Should children have homework during the summer (yes), or should they be given a break (no)?

  • Yes children should have homework during summer

    Children should have homework during the summer so that they don't forget the things they learned during the year. Children should receive a packet to do over vacation that will review what they know and teach them new things. This will be better so that teachers won't have to review after vacation and they can just teach new things.

  • Yes, reinforcement is critical.

    As much as kids might hate it, a little bit of work over the summer break would greatly benefit kids. Learning is a process that must be constantly refreshed and over the course of a three month break, kids do not retain many of the things that will be necessary for progress.

  • You're dumber in the summer.

    Yes, children should have homework during the summer, because children lose a lot of their learning in the summer. Many parents just leave their children to fend for themselves in the summer. They are left to play in the dirt while Mom smokes and collects welfare checks. Homework would be able to help these children do better for the next generation.

  • Yes, kids should have summer homework.

    I think kids should have homework during the summer. I do not really see any good reason why children should not have any homework during the summer. I think that letting kids have homework during the summer is a good way to teach them how adult life will be like since there are no summer vacations.

  • Like I mean come on,its summer. Why do we need to study.

    No. They shouldn't. They need a break. Summer is not an opportunity for kids to be more stressed out than they are. If we had to do it, it would be unfair for kids because they have to study one a non school day. If kids want to learn over the summer, let them! If kids want to have fun over the summer, let them! That choice is not up to parents, teachers, and instructors. Weekends and holidays are more than just sitting at a desk and doing some garbage. The rule of weekends and holidays are: No school, no homework, no learning, no classes, no waking up early. You're free! Weekends and holidays are for family, friends, and fun! Not studies!

  • Absolutely not. Just... NO

    It is not fair to make kids and adolescents work over vacation time. Yes, we do get breaks over Christmas and Easter and other things, but that's not always enough. Some kids have different situations and require more down-time because of a disability or what-have-you. But do schools care? No. And some schools even assign homework over Christmas and Easter. It's just not fair to have a summer "vacation" even though we are being forced to work.

  • No no no no no no no

    Just no. You already know why. We deserve a vacation after all that hard work! Doing more hw during summer makes us get alought of stress. We don't deserve this that's why no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no

  • Let kids be kids

    No, Kids should not have summer homework. This is why, Kids already have enough work and their minds need a rest because it is constantly working. Kids need to spend their summer being active, playing sports and using their imagination. During the school year kids spend 6 hours in school and more after school doing homework. This is their vacation and need to not have homework.

  • Why do we need more homework

    In school we work our buns off 8 hours a day 5 days of the week 9 months of the year and for 12 years(excluding college) and we usually get about 3-5 pages of homework for each class. It wouldn't be fair for us to get 10x more work over our 3 month break doesn't it.

  • It is Stressful and Annoying

    Summer is supposed to be a vacation, not a opportunity for teachers to stress student even more than they already are. If students want to learn over the summer, then let them! If they want to relax, then let them! This should be up to the student, not up to parents and teachers.

  • No, children should be given a break

    If students were given homework over the break, there would be a lot more stress, and children wouldn't like summer as much, because they would have to do work, even when they're not at school. This would be unfair for students, and they are more likely to cheat on the papers

  • Children should be given a summer break.

    Children should be given a summer break from their schooling. They are children and should be allowed to be children. They should not be overloaded year-round with responsibility. Even elementary school students are burdened with several hours worth of homework per night. Also, the poverty stricken school systems would not be able to accommodate the year round operations costs with out a tax increase.

  • No, children do too much homework during the school year and shouldn't have summer work to do, as well.

    No, children should not be required to do additional schoolwork during the summer; many children are already overburdened with homework during the school year, and too much of their time and efforts are devoted to strictly academic concerns. The importance of play, exercise, and free exploration of the world should not be overshadowed by structured assignments.
