Homework is important. It practices our skills we learned in school. Now I agree that teachers shouldn't be that hard on homework but homework is very important. Without homework there is no use to go to school. You are not going over the concept you learn. Education is important to the world. Remember practice makes perfect.

Just do you homework... It isn't that hard!
I looked at most of you comments that disagree and I have some of them and I answered, either how to prevent them or a way to fix it. The fist on is someone said you stay up late to finish, well first of all it doesn't take most people THAT long to do their homework, and second of all you can do you homework when school finishes, so if you don't get something you still have another day (because in my school you usually have 2 days to finish you homework) to ask your teacher to help explain the problem your stuck on. A lot of you people said stress is another reason that we shouldn't do homework. Well I disagree, totally. The same thing I said for the first reason is the same reason for this! Just do it in the day your assigned it and if you don't get it, ask a teacher so you guys debating, wont get stressed! Another one of you guys said I have sports so I don't have time to do my homework. Well just do your homework in the morning and when your done... Play sports. Well that about it!
Homework is necessary
Or else kids who hate studies will not touch books .Only because their teachers scold or something the complete their assignments because of these home works they atleast go through the topic... But over home work is not because it creates lot of stress for kids who are sensitive ones
Homework is necessary for good grades.
In middle school I switched over from private to public school. I was used to staying up till 11:00 trying to finish that last problem or paper. The public school that I went to did not believe in homework so I thought it would be a nice break. However, my grades started dipping because of the lack of practicing the concepts that we were learning in class. Because of that I realized that a contained amount oh homework is necessary for you to really understand the concepts that are being taught.

Yes iT IS.
Firstly, Schoolwork is important because it helps students to practice and recap on what have been taught in class. From my experience, during Science classes, the teacher often takes up 80% of the lesson time saying or teaching things that you may understand in class. The problem with this is that this information that you have learnt or understand in class is being lose quickly after a short period of time, this is where homework comes in. Homework helps students to explore and to gain deeper understand in details of the subject where classroom time cannot permit us to do so due to time constraint. Homework helps to recap as well as to practice the points that are taught in class so that the brain can digests. This allows the memory to be retained in brain for a longer period of time. Therefore Schoolwork is important to assist students in their learning.

The homework debate has been raging for many decades, with no end in sight. On one hand there are the proponents of homework who swear by its benefits and efficacy, and on the other hand we have the detractors who would like schools to end the practice of giving homework to students. Among the proponents there is also the burning question of just how much homework should be given to students. Parents, educators, students and indeed the general public have all been deeply divided over the homework issue for a long time. It seems as though the numbers of detractors are slowly growing. Some schools in the United States and elsewhere have a no homework policy. The French president Francois Hollande proposed a no homework policy last year in his plans for educational reform. His rationale being that students do not have a level playing field when it comes to the matter of homework, because some have parents who can help them while others do not.
The experts also disagree over the advantages and disadvantages of homework. Cooper, Robinson, and Patall (2006), for instance, concluded that there is a positive correlation between the amount of homework students do and their achievement levels. Other researchers, such as Alfie Kohn and Timothy Naughton, state that there is little or no benefit to giving homework and that it does not really lead to improved academic performance. Alfie Kohn, (2006), wrote “The Homework Myth: Why Our Kids Get Too Much of a Bad Thing.” Even the title is eloquent.
Let us consider the pros and cons of homework and then make an informed decision and recommendation about its value.
- Homework helps to consolidate and clarify what was learned during the school day.
- It gives practice with content, concepts and skills.
- Homework improves performance in standardized tests.
- It is an extension of classwork that allows students to achieve mastery of the content or skills to be learned.
- Students do not have enough time during the day to fully understand all the information they are given.
- Homework facilitates rote learning.
- It lets parents see what their children are doing at school.
- Homework teaches self-discipline, time management and research skills.
- It reduces time for TV and video games and promotes good study habits.
- It increases interest in schoolwork when it is corrected quickly.
- Homework must be corrected quickly or students get frustrated and lose interest.
- It can be too burdensome and stressful at times.
- Homework disturbs family life and prevents students from doing household chores.
- Parents or relatives may do the homework for the student.
- Students need time to relax, play and pursue sports and hobbies.
- Homework can make students too tired after a long day at school.
- It keeps them up too late at night.
- Homework is often meaningless busywork which does not promote real learning.
- Students from middle- and upper-class homes have better resources to help them with homework.
After examining the pros and cons where do you stand on the homework issue? What would you add to the debate?
On the strength of 39 years of experience as an educator I firmly believe in the efficacy of homework. I know that more homework equates to better academic performance. I have seen it countless times. I wish to sound a note of caution though. Care must be taken to ensure that homework is relevant and linked to vital learning objectives at all times. It must be designed to deepen students’ understanding, and facilitate mastery of the material to be learned.
Finally, teachers should not overburden students with homework. There should always be reasonable homework timetables or schedules and homework should be age appropriate. In elementary schools homework should be light. It can be increased in secondary school on a sliding scale as the student progresses through the school. It can range from one hour or a little less per night in the lower school, to three hours or a little more per night in the upper school.
When no written homework is given, students should be encouraged to review the important elements of the day’s work or do additional reading as self-given homework. They need to understand that they are largely responsible for their own academic progress. When a student is absent from school he should contact a classmate to get the homework and do it .
