• It Is Very Necessary

    Homework is very necessary. It is a good tool used in school that improves students' understanding of what they learned in class. Homework is practice and practice makes perfect. Homework allows students to do work on their own without in class guidance and figure things out. This helps them learn better.

  • Homework is very necessary.

    Homework is important. It practices our skills we learned in school. Now I agree that teachers shouldn't be that hard on homework but homework is very important. Without homework there is no use to go to school. You are not going over the concept you learn. Education is important to the world. Remember practice makes perfect.

  • Just do you homework... It isn't that hard!

    I looked at most of you comments that disagree and I have some of them and I answered, either how to prevent them or a way to fix it. The fist on is someone said you stay up late to finish, well first of all it doesn't take most people THAT long to do their homework, and second of all you can do you homework when school finishes, so if you don't get something you still have another day (because in my school you usually have 2 days to finish you homework) to ask your teacher to help explain the problem your stuck on. A lot of you people said stress is another reason that we shouldn't do homework. Well I disagree, totally. The same thing I said for the first reason is the same reason for this! Just do it in the day your assigned it and if you don't get it, ask a teacher so you guys debating, wont get stressed! Another one of you guys said I have sports so I don't have time to do my homework. Well just do your homework in the morning and when your done... Play sports. Well that about it!

  • Homework is necessary

    Or else kids who hate studies will not touch books .Only because their teachers scold or something the complete their assignments because of these home works they atleast go through the topic... But over home work is not because it creates lot of stress for kids who are sensitive ones

  • Homework is necessary for good grades.

    In middle school I switched over from private to public school. I was used to staying up till 11:00 trying to finish that last problem or paper. The public school that I went to did not believe in homework so I thought it would be a nice break. However, my grades started dipping because of the lack of practicing the concepts that we were learning in class. Because of that I realized that a contained amount oh homework is necessary for you to really understand the concepts that are being taught.

  • Homework is great

    Homework. Many people only just need to look or hear the word to shut their brain off, but they do not realise how important it is. Homework teaches us responsibility, time management and organisation skills and it helps us recognise our own diverse talents. It also helps teachers understand what level their students are on.

  • Yes iT IS.

    Firstly, Schoolwork is important because it helps students to practice and recap on what have been taught in class. From my experience, during Science classes, the teacher often takes up 80% of the lesson time saying or teaching things that you may understand in class. The problem with this is that this information that you have learnt or understand in class is being lose quickly after a short period of time, this is where homework comes in. Homework helps students to explore and to gain deeper understand in details of the subject where classroom time cannot permit us to do so due to time constraint. Homework helps to recap as well as to practice the points that are taught in class so that the brain can digests. This allows the memory to be retained in brain for a longer period of time. Therefore Schoolwork is important to assist students in their learning.

  • Homework is an unnecessary waste of time

    Newsflash parents and teachers, having to do work on our free time is not motivating! It does not help us learn. I'm pretty sure if you had to do homework after work you would be pretty upset. School to us kids (and mind you I'm in college right now) is equivalent to a stressful job that some parents have. Homework must be banned in the United States if you want to see any positive changes to the education of the youth.

  • No homework no one likes it

    1: its stressful
    2: its useless
    3:no one likes it
    4: it dosent improve test scores
    5:it takes away family time and sports
    6:cost go up (due to all the paper wasted)
    7:kids worry about not getting it done, and tend to have parents do it for them.
    8:kids already go to school for 8hours a day learning.
    9:most kids don't even understand it or don't want to.
    10:and I presonly hate it,
    it is not necessary at all.

Donkeys dont like to walk and they also dont like to do homework because home work is necessary so they are donkey shame shame poor little duffer donkeys ho ho ho ho!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Kids have enough chores to do at home

    Kids have more than enough things to be doing at home that teaches them responsibility let alone doing homework in which they don't even know half of what they are doing. They then need parents to basically teach them how to do their work when the teachers get paid to teach.

  • Recent studies in Australia have shown this to be false.

    The latest studies showed that homework has no benefit at all in children up to 3rd grade, very poor benefits in 4th-6th graders, minimal benefits in 7th-9th graders and reasonable benefits in 10th-12th graders.

    Why do we put students and families through all the stresses of homework for such a poor gain. Surely time could be better spent developing other life skills.

  • It is not necessary.

    I think that education and school in general is something that has not changed very much as time has gone on. Because of this, there are aspects to it that really do need to be changed. We would do well to trim the fat of education and to get rid of homework.

  • Homework does not help kids at all !!!!!!!

    Why do kids have homework? It does not help. We should get rid of it!πŸ˜₯β˜ΉοΈπŸ˜ πŸ˜‘πŸ˜ŸπŸ˜žπŸ˜”πŸ˜•πŸ˜–πŸ˜«πŸ˜©πŸ˜€πŸ˜±πŸ˜¨πŸ˜―! At school we do a website called xtramath and it is very stressful! None of the kids like it we all hate it. Pleeeeeaaaseeeee! Rid of homework! I beg you get rid of it! Pleeeeaaase!

  • Homework is a obstacle in the path of student's all round development.

    Education is for all round development of the human life. So education is not limited in the textbook and in the school's curriculum. Today a student needs to learn a lot of things as the need of society. So he/she must be given sufficient time and opportunity. They should be motivated for self motivated work.
    But homework is a obstacle in this path. It doesn't give time the students even to think independently. It makes students dull and unsocial. It keeps away the students from creative activities. As a result most of the students can not be success in highest level of examination in future like IAS and IPS.
    So it is the time to make decision for both parents and teachers (and the schools).

  • Say No to homework

    Children should go home and have fun after a long day of learning. Homework should be banned because it just isn't useful and wastes time. Homework is pointless because kids do enough work in school and they don't need more. When they come home they want to chill out, hang out with friends, or do something. Kids are in school for 8 hours a day doing work, other than lunch and recess. Many kids agree because it is stressful and they stress out till they finish their homework. Until the last second. There is no point in homework. It takes away from spending time with family. Many kids don’t get home from school from 3:30 to 6 pm and won't have time to do anything. Many kids stay up really late to finish their homework which can affect their sleep and on top of that they have to wake up early and go to school which can cause their brains to not focus.

  • No homework means No homework

    Homework is basically forcing students to go home after a stressful day of school and activities and do pointless homework. Teachers should be teaching these things in class, not making the students learn it themselves. It's preventing children from having a healthy amount of sleep and activities to keep them fit and active. How is a student supposed to do 3 to 4 hours of homework, study for tests and quizzes, play sports, get involved in the community, eat food with nutritional value, and get a good amount of sleep, all in one day? That's not possible. The amount of stress homework causes kids is ridiculous, especially when they're already under so much pressure to get into a good college and do well in school, along with making friends and staying active.

It's hard to give an answer. Most homework is just busy work (such as solve these 50 almost identical math problems). However, I've found research papers and hands-on projects, especially group projects, to have a lot of educational value. I would have liked to give up some of the generel education classes and their overwhelming amount of busy work for some extra internships, though.

If homework is given, it shouldn't consume all of the student's time, because I get about 4-5 hours of sleep due to huge quantities of homework. Personally, I would rather spend my time studying what was done in class than doing homework. That way, I'd understand what was done in class, I would still have some free time and I wouldn't be so sleep deprived.

Homework is for stupid people who can't think for themselves.
