  • Homework should be Abolished

    I think students should not have homework. By law, you can only have students work 3 hours plus the school time, and sometimes homework pushes kids far past that. Now homework is breaking the law. Students should not have homework so they will not feel overworked, get to spend more time with friends and family, and get time to spend on activities and sports.

    First, students should not have homework because they will not feel overworked. This would play a big part in academics. Why? I, and many other students often staying up as late as 10 PM finishing homework, making students (and me) tired in class, where they wouldn’t learn much because of sleep deprivation. Getting rid of homework will give students a better sleep schedule and give students a better chance to learn.

    Second, students should not have homework so they can spend more time with friends and family. I’ve had days when I couldn’t go to an event that I wanted to go to because of homework. Homework takes time, sometimes up to 5 hours. Meaning that a big chunk of the school year you’re just sitting at a desk, answering questions, and when you get home you sit at a table, answering questions and write essays.

    Third, students should not have homework so they can spend time on sports and other activities. Physical activities such as soccer, kickball, dodgeball, baseball, dance, gymnastics, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, swimming, football, basketball, lacrosse, wrestling, karate, track, and much, much more. Those few activities, even though there are more, they all take time and energy. Homework takes up most of our time and energy. I know you might say that we already have enough exercise with P.E., but you only get to do 1 hour in total every week, and a lot of kids don’t do it right.

    In conclusion, it is (hopefully) clear for you to see why students would benefit from having homework removed. Homework was invented in the 1940s, when the US State Standards were at it’s lowest. Homework boosted the scores back up, and we students don’t need it anymore. We students don’t want it anymore.

  • Homework should be abolsihed:

    As a student most dread when going home and seeing our stack of homework that takes up all of their free time. Yes, homework does have some pros, but let's be honest there are mostly cons. Homework’s cons severely outweigh its few pros. Homework doesn't work and should be abolished, and removed from all schools.
    Homework may not be a lot for each of your classes, but when you have 6 classes in high school it adds up. Homework takes almost all of a student’s free time some nights. School time in itself takes up 6.5 hours of the day, only including when you're actually at school, not including other things like waiting at the bust stop or the time it takes to get to and from school. Studies have shown that “70% of high school students say they are ‘often or always stressed by homework’(healthline.Com)”. So let's take away the student’s free time, and we're stressing them heavily by it.
    Students are to receive 10 minutes of homework for each grade, this means that first graders are to receive 10 minutes and twelfth graders should receive 2 hours worth. According to studies teachers give out 3 times as much homework as they should, so for High school students, this could possibly be 6 hours of homework, and since they get off of school at 4:00, they would need to work up until 10:00, even if it’s half of this it takes until 7:00. So it’s a stressor and it takes away the already little free time students, and there are virtually no benefits.
    People on the other side of the argument say “it gives students extra practice, and informs teachers of how well their students are doing.” (debate.Org). This is mostly untrue however, lots of students don’t have time for their homework and don’t do it defeating both of its only two purposes. It can help some students but only the students that already know it, and the ones that don’t get 0’s in the grade book for it. So now the only two arguments for homework have been defeated and don’t work so why do we still have it?
    In conclusion, homework as we see has no benefits, and the very minor ones it does have are still only a 50/50. However not having homework does have benefits because having it has so many costs. Homework steals student’s freetime, gets them stressed which stress itself has a very negative effect on humans both mentally, and physically. Finally not having homework lets students have less stressed lives, more time for family, and more time for sports and other after-school activities, which could help students succeed, but with it only slows student’s down.

  • No time for anything

    School is undoubtedly important to the development of young minds, but they also have their own interests and passions that shouldn't be ignored. Homework hinders the time they have available to do this. The young students also have no time to spend with their families and that can effect the young students minds.

  • Home work sucks

    Kids should be able to play outside and talk with their family not stay up 3 hours for homework and its only worth like 1 point, their is no point of doing it, and if you have a busy schedule and you have 1 day, You have to cancel it.

  • Should homework be abolished

    No,and Yes. I'm a 7th grade student. At my school we have loads of homework, even though it takes away my/our time to do what I want. It actually is fun some times. And it might not help you in some ways. But I do think schools should not give loads of homework. Just 4 sheets of quick exercise a night based on your level in that class.

  • It is important for children.

    Even if children do not like homework it is very improtant for them, if children are not at school they have homework to help them keep up with their class. As a student I realise we have way to much time on our hands and homework is a good way to use all of it.

  • Students need to be challenged.

    Homework should not be overdone, however, students need to be challenged reach beyond what they know. Homework also serves as feedback - if the teachers get a whole bunch of bad homework they will know they did not thoroughly cover that topic enough. Homework makes sure that kids actually can learn something and will keep it in their minds well enough to answer questions on it - they wont forget.

  • Homework is good.

    I think that the idea of aboloshing homework is one of naieve rebellion. Homework is like a whetstone for a knife. It trains the mind while the mind would otherwise be at rest. Homework is a great way to keep a person honed in and learning outside of the classroom.

  • No it should not.

    Homework should not be abolished. Homework is the perfect way for people to learn and continue to learn on the subject even once their are out of school for the day and are at their home. It is how they review the work and better understand what they get and what they don't get.

  • No, homework is important.

    Homework can feel like a drag when you're a student, but it's a really important part of going to school. It helps to retain the information you have learned during the class period. Additionally, though a good student, I was someone who didn't learn as well in a loud environment like the classroom. I really learned better when at home, studying quietly. We all learn in different ways, and homework will help those who learn in a quiet environment, while also reinforcing learned information from the class period.

  • Homework is very important

    I think homework is vital when it comes to school and it truly does help students in the long run. Whether it'd be to help them prepare for a test/exam or simply to understand the material better, homework should never be abolished, nor do I think it honestly it ever will be.

  • Homework Increases Repetition of Good Skills

    I'm not sure why there should be a consideration to abolish homework. I think that at times, teachers weigh homework more heavily than other teachers in the same grade. If anything, homework should have the same difficulty throughout all classes and subjects so that a student does not spend more time on one assignment than another. Besides that point, homework increases the rate of repetition for students to hone in their skills for certain subjects and classes. A common example is when a student has to go over a dozen questions regarding long division when they just learned the subject in school; if they correctly do each question of long division they will understand the subject matter better because they were given homework to increase their understanding.

  • Homework is not a cakewalk

    Homework takes time Away from families friends and activities . This homework can ruin kids time with there families that is important. I know that homework can help people with studies but people should chose what homework is needed for the test at school or if you need extra practice. Homework should be abolished for kids and there families, friends, and activities.

    Homework should be abolished for primary school children because it is a waste of their time, teachers declared today.
    It damages relations between parents and children and causes tears and upset among young pupils, according to members of the Association of Teachers and Lecturers.
    Teachers go through the motions of setting homework because they believe they should but sometimes do not have time to mark it for weeks, leaving children's mistakes uncorrected.
