  • Homework should be given on weekends.

    Homework is an important part of the learning process and it should be given on weekends as well as during the week.Students should understand that learning is a full time pursuit and just because it is the weekend is no excuse to slack off and get lazy regarding the school process.

  • Better Than The Weekday

    Having a child in elementary school, my son brings homework home through out the week and not on the weekend. With both parents working, we find it difficult to address his homework through out the week and I feel as though it would be better for the homework to be issued on the weeked.

  • Kids need examples

    People often mistake getting an idea once as having the idea or concept completed mastered, when in fact it requires a large amount of practice and repetition. Schoolwork and homework are important parts of learning, and the biggest mistake a student can make if they're ahead is complacency or laziness.

  • Yes! Yes! Yes!

    Students should be responsible. They should balance doing homeworks and leisure time , bonding with family and relaxing. Also, Homeworks only on weekdays makes students lazy to refresh their mind on what they have learned the past week. Homeworks improve students in learning while at home. It can help students polish their minds in the lessons

  • Absolutely, wkend hw

    Most of American kids are performing below standard compared to other countries. Some countries even have school on Saturday. Kids should be taught to work hard in order to excel in school. Additional practice doesn't hurt. They still have plenty of time to rest and relax when weekend homework is given in moderation, 2 hr daily

  • Kids should have homework on the weekends.

    Kids should have homework on the weekends, but not a lot. Homework improves our education and let's the teachers know how well you understand the topic. Homework on the weekends can help you not forget what you learned in school time. I'm not saying you should do a lot of it, but you should do homework for most subjects so you can remember what you learned and improve your education.

  • No, Never, Ever

    As a student my school life was filled with fun, and homework. Homework was give everyday except for holidays. Kids do not like homework as far as I know kids hate homework. Especially on the weekends. Doing your work is important to keep up with your studies but also having fun, and family time must be spent to. Plus kids already had 5 days after school doing homework. Weekends should be spent on you family, and friends. Homework shouldn't interrupt the fun. Finally at the last day before school begins again. I can imagine students forgetting to out their homework in their backpacks if there were homework on the weekends and the next day be punished for not bringing in their homework.

  • Homework helps kids a lot

    Every parent believes that homework should be on the weekend but I am a 4th grader and I do believe that we should have homework on the weekends so kids don't forget what they did the week before. Many other kids would not say this but I believe HOMEWORK SHOULD BE ON THE WEEKEND.

  • Yes!!! A big yes!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Because students want to get position and grads like A+ and A and this is resposabilty on teachers so lets teachers teaches in there on ways and let them do there work. And it is for our future because teacher will get noting except fee. If you want your better future then you should go in favour of this topic

  • Study children study!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

    I would say that children should study on weekends. I think that children should not get so much home work that they would be studying as long as in school. I would say that they should get homework but some.This is best for them.STUDY CHILDREN STUDY!!!!!
    DON'T THINK THAT THIS IS CHILD LABOUR

  • Students should not be given weekend homework.

    Most students will have homework throughout the week and find Friday as an escape from school and homework. Weekends should be spent having fun with family and friends, because there may not always be opportunities for that. High school students should especially be relieved of homework duties on weekends because when kids do not want to do homework, their scores end up low.

  • No. No. No.

    Like many things in our society, pushing children harder further and faster is having a detrimental effect. Yes, we need to challenge our children, but at the same time they must have a break. By requiring children to complete homework assignments 7 days a week you are pushing the envelope of negative returns.

    I'm not supporting keep weekends free from learning/education but instead for parents to find ways to incorporate some aspect of what your child is learning into daily life. This is a practical solution that will help your child be more successful in recognizing that what they learn has value. Simply adding additional homework or reading assignments is counter productive and jeopardizes the child's desire to learn.

    Think of it this way. When working out in a gym, you focus on working out muscle groups in opposing pairs to strengthen them. Once the workout is complete you need nourishment and rest. If you fail to give your body the appropriate nutrients and rest and continue to exercise these groups repeatedly the gains you initially made will lessen or even worse you could risk serious injury. The same holds true for children. If you consistently require to do school work when they should be resting and assimilating what they have learned into their free time, then it is adversely effects their development. Continue it further and you risk burning the child out altogether. How could the minute gains from additional school work on the weekend justify the risk associated with creating a negative association with learning?

    Children need the time to assimilate what they have learned and organically apply it to their everyday and free-time activities. I cannot emphasize enough how detrimental society's view that everything needs to be better, faster, stronger and more durable is having on our future generations. Yes we need to compete, but by forcing children to spend 8 hours a day at school, followed by 2-3 hours of homework and then adding more work on the weekends on top of that is ridiculous. Where is the quality of life? That is nearly 50% of the whole day spent doing class work and homework. Given that children should have between 8-10 hours of sleep for proper physical and cognitive development that leaves only 4-6 hours of the rest of the day to wake, dress, eat breakfast, commute to and then from school, attend scheduled events (religious, social, athletic, familial, etc), eat dinner, bathe/shower. Even without the scheduled events the amount of time for children to decompress and not feel pressured is minuscule.

    As parents, and as a nation, we need to look at why we are falling behind other nations from an educational standpoint. It is because we treat children like machines. They are little human beings. By their very nature they are inquisitive and WANT to learn. Teach them...But also give them time to assimilate, apply and REST. Endless education will only harm children and kill their interest in learning altogether.

  • Teachers dont correct them anyway

    Just no... Most of the teachers are too busy. They order students to do homework on the weekends, however, they don't even bother to check the homework given to the students. Weekends should be for the family. Teachers get bothered and annoyed to when their work interfere with their day off, same goes for the students. Weekend should be a break for everybody.

  • No, never, non, niet , nine

    Weekends are for relaxation but when we have homework no one can relax your stressed out and dont have time to do the things you love like read or sports or ang with friends instead your couped up in your stuffy room doing homework or stressing about monday's test. Kids have lives outside of school and they need to live them.

  • Waste of time NEED activity!!

    Kids need time to just hang around and be kids not go inside and sit in there rooms doing homework for 12 hours! Kids need physical activity obesity is a major problem in the Untied States, and sitting inside doing homework isn't helping that problem at all it's making it worse!!!

  • Homework on weekends is not right!!!

    With homework on weekends it will cause stress. This will be bad for them. If teachers keep continuing this, thay will probably think there life is boring. Students like me need free time to enjoy there life and be stress free. Also sitting down with their textbook it not right for there phiyscal activity. When you are in a younger age, you whont have homework and you will live a happy life.

  • Nnnnnooooo nnnnnnoooo nnnnoooo

    High school students have busy schedules both during the school week and weekends. Giving homework on weekends takes away students’ free time. For the most part, students’ weekends are already filled with family affairs and other activities, and giving homework on top of a full weekend isn’t necessary. ; )
