i think homework should be banned because it causes stress and takes away valuable time and graph study shows that you learn more at the beggining of the year but near the end you do not learn as much so homework does not really help in school so it should be banned

homework should be banned because it causes stress and puts too much on a student. It also makes them lose family time plus most kids cheat on their homework

It has been proven that with homework, students work at their own pace and not under a rigid structure of classes and deliverables found at many of the after school learning centers. http://www.kidshomework.us/

We need to have outside time because of the nature of the land. I learned how to track and hunt animals. If I get lost in the middle of the woods I will be fine. Also if you are constantly sitting you will get sors on your legs and also might become this a couch potato.

homework should not be banned because it helps the students review what they had learned that day and it gives teachers the oppurtunity to see what needs improvement

it is a pro that it gives Promoting High Achievement. Its well known and provben fact.

Side: Not banned

Research indicates that homework in general is extremely beneficial for students. The supporting research is somewhat dichotomous indicating (1) objective benefits ascertained from standardized test scores, and (2) subjective benefits ascertained from parents, teachers, and the students themselves.

"Homework's effect on achievement can be described most accurately as above average," claims Harris Cooper in "Homework Research and Policy: A Review of Literature." (March 2000) Cooper indicates that, of twenty studies completed since 1962, fourteen are pro-homework. Of fifty studies correlating the time on homework with student achievement, Cooper states that forty-three of the studies showed students who did homework had better achievement. A typical homework-completing high school student, according to Cooper's research, will outperform students who do not do homework by 69% on standardized tests.

http://www.family-homework-answers.com/homework-should-not-be-banned.html this website says from a studen this: I believe that homework is a chance for students to relearn all they missed or what students do not understand in class. It also helps them earn responsibility to finish their homework. Homework is there to help kids and to teach them, not to bore them or to take their fun time away.

It is essential for your life because if you don't get education you can get poor and not live in a home and you don't get a job.

Supporting Evidence: should homework be band (www.forandagainst.com)
Side: Not banned

By simply evaluating the effectiveness of homework using behaviorist evaluation techniques such as standardized testing, one can ascertain that the short-term stimulus of assigning homework reaps the long-term response of improved student achievement.

Side: Not banned

In the article "How Important Is Homework," a summary of the U.S. Department of Education's stance on the issue provided by Kid Source Online nicely summarizes the subjective benefits of homework:

It serves as an intellectual discipline, establishes study habits, eases time constraints on the amount of curricular material that can be covered in class, and supplements and reinforces work done in school. In addition, it fosters student initiative, independence, and responsibility, and brings home and school closer together.
