Should Kids Have Homework?

Do you ever have to bring your homework home over the weekends? Is your bag always full of sheets you need to work on? You wouldn’t have to worry about that if we did not have any homework. Some people who disagree say, “Kids should be able to review what they learned in school.”

The first reason is because when kids have homework, it takes up a lot of their time. It can interfere with kids’ social life, like spending time with friends or family, or sports practice. It could also get in the way with other things like chores or important events.

The second reason is that it doesn’t make a difference. Studies have shown that test scores have not dropped for students who don’t have homework. Their scores stay the same or sometimes improve. For example, students in other countries have less or no homework but their scores are still better than counties that do give homework.

My last reason is that homework is stressful. Kids might stay up all night wondering if they did good or bad. Sometimes students have to work all through the night because of an overload of homework. This could cause a child to be tired and sleepy a throughout class and miss an important bit of information. They might also mess up on a quiz because of loss of sleep.

In conclusion, we shouldn’t have homework because it takes too much time, it doesn’t make a difference, and it is stressful. What do you think about this topic? Please comment your thoughts!

One thought on “Should Kids Have Homework?

  1. I can see both sides of this argument. I definitely agree homework gives students a lot of stress and can interfere with their social life but I also know that homework can tell the teacher whether they need to review a subject with their students before a test and they can help students understand topics that they have been struggling on and help them get more responsibilities by giving them the trait of punctuality.I feel like this debate is very open to argument and one side has no clear victory over another.
