Most students hate homework with a passion and agree it should be banned. Here are some good resons to consider why:

1. Students spend up to 6 hours or more working at school. When they come home, they have to homework so in reality they dont really leave school. It is important that children should have a social life and not just stress. If its a matter of catching up on work because you dont get it, then its ok, but teachers give homework every day.

2. In Finland they dont have homework and their percentage rates are far higher than that in the U.S or Cananda.

In Canada, the high school graduation rate is around 78 per cent and in America it comes in at around 75 per cent. Now, consider the fact that the graduation rate for students in Finland comes in at 93 per cent " showing a massive comparison between the countries. Finland also happens to have the highest rate in Europe for students going to college (two out of three). So, how does it so happen that Finland can claim such a high percentage of graduating students " it is all purely down to the fact that they don"t have homework and dont have as many standarized tests.

Students sit in school all day and barely get any exercise. When they get home, they have to sit some more and do their homework. By the time they are done, it is time to get ready for bed. Where is the time for activity? Where is the time for exercise? The fact is that there is no time. During the school week and sometimes on the weekends, the student is busy doing work and school and homework at home. They don"t have time to play sports and if they do then they are rushing through their homework anyways.


Home work is great help to students especially like me. it helps to cover all your failing grades. It helps in many ways like; It improves child's thinking and memory. Home work encourage children to use time wisely. It teaches a child to work independently.It allow parents to communicate about what he/she learning in school and lots other reason.
Your comparing other country to ours, this kids in United States don't go out usually, We have different cultures and here, many children wants to stay home to play with technologies instead of going out. Countries has difference you should not compare their way of living and ours.
