  • It has to be done

    Like it or not, students need homework. Apart from keeping them occupied with schoolwork to do so they do not slack when they can, homework is also a good way to practise everything the teacher has gone through in school. Students need to understand the aim behind all this suffering of doing homework. Teachers don't do it to make life hard for students. In fact, they do it for the good of students. With more practice comes perfection and students do better in their academic studies, which would benefit them. Life is harder for a teacher actually. Teaching everyday and marking tons of worksheet versus doing homework, which is worse? Teacher would rather spend their time at home watching television and not having to mark mark and mark worksheets students do. The homework they give is for good, and only for good. Pure intentions behind these are also for the good of students.

  • Homework is a devil, I think. However, It is actually useful

    5. Homework teaches your child to take responsibility for his or her work
    6. It allows your child to review and practice what has been covered in class
    7. It helps your child to get ready for the next day’s class
    8. Homework helps your child learn to use resources, such as libraries, reference materials, and computer Web sites to find information
    9. It encourages your child to explores subjects more fully than classroom time permits
    10. It allows your child to extend learning by applying skills to new situations
    11. It helps your child integrate learning by applying many different skills to a single task, such as book reports or science projects
    12. Howework helps parents learn more about what your child is learning in school
    13. It allows parents to communicate about what he or she is learning
    14. It encourages parents to spark your child’s enthusiasm

  • HOMEWORK causes Stress? Imagine WORK.

    The fact that students tire of doing their required activities in both school and at home is already appalling.

    Yes, I concede to the fact that MOST students do tire of doing their homework, but even if we do remove it, does that mean students will tire less? No!

    Pupils exert all their remaining energy after school to play
    non-relevant games, party, gossip, or such. And that - that results to total burnout.

    Students agree that school is difficult. It is supposed to be. SCHOOL PREPARES STUDENTS FOR ADULT LIFE. Imagine living in a rundown apartment, working restlessly to keep your meager life.

    Hardship is key to success. It develops, it improves, it strengthens.

    It's not the work that's the problem, but the people doing the work.

  • Yes, of course

    Homework can help the student do a couple of things
    1) Review, if they get the class lesson.
    Reviewing, especially right after the lesson, is crucial for learning and retention
    2) Help with application skills.
    Life is all about applying what you know to something new.
    3) In case the lesson isn't understood, homework can act as a second lesson and save time during class for more learning opportunities

  • Discipline is an important ingredient for your eventual success.

    Most arguments for why there should no longer be homework center on the premise that homework creates too much stress and occupies too much time. Here's the thing: if you think that your life is going to be free of stress and hard work, you're going to have a rough career.

  • Can't even spell necessary correctly

    Homework is necessary to ensure that students are accurately understanding the material given to them during the school day. I like homework review for AP US History and Accounting, because it helps me catch any mistakes i'm making before a test, that way i can fix it and gain a deeper understanding of the subject

  • Of course it is!

    A necessary part of education. It helps you build on our work. You might as well say we shouldn't study because it's 'boring', also as children we don't need 'free time', you should spend working for your 'free time'. Judging by your writing, I think you need more of it!

  • It helps you.

    It offers practice that you do not gain in school, it enables you to see where you are at with your understanding of the subject, etc. You can do homework whenever you want or you can choose not to do it, but it only messes with your grade and you don't gain any further knowledge. If it stresses you out, then you might need further practice, and if you're overloaded with work, fix it into your schedule and work on it during school also. Even it out. Homework isn't there to torture you, but to prove to yourself that you can do it and help you with your understanding.

  • Lol i quit

    Dear Sir or Ma'am ,

    Do you think that professional athletes get paid too much? Well i do there are many other job that is worth more than entertainment.
    First there's public services jobs like police ,firefighters,and etc.Without them we would have no to enforce laws or put out fires.Without them we won't have much order it will be complete chaos.
    Second what about our Medical field people. Without them we won't have nobody to care for the sick or the injured. People would be dying left and right without them. That's why i think they're important.
    Finally the military. These guys and girls will get thrown down, run around, and beaten before they hit the ground for all of us.They put us first in their line of duty. They gladly put their life on the line to keep us free and safe.
    SO if you say an athlete don't get paid too much just think about what i told you.Sure they provide entertainment but there people that are willing to throw down their life for you.

  • It stresses students

    Homework causes stress, everyone knows it. Some students think they need it to learn, in my opinion, they're wrong. I think that we all know that we hated it and that it's too stressful, if the teachers want students to learn, they should teach it to them during class time, or at least give them time in class to work on it.

  • It is over rated

    It just gives stress and makes students lose there free trime we alreadyt spend 7 hours a day why do we need to add another 2 hours id perfer to do home work in school and instead of home lets do it during luch time. . . . . .

  • It should'ent exist

    First off it should'ent even exist reason is "homework" is just left over work you could have finished in class also teachers use this as a way to get the weight off tere chests because the could'ent stuff the assignment in to the time they had to do it. So i conclude that homework is not nessisary at all.

  • Homework is unneeded.

    Homework is just an extra burden on students that is unnecessary for learning. Learning and education should be kept at the schools. No kids walks back home and says "Oh great! I just spent six hours at school learning stuff I'll probably never use, just to come back home and do more for another hour! Yay!"

  • It causes stress.

    I think it causes you stress, i get homework for most of my classes... (6/7) sometimes i get homework for GYM! The teachers says "For this weekend, i want you guys to go play outside do something athletic!" but then we have pounds of homework to do! For a student like me, i learn better by taking notes.

  • It hampers the development of children

    After school kids need the precious few hours for finding social learning and economic development. The need for homework is less than that of kids being able to learn life lessons, you can learn how to drive or build a computer on paper but you won't actually have anything to show for it.

  • NO It is pointless

    Homework does not help if you know what your going to be when you grow up!! There should be a school for kids for certain jobs they would want. Instead of doing homework that you would NEVER use for a certain job. It is really pointless. Very stressful for kids too, kids are suppose to have fun, not do homework like a business person.

    Say you want to be a zoo owner because your grandparents are one, and you don't really need to know stuff that schools teach you.They should only teach what you need to know for a job,or career you want to be when you grow up. Its really,really,really pointless.

    My guess is that people give kids homework just for money. But they also think kids will need it.

    Schools should ONLY teach kids on what they want to be when they grow up. Not what they want to teach

    People will say that kids won't know what to be when they grow up, well thats why they are kids,they can wait until they are old enough to know what they want to be. They only have jobs when they are 14 and up and own a job at a certain age.

    So if they don't know what to be, they should just go to a regular school.

    And I think a school for kids with a certain job they want to be should be made.

  • It really isn't necessary.

    I think all students hate homework. By now its a fact but I think we hate it for a good reason. I hate having to go home and do homework because I have after school sports that get in the way. We are expected to go home and do homework like we have no life. I have stuff I want and need to do when I get home and homework is just a burden in my way. Like a bump in the road, its annoying. And its not like it helps us in the long run. If we don't understand the subject, what makes you think we will understand it at home. That stuff should be taught properly in class and if you don't get it then stay after school. It also causes stress because its a grade and it will bring your grade down if you forget about it or don't do it.
