  • Homework primes you for responsibility

    Homework is assigned and due at a given date much like work or bills or any other sort of responsibility. Jobs require you to be productive and if a child does not learn how to be efficient at managing their time and work, then life will become difficult later on. Homework also gives you practice at a subject at hand. Giving just three problems for math, for an example, may teach you a concept, but you will not be proficient at applying it. This is important because it stimulates and allows your brain to grow and since you are proficient at these concept, you have more options when you start choosing a career.

  • Homework reinforces the concepts learnt at school

    Having homework also allows students to really fix in their heads work they have done in school. Doing tasks linked to recent lessons helps students strengthen their understanding and become more confident in using new knowledge and skills. For younger children this could be practicing reading or multiplication tables. For older ones it might be writing up an experiment, revising for a test and reading in preparation for the next topic. Professor Cooper of Duke University, has found that there is evidence that in elementary school students do better on tests when they do short homework assignments related to the test. Students gain confidence from such practices, and that shows when they sit the tests. When we enable students to prepare for test with homework, why should we take it away?

  • Yes because it helps you learn stuff that you don't know or that you don't understand what they don't know

    I think that we should have homework.Because it helps you learn more things and helps you understand what you don't understand.And it helps people that don't know math or what you the teacher gives you.Or if you ask the teacher if you can have stuff that you don't understand and maybe she might say yes she might say no.

  • Homework is more important than school.

    Although homework does interfere with the child's life outside of school it also stimulates positive interaction between a child and parent. The home environment is where most education actually takes place. Schools are more of a guide giving educational direction and purpose. It's the interaction between parent and child that stimulates the most valuable learning experience and it's why poor grades are a great indicator of a poorly educated or neglectful/abusive parent. Teachers are responsible for classes of around 20 students on average with very little time for each subjects each day. Education at home has far more value than in school.

  • Yes... To an extent.

    I think that homework is absolutely beneficial when given in small doses. It teaches kids things that maybe couldn't be taught in one class period. However, mountains of homework are simply unnecessary. To answer the base question however, yes. I think homework can be very helpful to a struggling child.

  • Kids get punished for not doing it!!!!!!!!!!

    Homework is a waste if time. You just forget it by the next day and u get punished for forgetting well sorry my brain FORGETS USELESS homework assignments. So no i think homework should be banned from school it puts wayyyyyy to much stress on kid and there parents ..

  • Because It can tell what the teacher you know and don't know or you are struggling with.

    I think so because it allowed the teacher to know what understand so if you get problems wrong soo what that just means you don't understand it yet or you made a simple and common mistake that is what I think of homework. Yes you might hate it but just give it a try and don't mess around on phones all day or going to a party or simply a friends house and you only did part of it. All of what homework is that it just let the teacher know what you know and so she/he can correct you and let you understand a problem you are having.

  • As long as it's not putting too much stress on students.

    I do think homework is necessary, small amounts of homework really helps school performance, it makes it easier to remember the things being taught at school and teaches kids about responsibility.

    But giving tons of homework won't do any good, kids will only care about getting it finished, without actually learning anything. It will also interfere with kids' personal lives, taking hours, days, or even weeks of time that could've been used to do what the kids actually want.

    All claims are based on personal experiences.

  • I, as a hater of homework, know that we need it

    I really don't enjoy doing homework. Most of the time I just avoid it whenever I can, but I understand that it's a mandatory and important part of education. Without homework, that extra practice and understanding would be lost. Sometimes, it can be given in a very large amount, but only a small thing to continue with the lesson being learned is necessary, in my opinion. Also, kids would grow up not used to responsibilities of their own.

  • Homework should be given but to a limit.

    Homework should be given. Homework is very important as it revises the concepts learnt at school, thus keeping their mind fresh. Research proves that studying makes the mind sharp and able to respond to new concepts. Homework also makes you responsible. BUT homework should be given to a limit. A lot of homework puts students under pressure

  • I think kids should not get any homework!

    It doesn't count against their grade., it wastes time, and it blocks important plans, and its just plain stressful!! Kids shouldn't get home work. Please vote NO and give good reasons and Iĺl congratulate you and reward you. Thank you and good luck. Posted By: JESDebater at 10:21 a.M. On May 16th 2014.

  • Obviously they shouldn't.

    They shouldn't get any homework at all, simply because it's to stressful, and it causes much interference with things outside of school. It's really just a waste of time. Most of the work should be finished inside of class anyhow. It's also most of what they do in class so it's pointless.

  • Kids shoudn't have homwork.

    Before giving arguments for my asserttion, i will ask a question. What the role of a school ? Besides the traditionnal reasons, a school is, simply a place where kids study stuff, and what is a home ? It's a place where kids shoud have rest and fun. There'is no need to overcharge those kids with homework ..
