homework takes family time and activity time in the afternoons away, so why should we do homework?!?!?!?!

i think that if you get the point across in class, then you dont need homework. giving homework after about 30-45 minutes of work in school just shows that you are a bad teacher sometimes.

Or maybe it shows that the students are just bad, lazy, mischievous students?

We should not have to do homework the whole point of the 8 freaking hours we go to school is to learn there. so when we get done sitting in a classroom for that long we just wanna go home and relax and i personally have a job that i go to as soon as i get out of school i work until 9 or 9 30 and i know i dont want to go home and do homework i want to sleep!!!

If you are a student in high school then you shouldn't have a job anyway. Having a job is kind of like an extracurricular activity; If you can't keep up good grades while working then you shouldn't work.

What is homework? Homework is a task given to students by teachers to be completed outside of class. Everyone in life goes to school to learn. After each class students are given homework on the topic done in school. Homework which is usually done at home has to be handed in to the teacher, this is the due date. School which takes up half of the day and lessons which take up another three hours, give students less time to finish homework. This homework ,might take a long period of time to be completed leads to late night sleep and unfinished homework for due date. This can also lead students to fall asleep in class.

Homework take away most of our leisure time and recreational activities. Students with useful talent can be wasted because of no time to practice and enjoy doing thing that you want to do.There is no achievement with finished homework. Most of the homework given in schools now need the use for the internet some students might not have the resources to go online or an inequitable situation in which they don't have finance to do all of that will be behind in class. The main thing about homework is that is gives students pressure and stress.

It's just meant to show the teacher and the student that the student can do work "outside school", herego homework; this shows willingness and dedication.

Homework prepares you for real life where you sometimes have to bring your work home with you. Which is why I don't work with stupid people ;)

If a student spends all day making mischief he'll never get any school work done. While I think that the amounts given to students are absurd, the fact that most kids don't get it done in the time allotted requires them to take extra effort to succeed, even if that means such vast quantities as they are given.

Although you may understand something in class, homework is used to give students extra practice. Often times the problems in the homework are different types of the same thing you did in class which prepares you for any type that you may see.

If you want to be dumb and ignorant, then yes schoolwork should be done all at school.

No homework keeps students in touch with their studies. due to this students don't forget what has been taught in school. although teachers shouldn't overload students with lots of homework to do in one day. also if school hours are long then students should get moderately less homework.

Doing homework at school would not be homework it would be just more schoolwork. You need homework to prepare you to be more prepared at your work of job to be trusted to remember to do things without your boss hovering over you constantly. Homework is a learning experience

I don't think it should be aboliched because you dont get enough school time to get all the information you need to. Hi MR. Davies

Taking homework for granted would be understandable for most teachers to decide from time to time but thats not what i'm here for.I'm here to talk about the NEGATIVE TEAM that will always win a debate, debate, debate. Where is 'school in homework'

well i'll explain to you what Home work ACTUALLY MEANS.

Homework is extra education that teachers give you nearly every weak.The word home is at home not at school and the word work means work done anywhere in the world practically,NOT SCHOOL

So thats why home work should be done at home. Now that i have explained it to you. You might have a better idea what the word HOMEWORK MEANS

As much as I don't love doing homework, it is still a necessary part of an education. I have found that I don't truly understand the concept of what I am learning until after I have done the homework that goes along with it. Had I not done homework questions and practiced equations or writing essays myself, I am sure I would fail every quiz.

Just because a teacher assigns homework does not mean they are a bad teacher. Everyone has different learning styles and may like solving problems a different way than the teacher explained. A student would never be able to know that without trying it for themselves.

Lastly, I would like to ask the creator of this argument what they expect to happen to them when they get a job some day. When you go to work, you go to WORK. Not sit around and absorb whatever is going on like in a classroom. It's only a preparation for your future career, and for life itself. It's not easy and there's no way of getting out of work.

gosh it shud be abolished coz genrally a child does not find time 2 do with his/her studies resulting in bad marks => scoldings frm parents & teachers(actually cheaters)

but it doesnt mean that no work shud b given as h.w. coz it gives us a practice,a recollection of wat we've studied at school
