  • Teachers Must Assign Homework

    Teachers need to assign homework to their students on a regular basis. Without a doubt, students at all levels need homework to keep materials refreshed in their mind. The fact of the matter is that students forget things without homework. Therefore, regular homework plays a vital role in the educational setting.

  • Yes, homework is an important part of learning.

    Homework is a good way to help reinforce what has been learned while in class. It's usually not possible for a teacher to get in as much teaching as they would like to do during the class hour. Additionally, it can be difficult to concentrate on reading a textbook when in class. Homework helps to extend the learning period, and also to reiterate what was taught in class, so it can be remembered.

  • Teachers should assign homework.

    Homework is an important part of a school's curriculum. If students do not have homework, they would have too much work to cover during school hours. It is a good idea to let students do some of their work independently at home so that they can learn to be autonomous.

  • Homework Part of Life, School

    Having homework is part of being a student. Kids need to have independent thinking outside the classroom and away from teachers to see how they critically think. Homework, even if it gets piled on, is part of the educational experience. The job of school kids is to graduate from high school, and homework is one aspect of a modern education.

  • Yes, it helps students learn.

    Yes, teachers should assign homework, because there is not enough time in all of the school day to get through all of the material. With homework, students can try to learn for themselves. Homework is also fun for students. It lets parents involve themselves in the education process and learn about what their children are doing in school.

  • Yes, teachers should assign homework.

    Teachers should assign homework because it teaches kids responsibility. Many children are not learning responsibility from their parents. A responsible student is much more likely to get a job and maintain a job than one who has not developed this skill. For that reason teachers should feel free to assign homework.

  • Good 2 assign Homework!

    Although it seems unfair to students Not only does it help them when they are old enough it can help them learn new things.What are the pros of homework? Reviewing material covered during the day can help students to better retain new information, and to explore a subject more fully than classroom time permits. Homework also encourages students to study independently, and to learn how to use outside resources such as the library, reference materials and the Internet to do research.

    Self-responsibility and time-management skills are cultivated when students complete and hand in an assignment on time, no matter how small. Monitoring homework also helps families stay informed about what their children are learning at school and about the objectives of the school curriculum.

  • Kids get stressed and have other problems.

    As an teacher I could see my students are having lots of stress with homework. One of my students Alex Birchby stayed up all night trying to finish homework. His parents complained that he did not get enough sleep and was crying the entire night because of stress andhe had really really hrd time.

  • The Kids won't have any life

    Now a days lots of kids are involved in many sports and activities and especially for collage, they look for the kids that are the most involved within the school and in their own community and with all the homework thrown at the kids at once, they miss that critical opportunity to join those sports and activities and the dream collage that they want to go to is gone. Also along with sports, kids won't have time to practice their desired sport intensely so if an opportunity comes for them to play varsity of even higher, they won't be able to because of the homework taking up their time and not allowing them to practice. With more and more homework, kids won't be able to enjoy time with friends and have that fun life that all students should have within their life to help fuel in the long term. Their social skills start to downgrade and when it comes to making friends, having a normal conversation to even a job interview, the kids won't be able to communicate correctly or won't talk which leads to no job, no roof, and no food on the table. In America, it doesn't matter if you have all the knowledge for a job, it matters how well you can talk and present yourself without help and not being anxious and I feel homework takes all these core values away.

  • No Proof of Homework helping Students

    There hasn't been any studies that show more homework in a student's curriculum has helped them in school. In fact, it's quite the opposite. There are studies that have proven less homework helps relieve stress. Homework is small doses is tolerable, but most schools now just throw as much homework out as they can. It becomes redundant to what is taught in class. Students don't focus on studying as often now, but just stare at the clock to wait for class to end. Some universities have performed a study and it shows that an increase of homework has dramatically increased the amount of cheating that is going on. For the people that say yes to this, first try and experience how the education is now. It has gone too far and just stops children from being effective.

  • There is little evidence to support the effectiveness of homework.

    If the student already understands the topic, there is no need for them to practice any further. If they do not understand then homework is redundant because they cannot do it. I am using the New Zealand definition of homework here though which is exercises from a textbook covering what was studied in class- in NZ the final years of secondary school don't normally have homework. We have internals (coursework?) which you get credit for. You can do them at school or work on them at home if you want but if you don't pass you don't get the credits. You have to do work at home some times, but the internals are all about how much work you put in.
