• Homework is bad!!!

    Homework is time consuming and it takes up all children's playtime! Imagine this. You come home from a big day at school and guess who's going to greet you home! IT'S HOMEWORK!!! Some children spend 4-6 hours on homework and assignments sometimes! Thats what happened to me 38 years ago!

  • Homework is bad for children

    Homework is very bad for children because all the kids go to school and read for 8-10 hours.When they will return back they will get a lot of homework which gives stress to the kids. If they will get homeworks they can't relax and go and enjoy with their friends.They wull finish their homework for 2-3 hours and they can't spend time with their family which makes their parents stress too. So I think homework is bad for children....

  • Homework is not good for teens kids mentally and physically.

    Lack of sleep can actually can give you conditions such as heart disease, obesity, and high blood pressure. It can give kids stress and migraines. I believe that children should be assign homework if they have trouble with the subject. Teachers can personally hand them out to struggling students. They can give them about 5 questions and can give them examples of the assignment. Children get in trouble for sleeping in class, well if you didn't assign the homework from last night maybe I we as students could get a 8-10 hour sleep or eat dinner. Kids need extra time to play outside to burn calories not gaining weight by eating a unhealthy snack while doing homework. Going outside with your friends or relaxing on the couch from that long and tiring day. Kids only have a 2 day break from school, some kids have only 1 day to just relax (for religious reasons). This sounds like they have a job. Sleep is the number 1 thing kids need so their bodies can grow healthy and strong.

  • It stresses children

    They do not have enough time for extra clases or for being with their parents also schools are lending to much homework to kids and cause them to get stressed and not paying attention in class because they do not sleep the time they should sleep por paying attention in class

  • They Get Stressed

    Many kids get stressed when they do homework. That could lead to issues in the future, and issues now. They also need free time to relax and hand out with their friends. Even kids need to relax, I know it's hard to believe, but they do. It's true i'm serious.

  • Kids get too much homework

    It can affect kids health if done for more than 2 hours. It can also prevent family time and makes parents feel like this is a daily stress routine. Last it does not improve grades. If you know how to do it, why have to do extra? It doesn't make sense.

  • I think homework is bad.

    It tends to cause stress, time-consuming, and is only proven to help in the last 3 grades in grade school. Also, having more than 2 hours of homework is proven to lower test scores. Parents find this as an everyday obstacle to overcome. It also prevents any family time from happening.

  • Homework is boring. Don't get me wrong on that.

    You could be outside on a trampoline and get exercise than wasting your time. Say you have a baseball or a baseball game and you have homework on that same day, THEN you're in a hurry to get it done and if you don't get it done in time you could be missing your sports games, or your exercise time.

  • Stress and depression

    Homework constantly stresses me out. We kids usually have homework depending on the assignment or subject. I personally have experience. I have had tons of homework this past week. I think we should have longer classes on the particularly hard subjects found throughout schools. Such as, math & science. So instead of assigning home work lets make these classes longer

  • Homework sucks so much

    It makes kids stressed and depressed h h h h h h h h h h h h h h h h h h h h h h h h h h h h h h h h h h h h h h h h h h h h

  • There is no legitimate argument against HW

    Honestly, the only reason that someone would say that homework is bad is because they want to get out of doing it. The argument that it takes away from a child's playtime is ridiculous, because the entire purpose of education in to educate not to make sure that children are having fun. I understand the argument that it is wrong to give children 8 hours of homework, but if you give a child half an hour of homework max then they will never develop the skills required to become a competent and diligent adult.

  • Nooooo wayy hose'

    Homework is needed in schools because it lets children take out the skills they learned at school to apply and practice them at home. So it sharpens their skills and makes them better at the material then it would be without homework. And that will be my opinion! :) :)

  • Well, according to Stanford:

    A Stanford researcher found that too much homework can negatively affect kids, especially their lives away from school, where family, friends and activities matter.

    "Our findings on the effects of homework challenge the traditional assumption that homework is inherently good," wrote Denise Pope, a senior lecturer at the Stanford Graduate School of Education and a co-author of a study published in the Journal of Experimental Education.

    The researchers used survey data to examine perceptions about homework, student well-being and behavioral engagement in a sample of 4,317 students from 10 high-performing high schools in upper-middle-class California communities. Along with the survey data, Pope and her colleagues used open-ended answers to explore the students' views on homework.

    Median household income exceeded $90,000 in these communities, and 93 percent of the students went on to college, either two-year or four-year.

    Students in these schools average about 3.1 hours of homework each night.

    "The findings address how current homework practices in privileged, high-performing schools sustain students' advantage in competitive climates yet hinder learning, full engagement and well-being," Pope wrote.


    If it's from 2014 it's solid in my book.

  • Homework is not bad for children.

    Homework is not an issue when it comes to education. It allows the student to make a personal connection to the subject outside of the classroom. The problem lies with the amount a student receives and the amount of time they have to complete the assignment. Students should be able to work at their own pace. We're all different, which means that we all have our own way of attaining knowledge.

  • Homework that is beneficial is good.

    It has been scientifically proven that repetition increases memory. Students go to school and learn a lesson. How can that attained knowledge be solidified? Homework. Homework provides a crucial review to students before they forget everything they've learned. If they forget, then what was the point of the lesson in the first place?

    Homework is not very time consuming, unless you take accelerated classes. That being said, if as a student, you don't want to do a lot of homework, don't take accelerated classes. Even with accelerated classes, if you can manage your time wisely, then you will be fine. Those that procrastinate find it difficult to keep up.

  • Homework allows a student to reflect on what they have learned.

    Homework is assigned to analyze the information given in class. It is used to see how well a student has comprehended the information. If the student does not do well on the homework and used all THEIR effort in the assignment that only means the teacher needs to reteach the information the students that did not understand. Homework is there to help.

Homework is just a small bit of time everyone needs to spend for education. Then you have the rest of the day to do whatever you want. There is nothing wrong about it. You should study with concentration for at least 2 hrs every day.
