While homework is often frowned upon by schoolchildren, it, in a way, creates a longer school day, and expands the learning experience. It also encourages students to learn on their own, to dedicate themselves, and to study. This self-motivation is very necessary to learn for later going on to college, as well as the workplace. It's important to learn how to do self-directed study, and homework is one way to accomplish that.

  • Homework is good.

    As much as kids hate to admit it,
    homework is good for them. Homework
    gives kids a chance to absorb their studies at home in a peaceful environment
    free from the distractions present in school.
    Homework also teaches children discipline and responsibility. I actually think that teachers should give
    students more homework.

  • Homework improves academic achievement

    As long as our educators stress the importance of homework, and the intellectual benefits of homework, I believe this can improve academic achievement. It has become a familiar site of grumbles and groans when homework is assigned, but if the students perspectives about homework can change, then this can bring about more improvement.

  • Homework doesn't affect academic achievement.

    Homework doesn't significantly improve academic achievement, even though many people think so. Though homework has shown to help older students a little if it's given in moderation and students are constantly monitored and given feedback, that's usually not the case. Forcing elementary schoolers to sit through hours of homework after coming home from school when it's not going to help them is just horrible. Instead of helping students learn the concepts, most homework is just useless busy work. Because many schools have decided that homework is necessary, they assign it just to assign some kind of homework, and not because it’s going to help. Also, studies show that spending way too much time doing homework makes test scores lower, not higher. Overall, there’s very little connection between homework and doing well in school.

  • Homework is so boring

    It wastes your time of other stuff that you have to do. You get a lot of work to do at school and then you have to do more work at home and you get so much homework to do it's like the teachers don't care what you have to do

  • Homework is bad

    Homework makes kids really stressed and cranky, it also makes them more likely to get distracted from their homework, and if someone is distracted from homework, then they will most likely be distracted at school. School is boring, so don't make home boring as well. Let kids be kids, and get rid of homework.

  • It takes up time

    We already spent 7 to 8 hours at school a day doing work to you really think we want to come home and do more. We want time with friends and family. We even have chores to do when we get home and i personally have chores it takes about and hour to do them and on top of that i play the piano which takes me 1 hour and 15 minutes a day and after all that its like 8:00 and i got to bed at 9:00 a clock. But right after i play the piano i need time to eat which takes time to prepare the food so its about 9:40 i have 20 minutes to cram like 1 hour of homework in so i dont have tomes for homework and time to hang out with friends either so i dont think we should have homework

  • It Stresses You Out

    Homework stresses you out at home. You might not get the help that you need because your parents might not be home. As a kid you need to be active. I would want to play outside with friends. School should not give out homework, and at the beginning of every day, just review with the class about what you talked about yesterday. The USA has one of the lowest test scores because teachers give out so mush homework. Homework stresses you out and that might effect your test scores. If you work on homework for 3 hours and stay up super late doing it, You will be tired the next morning. Teachers should let off on homework and let kids be kids.

  • Homework adds to the time kids spend working and gives them less time to play

    I get 6 hours of school a day and like that's not enough I get homework afterwards.Homework basically means we don't learn enough in school.Why does school end if we spend our free time doing homework?It's free time, we should do what we want not what teachers tell us to do!Also it's stressful and because of that we spend a lot of time on it giving us less time to play and be kids.Nobody wants that!

  • It Causes Stress.

    Homework may be a way to keep your grades up, but there's not much proof that it helps. Teacher's say that it helps kids understand the material, or not forget what they did that day. But if a student doesn't understand what they're doing, then it's highly unlikely that they'll all of a sudden understand what it means. "But it doesn't do anything! It just causes stress and makes us hate school!" Most parents dismiss this as common homework hater banter. But studies show that your child might have a good point. For elementary schoolers, more than 45 minutes a day and academic success from homework flatlines. One hour and thirty minutes for middle schoolers, and two hours for high schoolers. Just ask a kid, and 60% of the time, they're doing more than is needed. Homework for middle schoolers was actually proven to have a negative effect on test scores, no matter the time. These students already have enough stress in their life, so why add more?
