• Because children need 8 hours of sleep, it just causes stress!

    I never get a lot of homework, but homework adds peer pressure and social problems, kids are not little soldiers doing homework, they should do an after school thing such as watching TV or playing with their iPod. It also makes children hate school even more than now! I think homework should be banned for good!

  • There is NO relaxation for students!

    People who are in school have too little time with their families, not enough time with friends. All this can add up to social problems and a disconnection from friends and family. As a student, I think I can say that having no homework would improve my attitude outside of school, it would improve my social relationships, and I would be less stressed.

  • Yes it Should be Banned.

    Too much homework causes us to over think it, gives us extra stress and add ons to what other stress we have, it also doesn't allow us to do anything we want! These are only a couple of the reasons that I think we should ban homework and as a student I fully support it.

  • Homework should be banned because it causes too much stress.

    We definitely need less stress from homework; it controls our world! We need to have time for family, personal needs, and ultimately have more time for what we want to do. We also need to have enough sleep. We don't want excessive stress than can lead to both anxiety problems and depression. Why keep homework?

  • Homework should be banned as students already do 6 hours a day in school.

    Homework should be banned as students do 6 hours a day in school for 11 years of their life and to make things worse when they finish school all they want to do is go home and relax, but with homework they cannot do that. Say if a family member is ill and the student has homework to do and it has to be in the next day but they want to help their family member instead.

  • Homework should be banned because it is negatively affecting students' health.

    I am a high school student and I think that it should be banned. It is affecting my social, mental and physical health badly. The amount of homework I get makes me not be able to see my friends, not able to go outside and exercise, and mentally, it puts lots of pressure on me. I would rather work harder in school and have time where I can see my friends. Homework is more negative than it is positive. I think it should be banned.

  • More family bonding will be the result.

    More time spent on homework means less time for family bonding. It detaches the student form his or her family and soon enough he or she won't even bother to talk to them. Children get frustrated even if their family members talk to them. They say it 'disrupts' their revision or homework thus being rude. This weakens the bonds they have for each other. I say that homework must be reduced for both student's and family's benefit.

  • Yes - Students Have Lives Too

    Yes, homework should be banned in schools. Part of the reason teenagers have lost interest in school is because of the massive amounts of homework given out every day. Most teens even have large amounts of homework assigned for the weekend. They have so many assignments that they have very little free time for social activities and are getting burnt out on school. We need to rethink the way we educate in this country.

  • No more homework

    Learners with difficult socio-economic backgrounds often have to do more than just be learner. In South Africa we even have child headed families. Others have to work after hours and often find it difficult concentrating in class. The mountain of homework learners need to complete just adds to their frustration. Which in turn can lead to dropouts. More stimulating interactions are needed in classrooms which will in my view motivate learners to attend school on a regular basis.

  • Homework shouldn't be banned

    Homework is great cause it can help you learn stuff.It really helps childrens learning.Therefore homework is great for children.It is just really great and aki tajima agrees with me.He said"I love homework, because of it I cant play games!"Im out of words so yeah im typing random stuff right now.

  • Not at all !

    As a student, I think homework SHOULD NOT be banned, because it helps us study and learn the information for our tests or exams. But not too much because if there is too much, students don't have time for other activities such as music lessons or sports. So I say yes, we need homework, but not too much. (When I say homework, I mean what we didn't have time to finish in class)

  • It will make people cranky

    It will make your child cranky,it provides stress,it will make your child mad and then he will go try to fight people,then he'll get bad grades,then he cant play sports so that makes him even madder so then he wont listen to his parents. Then it makes your child irritated

  • A recipe for lower standards of attainment

    School hours are very short relative to the ground that has to be covered. If tuition covers the expected levels, it is most probably a rushed affair with the pupils unable to assimilate the knowledge and achievement for proper understanding and mastery. Teachers repeat ad nauseam that teaching duties go beyond school hours and they have to spend hours at home in lesson preparation to cope. The same argument applies to learners.

  • Homework shouldn't be compulsory

    I believe students homework shouldn't be compulsory and they shouldn't get detention for not doing it. Homework should only be set for unfinished classwork so the student isn't behind on class work.
    The reason for my opinion because when i was in primary school and i had an important family event i had to go to, or a funeral and couldn't do my h/w, i would copy off a friend so i wouldn't get into trouble. The stress and fear of getting into trouble with my teacher and parents would cause me to cheat and students shouldn't be learning how to cheat when they should be doing their own work.

  • Should homework be ban?

    Homework should not be ban because we need homework to help us learn and also we need it so that we can get better grades and also get better at things like science and math. If we don't have homework we wont accomplish what the teacher wants us to accomplish.

  • Basically it is the part of education

    Homework helped us a lot in recalling all that we have studied all the day so i m in favour of homework and i suggest all of them that are not in favour of home task should get interested in home task because we cant escape through it either we like or dislike.................... Thanks

  • How else do kids get A's

    Kids go to school for an average 6 hours, come back and do what, nothing? How do people achieved their dreams in this world? Hours of practice and practice, and no practice does not make perfect, perfect practice makes perfect. Most kids forget what they learned at school that day. Homework is a way to reactivate that information. Without homework, what would they learn, how would they advance, what would the results on the tests and quizzes look like? Not very good for sure.
