I think that children should have homework MOST days. I say most days because it isn't fair to get homework on vacations like winter or summer break. I don't even think that children should get homework on days that are only one day off. Other than that children need homework everyday, it is good practice. It is especially good when you are studying something difficult, homework can help, it is practicing the topic you are learning and improve your skills on it. Even though I personally don't enjoy it, it is a HUGE help to me!!!
Do your kids just dream off in school, and not pay attention or learn anything? Kids don't actually learn until they show it. In school, kids just play around. In school, students just copy, the whole class does everything together, all the time. Homework is needed so kids can show they can do it on their own.
In my opinion, yes children should have homework. I am a child myself in sixth grade in the magnet program. I used to love coming home and my mother would help me with my homework. Now homework is a bit more challenging, but it increases your knowledge, it helps you to understand what you are learning in class. Doing homework is more pro active than watching cartoons for hours. Children complain about staying up all night to do homework, but stay up all night watching cartoons. Yes it may interfere with family activities, sports, or chores, but the grade that children get is more worth it.
I looked through the NO side. While I was doing so, I saw many errors. Most of the NO side complain that they have sports to do first, did it not occur to you that studies come first? If you fail school, the coach will (most likely) not let you play in that tournament/ game/ meet. As for the grammar errors on the NO side, I believe that many could use some Language Arts homework.
1. It helps you learn it better.
2. It helps you understand it better.
3. It tests you if you were listening while the lesson is being taught.
4. It gives you problems to solve to help you get better at it.
5. Homework is a good way to involve a child's family in the learning process.
One of the ways a child learns is to review the things that they learned at school. If you learned multiplying matrices in one day, then even if you had questions, you wouldn't remember as much. Also your class would go a lot slower because you would need to know it to move on.
Yes, children should recieve some homework, but the workload should be less than 2 hours each night, as teachers and parents are constantly pushing for them to join in extracurricular activities and spend time with family. Without this time, it can add to stress and emotional detachment from their family.
Students should have homework because it prepares them for high school and college. If we don't prepare them in middle school and elementary school they will be more overloaded in high school and college because they didn't expect it. Long Live Homework! Plus, if we don't have homework, kids will go home and forget everything they learned.
American children are failing in school and in obtaining higher education. Children need to be taught early on that life is not piece of cake. It should be reinforced in their schools by demanding higher performance and that includes giving them daily work that they are expected to complete.
We are raising stupid children compared to other countries and we are paying the price.
Homework adds much more knowledge and it's a good review of what you have learnt at school.Also if you manage your time correctly you would still have a good 4-5 hours of free time before you sleep.Homework prevents last minute studying and can often give you better marks in school
Kids need time you relax and unwind, if kids have to spend hours on homework then they are going to stay up late causing lack of sleep and making the brain not as capable to learn as usual. They should be able to hang out with friends. Kids need social time.
Having more and more homework creates stress for the child and tires them out . Personally my child doesn't have a lot of time for homework so she's under a lot of stress to get it done correctly and on time . So I think children should not have a lot of homework . It's evil.
Homework is completely and utterly stupid and I won't put up with it!!!! I think kids should have more after school time. When they do have the after school time to play with their friends and family, they can relieve themselves the stress of school because from my experience, school can be quite stressful.
Kids are too busy doing sports. I think that kids should not have homework. Kids need to be free. They need to not have homework over the summer or over the winter and over spring break they need to be just free. They have no right to make kids have homework!
Kids should not get homework because homework makes them not want to go to school and learn, it makes then give up and they don't get help. That's why I agree that kids should not get homework, because they get seven hours of school why get more hours to do homework?
Children should not have to do homework because it causes stress to students and parents. Kids should be outside playing sport, keeping healthy and having a social life, not staying inside for 1-2 hours doing homework. Homework kills the bond between a kid and his/her parents. It wastes valuable time that youre going to want back when they're older. I believe that homework should be entirely banned or at least optional.
Many children in the world are suffering from stress. Stress may be caused when they get too much homework and are expected to do it in a certain time and from many parents, expected to get every single question right. This puts the child under a lot of pressure. As a student, I have been through this time where I was always grumpy, moody, depressed and tired. I am sure that no one wishes to be like that.
For the last year I have been depressed 90% of the time.
All homework does is make us stressed and take up time. I have considered suicide multiple times and I don't think ANY child should get to that point. On top of that, I have not learnt anything from homework and all it does is make me more stressed. In fact I happened to stumble across this page as I was looking for persuasive articles for a homework assignment. As I was reading this, I was crying and I completely agree with every other child who has voted against it. Also, homework is very hard to manage when you have other extra-curricular activities. I do ballet three times a week and I come home at 7. After that all I can do is eat and sleep. This means I have 2 school days to catch up and 2 days which are, consequently, meant for relaxing. Did I mention I'm 12?
Children are at school for 6 to 7 hours and as soon as we get home we have to do more it is stupid. I think if teachers want children to have homework well why won't they just keep us in at lunch simple children go to school to learn and when we get home we want to relax and some children have no time for homework as they have chores when they get home
Kids can gain stress and mainly don't get enough time to bond with family. Homework is also worry some for parents. They have to stop what they are doing to help. Its tough and kids just need to be able to come home stress free. Kids love being able to have fun at school. Like reports for example. So much stress and worries that they cant think! I think no homework! I'M TAKING A STAND!
