H.W is a waste of time
Homework is a waste of time and paper. And your using up valuable family time.
Also Kids get home from 6 hours school at 3-4 o clock and they have after school activities and chores and dinner and they need more exercise in there day.
And people wonder why children are obese.
In winter it gets dark at 5pm so basically no room for exercise.!!
Homework should not be banned
I think that homework should not be bannned because if you miss a day of school and your classmates studied somehting new and you dont even know what it is then without homework how are you supposed to practice that lesson that your class learned. If you have no practice then you can get bad grades from that.
Homework Should Be Banned From School
Homework should be banned from school. While some students may have the benefit of available resources and time to effectively complete their homework, this simply isn't the case for all students. This makes it an unfair system to those who may not have the support , resources, or time for homework. If a student does not understand the work they are doing and have no one to help them, this will frustrate them even more than they probably already are. if the assignment needs some information from the internet or requires typing, this discriminates against the poor students who have no computer, printer, or transportation to the local library. Some students need a job to survive, they simply will not get adequate sleep if they have homework added to their already long day. They might just give up on school completely. Though it may be a burden on teachers to teach everything required in a short span of time, the only effective way to reach all the students is to have all work completed in class. They are assured the student is doing their own work, they have the resources they need, and can help those who are struggling.
Homework should be outlawed!
Homework has been given to students because teachers believe it helps them remember what they learn at school, and helps them learn the material better. "Homework is super helpful in learning and processing the material learned in class." Said no kid ever. Too much homework is not helpful, and can be unhealthy. Excessive amounts of time spent on homework can take away from kids social lives, family time, and sports or other activities. Homework should be outlawed.
Critically acclaimed author Tami Ansary says, that since 1981, the amount of homework given to sixth graders has increased by more than fifty percent. In 1957, the Russians launched Sputnik into outer space. The new competition made schools try to increase the difficulty of the curriculum. With harder classes came more homework.
Homework takes away from time that kids could be spending with their families. Rather than spending time bonding and building strong family relationships, parents and children argue over homework. Time is taken away from important elements of daily life. This time is particularly precious in families with two working parents whose time with their children is limited. This time could be better spent going out to dinner, or doing other activities that most families are not able to do because the kids have too much homework.
My opposition might say that lots of homework prepares them for the "real world" and lots of homework helps them learn the material better. When difficult work assignments are given frequently, it causes students to lose interest in the subject. Negative results can also occur when someone is not able to finish his homework. Usually they will resort to copying homework, having others do their assignments, or cheating on tests. Bad habits like these are likely to follow them through their lives. With no consequences to these actions students will almost always take the easy way out when it comes to homework.
The use of homework is effective when used by the rule less is more. Overwhelming kids with loads of homework can cause them stress and possible physical injury from a backpack overflowing with homework. Homework takes away from the small amount of time kids get to spend with their parents and siblings. A limit on their physical and social activities can also take a large toll on their lives, and could hinder their health and future relationships. Homework should not be assigned. In fact, it should be outlawed!
Homework should be banned
Homework makes kids stressed out about school. It can also cause kids to become unfit and less energized and less social. Does a kid really want to live that boring of a life, I mean really? Yes it can be a good thing but it is making our youth weird and wacky, just saying.
Yes, I think homework should be banned in schools.
I think homework should be banned in schools because students can be tasked with various chores when they get home and will get in trouble if they don't get them done. Also the students need time to relax and unwind from the day at school, but if they have homework they have to do school work at home when they should be relaxing. Another reason if the teachers give them a lot of homework they wont get enough sleep for the next day at school and wont want to learn so it makes it harder for the teacher. That's why homework should be banned in schools.
Homework should be banned.
Homework should be banned from school because we want to spend time on friends and family, but we can't because of all the homework. If homework was banned, we would be okay and stay alive. Just doing homework and printing it uses a lot of paper and kills a lot of trees.
Homework is a pain.
I think homework should be banned, because it's just too painful to have school for seven hours plus extra-curricular clubs and then come home to get another two to three hours of homework. It's a waste of paper, light, energy, etc. This might not matter to rich countries like the U.S. but it affects the poorer countries in Africa.
Say no to homework
Because children become easily distracted and become very disruptive and don't want to learn the next day as they feel tired and unhappy. Also it can give them bad headaches and motion sickness. My children are always tired after school and just want to have a good time so I as a parent say no to homework
Way to tiring and stressful.
Homework should definitely be banned from school. Too much homework can cause kids to give up on their education. They think "this is too hard" or "it's too long". They have friends and family that they wish to spend time with. Homework takes away from their social time. Normally homework takes anywhere from 30 minutes to and hour (and that's per subject). Personally I know that homework takes up a lot of social time in my life. I can't ever seem to find the time to hang with my friends at the movies or at the park except for vacation or weekends. Sometimes it pushes you past your bedtime.
After spending all day in a classroom, the last thing kids want to do when they get home from school is more work.
Often resorting to bribery, parents suck the fun out of afternoons by denying simple pleasures to children until after their homework is done.
But it's for their own good - right?
Increasing evidence suggests that homework has no benefits to children during the early school years; especially in primary school.
Associate professor of educational psychology at the University of Sydney and author of Reforming Homework Richard Walker told theDaily Telegraph. "There isn't much academic benefit in homework for primary school children. There are some benefits for junior school students and around 50 per cent of senior high school students show some benefit when it comes to academic achievement. But not for primary school kids."
Agreeing, American educator Alfie Kohn says in his book The Homework Myth, "Homework provides absolutely no academic benefits for younger students."
And, according to psychologist Dr Michael Carr-Gregg, "Homework interrupts a child's sleep, adds to oversized bags young children are forced to carry to and from school and is often completed - or at least corrected by - a parent."
Similarly, a recent Australian Childhood Foundation survey found 71 per cent of Australian parents feel like they don't spend enough quality with their children; blaming housework and helping children with homework as the main causes.
While they don't have a solution for the never-ending amount of housework, experts are advising parents, simply, to stop helping kids with their homework.
They say getting too involved with homework can remove a child's sense of independence and autonomy.
"If parents are over controlling and interfering then that really has a negative effect," Walker said.
"Some involvement is good for self-directed learning, but if they get too involved and the kid loses their autonomy then it becomes a problem. I think parents have to pull back," he said.
So what should schools do instead?
Dr Michael Carr-Gregg said kids should skip traditional homework and be given exercises that teach them important life skills in its place.
In 2013, teachers at St Charles' Primary School at Waverley were applauded by parents after they swapped traditional homework tasks for ones that "emphasis family life and active pursuits."
Acting principal Hilary Cameron told Fairfax Media, "The activities gifted families with family time, which is the way it should be."
Tasks included reading, helping parents with the shopping, housework or teaching their parents something they learned that day.
In an article published on iVillage, writer Helen Vnuk said she has a friend whose daughter attends primary school in Melbourne, and "at the start of each term, the kids get a list of activities, things like taking photos of old buildings near their home or inventing a game.
"Each week, they choose one of these activities to do. And that's their 'homework'," Vnuk wrote.
She added: "I would love this. My daughter would love this.
"It would be great to have activities we could work on together where she's learning something but we're both having a good time."
