we might have time to do better things than turning in papers that might not help us in the future
Homework can cause unnecessary stress, and in many cases is completely pointless. The only class where homework is justified is probably math and in some cases Language Arts, since those are skills that get better with practice and thinking.
An assessment of information? What a deluded joke.
Homework is a bad idea because it cuts time to play, it takes away other important activities, and it doesn't improve test scores.
Homework might not be so horrible if you did it right... start with not giving them an enormous overload. Also some people have different styles of learning... wasting their entire evening on boring repetitive garbage instead of having free time to choose what they want is far worse for independent types. Let them choose how to learn on their own... don't assume everyone needs to be treated the same. Kids did better in my day, where the daily homework was assigned but worth so little of the mark that you could skip it entirely if you knew enough to still perform well on tests. Only larger assignments mattered much, and were infrequent. Or homeschool.
Homework is a evaluation of student's academic. Without homework,teachers wont be able to determine student's level within the student body.
I was brought up with parents who have always told me that the whole point of homework is so that teachers can see how well you understand the particular task set s homework. This makes complete sense to me because in my school too many people were just asking the teacher for help instead of actually paying attention and trying to work it out for themselves... after all, you cant ask a teacher for the answer in exams or in the rea lworld!
if you don have homework how do you expect to learn what they just taught you .
I am not fond of homework but If my teachers did not assign homework everything that I learned in school would go in one ear and out the other without homework.
