Homework Should Be Banned

Homework has little educational worth and adds nothing to the time spent in school. Some schools and some countries don’t bother with homework at all, and their results do not seem to suffer from it. Studies show that homework adds nothing to standardised test scores for primary/ elementary pupils. International comparisons of older students have found no positive relationship between the amount of homework set and average test scores. If anything, countries with more homework got worse results!
Homework is a vital and valuable part of education. There are only a few hours in each school day – not enough time to cover properly all the subjects children need to study. Setting homework extends study beyond school hours, allowing a wider and deeper education. It also makes the best use of teachers, who can spend lesson time teaching rather than just supervising individual work that could be done at home. Tasks such as reading, writing essays, researching, doing maths problems, etc. are best done at home, away from the distractions of other students.
Homework is almost always done when a child is already tired from a long day at school. As a result few students are at their best when they sit down in the evening to yet more work. Homework ends up being done in a hurry, by students fighting fatigue, and poor quality work is produced. Worse still, students who have been up late trying to finish off their homework, then come tired into school the next day, and so are less ready to learn. Really, what is the point?
Having homework also allows students to really fix in their heads work they have done in school. Doing tasks linked to recent lessons helps students strengthen their understanding and become more confident in using new knowledge and skills. For younger children this could be practising reading or multiplication tables. For older ones it might be writing up an experiment, revising for a test, reading in preparation for the next topic, etc.
Setting homework does little to develop good study skills. It is hard to check whether the homework students produce is really their own. Some students have always copied off others or got their parents to help them. But today there is so much material available on the internet that teachers can never be sure. It would be better to have a mixture of activities in the classroom which help students to develop a whole range of skills, including independent learning.
Homework prepares students to work more independently, as they will have to at college and in the workplace. Everyone needs to develop skills in personal organisation, working to deadlines, being able to research, etc. If students are always “spoon-fed” topics at school they will never develop study skills and self-discipline for the future.
Homework produces large amount of pointless work of little educational value, but marking it ties up much of teachers’ time. This leaves teachers tired and with little time to prepare more effective, inspiring lessons. The heavy workload also puts young graduates off becoming teachers, and so reduces the talent pool from which schools can recruit.
Teachers accept that marking student work is an important part of their job. Well planned homework should not take so long to mark that the rest of their job suffers, and it can inform their understanding of their students, helping them design new activities to engage and stretch them. As for recruitment, although teachers do often work in the evenings, they are not alone in this and they get long holidays to compensate.
Homework puts students off learning. Studies have shown that many children find doing homework very stressful, boring and tiring. Often teachers underestimate how long a task will take, or set an unrealistic deadline. Sometimes because a teacher has not explained something new well in class, the homework task is impossible. So children end up paying with their free time for the failings of their teachers. They also suffer punishments if work is done badly or late. After years of bad homework experiences, it is no wonder that many children come to dislike education and switch off, or drop out too early.
If homework puts students off learning, then it has been badly planned by the teacher. The best homework tasks engage and stretch students, encouraging them to think for themselves and follow through ideas which interest them. Over time, well planned homework can help students develop good habits, such as reading for pleasure or creative writing.
Homework takes a lot of time up. Being young is not just about doing school work. It should also about being physically active, exploring the environment through play, doing creative things like music and art, and playing a part in the community. It is also important for young people to build bonds with others, especially family and friends, but homework often squeezes the time available for all these things.
Again, just because some teachers are bad at setting homework that is not a reason to scrap it altogether. Homework needs to be well designed and should not take up all of students’ spare time. Recent American surveys found that most students in the USA spent no more than an hour a night on homework. That suggests there does not seem to be a terrible problem with the amount being set.
Homework is a class issue. In school everyone is equal, but at home some people have advantages because of their family background. Middle-class families with books and computers will be able to help their children much more than poorer ones can. This can mean working class children end up with worse grades and more punishments for undone or badly done homework. On the other hand pushy parents may even end up doing their kids’ homework for them – cheating. And homework is one of the most common causes of family arguments.
Education is a partnership between the child, the school and the home. Homework is one of the main ways in which the student’s family can be involved with their learning. Many parents value the chance to see what their child is studying and to support them in it. And schools need parents’ support in encouraging students to read at home, to help with the practising of tables, and to give them opportunities to research new topics.
Teachers don’t understand the students’ pain and struggle they are going through, they just assign some exercises, look at the solution and present it the next day.
Students spend up to a third of their day working hard at school; they deserve to have a break. Not only do students deserve to have a break, but they also deserve to have time for themselves to indulge in extracurricular activities like, sports, music, and swimming, etc. So homework must be banned
Homework should be giving as much as the student can take but not so much that students will have bad filling about books.
I think that kids like me spend a lot of time playing video games . I also think that some kids get torn by homework especially during quarantine. Kids are forced to do school from home and homework from home as well. This can be hours and hours of work and can be very stressful.
If you keep your mind fully on studies you don’t need o do homework but if you don’t follow the class then you need to do homework as it makes us revise what you have studied in school but obviously the sclools give us a lot homework in our holidays which is not needed.But what if your child has not understood a thing in school? if you do homework the child will ask you the thing that he has not understood.So homework is needed but not always.
at the top it looks like shes crying of homework that is just toter
i dont like it because it is a waste of time plus no one cares about it thats why it is boring
i think homewrok is waste of time because you might get stressed and it just takes away time with your family
Homework should be a choice. School is already stressing enough and students need to be able to have a life outside of school so they can relax and not have to worry about school anymore. If a student needs help then they could ask for some extra work in order to be able to help themselves.
Kids, remember that homework is a waste of time, its just extra work school gives you
you are so right
I don’t think it is right in many situations. You see, homework are meant to make you better, not worse, but too much is just tiring.
who said it was making you worse?
But Homework Does More Bad Than Good. Many Even Try Suicide Because Of Homework.
Then how teachers will understand that which student did understand the lesson and which one not?? . Homework is the way to understand that which student is improving and which one is not. Who lazy and bad student they talk like that.
Well the 7-8 hours that students are already in school apparently doesn’t let them do a ten minute knowledge check on the topic.
homework should be banned from schools because it makes students very tired . It puts more pushers on the child and the child does not wasn’t to do it . The child is already tired from school and they get more work . It is very stressful for a child Excess homework causes children to feel ‘burnt out’ Do you thing my worth opponent is excess of homework good for a child? No it is not good for a child as it leads to coping and negative attitude in them it ruins the child’s life. its also a waste of time. you could be doing something you love like hanging with your friends, or spending quality time with your family homework takes all the time . homework is an unnecessary pain to parents, teachers, and most of all, students. Homework is worthless. It does nothing but creates a monstrous picture of our studies in our minds
uhm what is homework ???
i have homework and find that it has help me a lot with my school work. i believe that some teachers are the cause of not liking homework but you never really know. personally i love homework and think it shouldn’t be banned
I just wanted to say that I had an exam question received late at night which i had forgotten about, about the topic of homework being banned. THIS SAVED MY FRICKING LIFE! THANK YOU WHOEVER MADE THIS!
So you plagiarized?
well, thank you for the comments and opinions it totally helps a lot to make a research about “banning homework”
I am a 5th grade student. Simply put, I absolutely HATE homework! It is stressful and leaves me no time to independently read! (I love to read) I did some research, and found that countries/states with no homework don’t do bad, but actually do good. Finland has banned homework, yet it is deemed the “happiest country” and comes at the top of exams. Ban homework!!!
I’m in 6th grade and I agree with you all except reading I like games
Personally, I don’t quite have the same opinion. It’s different for everyone. I also dislike homework, but I have to do it because I think it’s important
In my opinion, homework should not be banned entirely. The workload should be lessened. Often times, the amount of work children have to do can deprive them of sleep, which can lead to many negative side effects such as depression. Often times, the children at the schools I’ve been to have had to drink coffee or other caffeinated beverages to get through the day, and needed melatonin to sleep, just to wake up 4 hours later. This is mainly due to the homework weighing down on them. Homework should still be assigned in schools, but the amount of homework given to students should be lessened.
here is a summary of whats above about why homework should be banned. I added a few things. Also, its in my own words so if anybody wants it for their school classwork they can copy it and put it in their classwork.
I think homework should be banned. Because first it’s hard to see if a student homework is really done by himself. Second many people copy other friend work and get many helps from their families. It would be much better to have a mixture of work (activities) in the class which will help the student to develop skills which includes learning independently. Also, there is evidence, did you know that an estimated of 17 percent of kids don’t do their homework. And an estimated 20 percent of kids copy their homework from other students. Moreover, did you know that over 70% of kids don’t like to do their homework. Even a famous Author named Justin Coulson does want homework to be banned. He said, “They spend enough time in class.”
the entire internet thanks you
i think either classwork or homework should be banned cause in my country you have to do like atleast 4 homeworks ( do note that i am in 6th) and on average per day you hae to do 6 homeworks plus whatever extra work your teacher gives you ( unless they are nice like my eng teacher ). schoolwork consumes 6 HOURS of my screen time plus 2 or 1 hour of hw screentime. i am a lucky kid cause i can do 11 homeworks in 1 day but that is just not fair. my hobbie is ti play games and stream that but parents say that it takes up 3 hours of my time. one question i ask you, doesnt school take up doeble the fricking time schoo – 6hours + 1 hour of hw + 1 hour of extraa work. games = 3 hours ( at max ) + 1 hour of tv ( i watch like once in a week ) now you only tell me what is affecting my health more, school or games ? i wake up late at 830 thinking that today is a good day but all of a sudden school [email protected]#ks with me and screws me up.
schoo – 6hours + 1 hour of hw + 1 hour of extraa work.this
We are doing a debate for school on whether we should have homework or not so me and my group decided to search it up. 😉
i believe it shouldnt be “banned” as im a kid. i sometimes enjoy homework, sometimes i don’t. but i believe its not all positive. i get done with online school, i do my homework, but man am i exhausted. i think homework should only be done as a punishment.
Yes, I am always against the motion.
Your having fun then ur mom asks “have you done your homework yet!”
It turns out, homework was made as a punishment by an Italian pedagog Roberto Nevilis for his students. So for those who disagree that homework should not be banned, have empathy for students who have to take up their social time only for homework. Like many people commented, it’ll waste their childhood.
STOP THE HOMEWORK STOP THE HOMEWORK STOP THE HOMEWORK STOP THE HOMEWORK
ofc it should be banned. I spend HOURS a day trying to complete a simple math problem because my brain was fried at school. school is the majority of my day. I dont want to spend the little time I have with my busy parents and busier siblings alone doing friggin spanish or something. Optional homework is fine, since that is available for the people who have time for it. But for people like me who have siblings to look after and dinner to cook, adding homework to the mix is too much. And now with covid, the workload DOUBLED. fall of 2020 better be better because this spring just wasnt it. Before you fuck up my brain and drive me crazy, please think about how we are entering high school and thats just a little stressful. Think about how we have responsibilites. smh
Please don’t use insult words.
homework is the worst
I hate homeworks
Homework shouldn’t be ban, but too much homework should. No more then an hour of homework. Kids can’t handle that stress like adults can.
uhm. no HOMEWORK! HOMEWORK IS GONNA MAKE US SUICIDE IF WE CONTINUE THIS. AHHHHHHHHHHH
Don’t you know that homework is a punishment? Look it up. You shouldn’t be doing school at home. You should be doing school at school. Just a little homework is still considered a punishment. I hope homework doesn’t become a regular thing, oh wait it is.
hw’s so bad ,i hate hw✄
Homework should be banned it should be banned you telling me that they don’t have “enough time” to learn what they need to learn. It takes time out of a students life. You people say that childhood is most precious Well how can they have one if they are spending hours upon hours on homework. It waste their free time and their parents time to spend on them. Is homework that important to take away a Childs freedom huh. huh explain it explain it I want to know. homework is a waste of time Childhood is something you can’t get back. 8th grade has already made it to were I might have a mental breakdown. Yes I am a 8th grader so your hearing the opinion of one. Homework should be banned. I spend 8 hours at school and 3 hours on homework even more. Why should school have the authority to stick its fucking fingers in my lives and other students. Its no wonder why students our stressed and mentally unstable. Home should be a time to spend time with family, relaxing, maybe spend a hour or hour and thirty or so to have me time. These are the many reasons why my school system and others are fucked up. so get your fucking head on straight when you think about whether homework is good for kids or not
I also forgot that some parents don’t care I live with my grandparents and my Nana once said to me that this was more important than eating and that point if I run away its she needs to know its her fault
Homework should be limited if not banned. I’m in 6th grade and have a mental breakdown at least once a week. I get about 10 pieces of homework A DAY. I get home from school at 3 and am working on homework till 8. I get to spend about 10 MINUTES with my family before going to bed.
Limited? It should be banned. Pretty stupid for a 6th grader.
I’m in 5th grade. I have to study 7th grade work. :(
It turns out, homework was made as a punishment by an Italian pedagog Roberto Nevilis for his students.

whos the author
What is school for if all the learning is done at home?
Its not school its just work!
i hate homework.
me too teachers suck
Hello have you guys heard about coronavirus? Search an article on this website!
I have my father keeps on searchin’ stuff ’bout it. I am bored coz of it.😒
Yes of course
stop trying to sell your rubbish nobody cares
ofc we heard. were not dumb
I really do think that homework should be banned. First off kids work 8 hours in school and they have to do homework right when they get home. A lot of kids stress doing homework when they get home because they wan’t to spend their free time.
I think that homework should be banned cause as a senior in high school I can honestly say that this has been my best year yet without worrying about the amount of homework and how long it would take me. I have done better this year because the lack of homework has taken a lot of stress off and has given me time to work on assignments that we do in class and get ahead. SO yeah I think homework should be banned.
Thanks for hearing me out yours truly, Cookie monster
Thanks for hearing me out yours truly, alex
Homework Should Be Banned Yes because… Homework is almost always done when a child is already tired from a long day at school.

Homework is practice. But too much is no good. At the same time, it every student of mine has 30 minutes of homework from each lesson he attends in a day, it adds up to 3 thirds of his school day, leaving little room to explore other interests. I also believe that teachers need to add value to the cirriculum by adding things that are left out, like how to learn, using imagination and teaching budgeting, house work and other subjects deemed unsuitable for class environment.
It’s not a practice it’s a punishment.
i think homework should be banned because statistics show that homework can cause disengage students from families and cause anxiety/depression
Finland is known as the happiest country in the world for students and thats because kids arent even given a hint of homework and the graduation rate is 93% while in the US kids are given 50 minutes of homework a day and the graduation rate is 73% what does that tell you about the effect of homework
That tells us nothing about the effect of homework. There may be correlation, but that does not mean causation.
bruh.. its a website on why homework should be BANNED not the effects of homework
homework should be banned because it causes unnecessary stress
In China, every student should do homework for 2 to 3 hours.
Shut up and go to China.
BRO you guy only need 2-3 hours in Vietnam we have to do it more than 3.5 hours :P
Alright, I’m here at finland, and I live here, and I go to school. You see, there’s alot of homework. And extra in quarentine. So, the “kids arent even given a hint of homework” is kinda false. We DO get homework. Alot actually, if I say so myself. But it’s not alot. I can deal with it.
Stop spreading false information.
Finally someone with a brain.
U r angílina harry ?
it more like anywhere from 1- 8 hours of homework jsut depends on the day and the teacher
Reason 1: Studies tell us that homework doesn’t help us at all on standardised test scores for elementary students. International comparisons of students that are older have noticed no good relationship between the amount of homework set and average test scores. Also countries that have more homework have worse results on tests! So if you get worse results on your test, what’s the point?
Reason 2: Homework is mostly done when a child is already tired from School. The result is that few students are are ready for homework when they sit down in the evening to . Homework ends up being done in a hurry, by students fighting fatigue, and poor quality work is produced. Even worse , students who have stayed up late trying to finish their homework, come to school tired, and are less ready for work. So really, what is the point? That’s why homework should be banned.
Homework takes away from family time. If your son/daughter is so tierd after school and they have to do homework and don’t do good u would want too help and that’s cheeting. Then you cant do family stuff like play games together or eat diner together. Homework is like a dementor, sucking tha happiness out of life
homework gives self-confidence and self-motivation to a student to do well.it checks our ability and capacity to do well
In other words, destroys our self confidence
Oh look the most downv- I mean disliked comment on the page.
Homework is almost always done when a child is already tired from a long day at school. As a result few students are at their best when they sit down in the evening to yet more work
all homework does is just help you redo the hard lesson ALL OVER AGAIN and barely even helps you. a school that abolished homework didn’t suffer from it, and a school with more homework got worse grades! it also makes it hard for teachers to prepare for learning just from marking homework. what is the point of doing one hard page of homework when you barely even get celebrated for it? its just pointless work for hours instead of going outside to play, doing creative things like music and art, helping your friends and family or watching TV and playing video games.
Homework Shouldn’t be banned It improves your child’s thinking and memory. It helps your child develop positive study skills and habits that will serve him or her well throughout life.
NO, it doesn’t If there is one person you need to hear from about homework, It’s kids who actually have homework. Homework has done nothing good for me except for putting pressure on me and when I don’t do it, my grades go down even when I do well in class it’s just the homework that hurts kid’s grades for no reason.
That is not true because they need to spend time with family as well as that they also need excersice so you are wrong and I don’t think anyone would disagree with my dession.
How does it improve children’s thinking and memory? How does it help them develop positive study skills if they have to miss out on family time, sport etc. The only thing that would do is make children hate homework for taking them away from other activities.
This is more disliked than the reply I said was the most disliked.
MY friend, you have chosen the wrong place to talk about your opinion :P
I think homework should be banned the students do enough work in class. Another reason is I believe it takes away from time spent with family,friends,sports or even just playing outside.
Statistics show that homework causes: -Stress,headaches,stomach problems -Also arguments between parents and children -Lack of sleep -Can affect “physical health” and “mental health” -Less than 1% of students say homework is not a stressor.
In some countries teachers don’t bother giving homework and their results turn out to be perfectly fine!
I have anxiety cause of overwhelming homework and I sleep at 3:00am finishing it. Sometimes I don’t even do it and that what makes my grades suffer. If it weren’t for homework, I would probably get better grades
Homework should be banned because not all families have good educational facilities and students have also varying family pressure. The often work on errands and not always get adequate time. Also many schools give very hard topics in homework.
Homework should be banned as our children do enough in school… there is too much pressure on children to grow up quick, they do not get the time to rest, have fun and be children… I would also like to add when it comes to after school or weekends I like to spend quality time as a family doing fun things not push them into doing additional school work that is what teachers are paid for and to do in school time!!
Homework shouldn’t take so long as to hardly spend any family quality time together. Each school is different in the amount of homework they give, and if a school is giving a lot of homework, that should be changed, and it should be lessened, but not banned. If it’s banned, then what are they going to do all day? Just play with no intellectual mind whatsoever? How will that prepare them for the real world? Not to mention, summer break, winter break, fall break, and spring break is a time of relaxation. What’s the harm in giving homework on school days. After all, school is a place of education, and if the homework is given correctly and efficiently, it shouldn’t be a problem.
if school is a place of education why should a home be the same? and clearly you forgot about holiday homework, which turns a relaxing break into a time of stress as these assignments often take much longer to complete. and also that, in the UK at least) only 12 weeks of a year are spent in breaks which means 76% percent of a year is spent in school and doing homework. and not to mention the time teachers say homework takes is often underestimated.
The problem is, homework ISN’t given correctly and efficiently… Secondly, whose job is it to help children learn? The government? No, it’s the parents job to look after their children. If the children are ‘playing with no intellectual mind whatsoever’, who’s job is it to fix that? Certainly not the government…
Excuse me? Did you get say
“Not to mention, summer break, winter break, fall break, and spring break is a time of relaxation. What’s the harm in giving homework on school days.”
Well obviously YOU haven’t had the packets and packets of the homework that my teachers have given me on those “ times of relaxation “. So next time, maybe refresh your memory.
homework should be either an option or banned because children are kept up late trying to finish it.Those how do finish are tired and grumpy and will most likely get growled at and those how don’t finish will either get a growling or detention and or is tired. When kids do homework they don’t get time for there self and to top it off they won’t get time to do anything when at college and high school.
School equal? You must be insane.
Homework is not worthless guys.Homework is such a thing that helps us to check our abilities.It also helps us to revise the lectures of school.If anyone says that they do not get time to play or spend time with their family than manage yourself.Make a time table and follow it.Homework also teaches us to tackle with the suitation .If anyone rather says that he/she got glasses because of this homework than just think that getting glasses by using electronic things is more good than getting glasses than studying ?? just think with calm mind!! and write what you feel about……..
how would you manage yourself with such little time i mean if you get about 30 minutes of homework for each class 30 times 7 is 3 1/2 hours and if you get home at 3 then it is 6:30 when you are done ad you also have to eat i go to bed at 7.
Homework is worthless.It does nothing but creates a monstrous picture of our studies in our minds. Albert Einstein once said “Imagination rules the world but our current educational system has changed the word “imagination” with “education”. Moreover, Albert Einstein also said that “Playing is the highest form of research” so we should first focus on laying which leads to creativity. And through creativity, we can automatically have knowledge; the knowledge we get through playing will forever be cherished not the knowledge we get through mountains of memorizing
Homework is turning children into couch potatoes as they spend an increasing amount of their time in their bedrooms instead of playing outside
I am currently a sophomore and I have to deal with homework on a day to day basis, plus the additional packet I must complete every week. It is not hard but it is very time consuming and I barely spend time with anymore. I am to the point of bring too and I’m constanly having suicidal thoughts. I can’t do this anymore.
I know its hard and i know it sucks, but hang in there. You’ve got only got a few more years left but at the same time you don’t have to look at this as a completely terrible time, life is a journey not a destination. What that means is that you should not expect the future to hold bliss. Every single moment is one which you can enjoy. Happiness is a state, be open to it and it will come. So what do you wanna do Now? do you have a hobby? Maybe you wanna read that book. you do that! Hang out with some pals? Go right ahead. Learn something new? what are you waiting for?! Live life in the Now, the best way you know how. That will automatically benefit your future as well. Now, a lot of people say, work hard. I say work efficiently. Try and get your homework done in as little time as possible, with effective output. Using methods of effective work: I highly recommend watching Thomas Frank on you tube for this.
Good luck :)
Homework is an unecesary pain to parents, teachers, and most of all, students. it causes disfunction in mental health, and could even effect families private lives. its also a waste of time. you could be doing something you love like hanging with your friends, or spending quality time with your family, but NO! honestly… i dont think homework should be banned… i think it should be optional. i hope you found this helpful.
Homework is almost always done when a child is already tired from a long day at school. As a result few students are at their best when they sit down in the evening to yet more work. Homework ends up being done in a hurry, by students fighting fatigue, and poor quality work is produced. Worse still, students who have been up late trying to finish off their homework, then come tired into school the next day, and so are less ready to learn. Really, what is the point
I think homework is a bad learning tool for multiple reasons: A)If the student can do the homework than it was a large waste of time. B) if the student cannot do the homework, they would ask thier parents for help, therefore makeing the homework usless for the fact that the parent did the homework. C) if the student cannot do the homework and does not do it, that will lower thier grades without learning what the right the right thing to do, therefore makeing the homework usless.
Homework is a class issue. In school everyone is equal, but at home some people have advantages because of their family background. Middle-class families with books and computers will be able to help their children much more than poorer ones can. This can mean working class children end up with worse grades and more punishments for undone or badly done homework. On the other hand pushy parents may even end up doing their kids’ homework for them – cheating. And homework is one of the most common causes of family arguments
I don’t know if homework should be banned completely, but it most certainly should be lessened. Kids are coming home with hours of homework and no time to have social relationships. Homework should be optional. If a student is struggling they can choose to do homework, but if they aren’t struggling they don’t need to waste their time doing home that doesn’t help them.
i think its a no because its part of the education and its like practicing what you’ve learnt. hope you guys are thinking the same way.
Why would we be thinking the same?
If the kids didn’t get the topic by the end of class then they should have homework, but if they did understand it, then what it the point of having it. That just takes up their time to spend time with friends or family. Why should kids get homework on weekends as well? The weekends are the days when kids actually get to do something besides school, they get to have fun or rest. And they should be aloud to do that. The kids go to school to learn and do good quality work, but when they do work at home they just do sloppy work and don’t get a lot of the questions right. And that is because they have other things to do. Homework should be band.
Homework can cause actual pain. Yes, that´s right. Lugging around that 10-20 pound book bag everyday can cause severe back, shoulder, and neck pains, and could even possibly lead to something worse. Every time I bring home my book bag from school, it weighs around 15 pounds with all of the homework inside of it. Please NO MORE HOMEWORK
Most schools now do homework on computers provided by the school, or they have block schedules, that way the student doesn’t have to carry as much around with them. Homework is normally a few papers, and maybe a book. If you really have that much pain, only take the things for the classes you need that day. Also, be sure to be using a backpack with two straps and not a messenger bag.
Undoubtedly, homework hinders learning. There are only 3 outcomes possible when doing homework: A) You do the homework, proving you were able to do it in the first place and the work was therefore unnecessary B)You do the homework even though you were unable to do so, thus learning to solve the problem the wrong way. C) You do not do the homework because you were unable, and therefore did not learn anything.
I disagree with this point, especially with point b. There is a textbook and the internet for a reason. A student can find out how to do it. Resources exist. Therefore, your point C becomes the student’s problem. Now to attack A. If the person already knows the topic, he or she still needs practice. For example, practice reduces occurrence of mistakes. My test scores have significantly improved once I started doing homework, even though I already and always knew the concept. Also, the voting system is biased, as all pro homework stuff have negative votes.
Now you for your response on point A I disagree because You don’t really need to practice If you’ve already been practicing the whole day in school and you’re not going to forget the whole topic in one day.
sorry but homework is gay
Homework or rather busy work is not as useful of a tool as it may seem. There is no clear evidence supporting the claim that homework improves the grades or the understanding of the students
We would love to hear what you think – please leave a comment!
I think homework should be banned because at first kids think “let’s get this over with.” Then later on they realize all of that was for nothing because sure it prepares you for the test but what about the hours you spent on 1 page of homework!
Homework can affect both students’ physical and mental health. According to a study by Stanford University, 56 percent of students considered homework a primary source of stress. Too much homework can result in lack of sleep, headaches, exhaustion and weight loss.
Homework should be banned.

Homework: a task set by teachers for students to complete outside of the time allotted for a normal school day.
Banned: Disallow homework in K-8 grades in the U.S. public schools
Homework produces large amount of pointless work of little educational value, but marking it ties up much of teachers’ time. Add in correcting it and the time it takes up in class going over it. Altogether, this leaves teachers tired and with little time to prepare more effective, inspiring lessons. Also, reversely, homework can function as a safety net for bad teachers in that they know that even if they do a poor job on their lessons and teaching during class they can always just pile on homework and hope that they can then use this as a sign that they are good teachers. A good teacher shouldn’t need to resort to homework to teach for them, which is why homework is unfair to the teachers who don’t need to assign it while the bad ones who do get credit for that from their employers.
“Teachers in many of the nations that outperform the U.S. on student achievement tests--such as Japan, Denmark and the Czech Republic--tend to assign less homework than American teachers, but instructors in low-scoring countries like Greece, Thailand and Iran tend to pile it on,” Time Magazine, The Myth About Homework
Homework de-motivates kids to learn. Most see it as a consequence of going to school. Studies have shown that many children find doing homework very stressful, boring and tiring. Often teachers underestimate how long a task will take, or set an unrealistic deadline. Sometimes because a teacher has not explained something new well in class, the homework task is impossible. So children end up paying with their free time for the failings of their teachers. They also suffer punishments if work is done badly or late. After years of bad homework experiences, it is no wonder that many children come to dislike education and switch off, or drop out too early.
"It's one thing to say we are wasting kids' time and straining parent-kid relationships, but what's unforgivable is if homework is damaging our kids' interest in learning, undermining their curiosity." The Homework Myth by Alfie Kohn.
The Homework Myth by Alfie Kohn.
Homework is discriminatory in that it gives unfair advantages to certain types of people depending on their home environment. In school everyone is equal, but home is a different story. Middle-class families with books and computers will be able to help their children much more than poorer families can. This can mean working class children end up with worse grades and more punishments for undone or badly done homework. On the other hand pushy parents may even end up doing their kids’ homework for them – cheating. Even worse, kids who live in an abusive or volatile home environment (something completely out of the kids control) end up having their homework counting against them and compared to kids who benefit from doing work at home.
Common sense; there are plenty of homes where education is not the #1 priority and some where it is. This imbalance only comes out with homework and skewers results unfairly.
Homework takes up a lot of time, usually enough to push off many extracurricular a student might want to do. Being young is not just about doing schoolwork. It should also about being physically active, exploring the environment through play, doing creative things like music and art, and playing a part in the community. It is also important for young people to build bonds with others, especially family and friends, but homework often squeezes the time available for all these things.
According to the American Educational Research Association released this statement: “Whenever homework crowds out social experience, outdoor recreation, and creative activities, and whenever it usurps time that should be devoted to sleep, it is not meeting the basic needs of children and adolescents.”
Alos, Curt Dudley-Marlin, a professor at Boston College, interviewed dozens of families and found that, “the demands of homework disrupted…family relationships and led to stress and conflict.”
American Educational Research Association
Homework has little educational worth and adds nothing to the time spent in school. Some schools and some countries don’t bother with homework at all, and their results do not seem to suffer from it. Studies show that homework adds nothing to standardized test scores for primary/ elementary pupils. International comparisons of older students have found no positive relationship between the amount of homework set and average test scores. If anything, countries with more homework got worse results!
Harris Cooper, of Duke University, found that students in middle school who do more than 60-90 min. a night perform worse on standardized tests than those who do 20-30 min. a night.
Homework does little to develop good study skills. First off, many children, after a long and hard school day, end up plagiarizing off of either another student’s work or a professional manuscript. With the Internet, copying has just been made easier. All a student has to do is copy and paste a few paragraphs onto a blank word document and they have their report. This isn’t even considering the massive input parents have on their child’s homework, ranging from checking over answers to even writing a paper for their child. All of this is extremely prevalent in today’s society, and it makes teachers spend ten times as much effort deciding whether a student created a paper or copied off some one else than actually grading the work. Therefore, homework should be banned due to these unavoidable consequences that occur with it.
The pressure to complete homework can also lead to students cheating by copying from other students or obtaining help other than tutoring, such as getting their parents to complete it for them. Students who “perceive that achievement is defined by schools and teachers in terms of grades and performance, worry about school, and believe they can get rewards for doing well in class such as getting out of homework" are more likely to cheat, and to "avoid using deep level cognitive processing strategies such as trying different ways to solve a problem."

20 Reasons Why Homework Should Be Banned
- Post author By gurpreet singh
- September 19, 2022
Colleges and schools give a lot of homework to the student. Students often do it incorrectly because they don’t have enough information and knowledge. Sometimes students get new and unknown tasks to complete. Even at home, students are unable to find anyone to assist. These types of practices make things worse. Facts are overwhelming nowadays, which is one of the reasons why homework should be banned.
Today’s parents are too busy with their responsibilities to run their families effectively. They are frequently unable to teach their students about the subjects. These factors leave a student alone to gather knowledge and do homework. When these students return to school the next day, their teachers may punish or scold them for their poor presentation.

Why Homework Should Be Banned
We can’t say that homework is not important, homework also has its importance , but that does not mean that it is too much necessary. It creates many types of problems for students and their parents, that is why people demands to ban homework. These are some of the reasons why homework should be banned -:
Homework Restricts A Student’s Freedom
- No Time For Exercises
- No Time To Play Outdoor Games
Often Breaks Students’ Confidence
Homework doing not an achievement, most homework creates bad habits, less time to spend with family members, conflict with parents, downtime at home, negative impact on tests, writing has different effects, extra challenges, homework causes depression, homework provides no real benefit, too much homework means not enough time for yourself, school is a full-time job, no real impact on performance, irrelevant content.
In most cases, children do not want to get up early in the morning. When they sleep for long periods and wake up late in the morning, they feel more relaxed and energetic. The best time for students to spend more time in bed is during the holidays. If kids are assigned homework during the holidays, it becomes a painful task. Students must finish assignments on time, regardless of the consequences. In any case, they must study every day. This is the first reason why homework should be banned.
No Time For Exercises
Exercises are suitable for people of all ages. Persons of any age group can do activities. Students go to school, spend hours there, and then return home. They don’t have a lot of time to become fresh and eat. Most students go to their rooms to rest before beginning to work on their homework. They are busy doing school homework at home during the week and on weekends. This is the second reason why homework should be banned.
No Time To Play Outdoor Games
More students take part in home activities these days. Students do not have enough free time to participate in sports. They’re on their way out the door to finish their homework. Parents have been unable to discover a solution to this problem. They have all of these headaches and are exhausted. The clock runs its way, and by the time they’ve finished, it’s bedtime. This is the third reason why homework should be banned.
Homework cannot be achieved without the use of the tool. Nobody can judge a student’s ability just on their homework. Many students are unfamiliar with the topic and how to complete it correctly. If you provide incorrect information, you will be misusing the concepts you are familiar with. Facts are overpowering, which is why homework should be banned.
Suppose many students do it incorrectly and that several teachers make fun of them in class. Because of uncultured experts, it occurs in many schools. Such activities will break students’ confidence. Regardless, teachers should assist students in gaining a thorough comprehension of concepts and showing how to apply them to the subject. This is the fourth reason why homework should be banned.
Students who complete homework according to a teacher’s instructions will not succeed. If you spend all of your time studying and working hard on your lesson, you will not have enough time to do other tasks. It becomes boring for you. It has the potential to impact the causal relationship with others. Doing homework is not a learning process. Students treat homework as though it were competition with their classmates. This is the fifth reason why homework should be banned.
If a student continues to work on homework, additional study time for another topic will be added to the stack. You will be unable to study and read due to a lack of time. Many students treat homework as though it were a daily task. Homework rarely motivates students. They have no idea what the topic is and finish it without any motivation. This is why homework should be banned because it is discouraging. This is the sixth reason why homework should be banned.
A student’s hours are consumed by their homework load. For a child to grasp the relationships between different persons, family time is crucial when they are young. It reduces the amount of time that children must spend with their families. It helps form social bonds and teaches them how to live in society. This is the seventh reason why homework should be banned.
Students frequently refuse to do homework or study. They are exhausted and wish to rest. This might lead to a disagreement between children and their parents. Parents never want to scold their children, but situations force them to do so. This is the eighth reason why homework should be banned.
Homework Can Encourage Cheating
When students have a large amount of work to complete in a short amount of time, they copy from other students. This attempt to duplicate leads to them learning how to cheat effectively such that teachers are unable to differentiate between the two works. If a teacher finds both works similar, they may punish both. This is why homework should be banned. This is the ninth reason why homework should be banned.

After 8 hours in class, 2 hours of homework is a punishment. Professors should provide students with more unscheduled time. Going outside, hanging out with friends, joining hobby organizations, supporting parents, and, yes, watching TV and playing video games all make children feel like kids. This is the tenth reason why homework should be banned.
One of the main reasons homework should be banned is that many teachers cannot provide all the information needed to finish the lesson during class. Parents also can’t help their children with all tasks. The friends of students lack the experience to assist them. Online assignment companies are the options for them. They only can help students with their homework of any level. This is the eleventh reason why homework should be banned.
Even though students understand the subject, the lack of writing or research skills can cause them to fail the entire course, and many teachers do nothing to help them. This is the twelth reason why homework should be banned.
It is challenging for students who juggle their business schedules with activities after classes, internships, and part-time jobs to keep up. They are exhausted at the end of the day. This is the thirteen reason why homework should be banned.
Having too much homework can negatively affect students’ mental and physical health. Five-six per cent of students say their homework is the primary source of stress and exhaustion, according to a Stanford University study. Lack of sleep, headaches, and weight loss can result from too much homework. This is the fourteen reason why homework should be banned.
Many teachers believe that students will become better and remember more if they give them more homework. However, this is not always the case, as more homework results in students not learning. Students are being pushed into a corner of stress by homework instead of using it as a tool to encourage them to learn more.
A lot of homework negatively impacts academic performance. Although homework can contribute to higher grades, it mostly has diminishing returns. This is the fifteen reasons why homework should be banned.
Students who spend too much time on homework fail to develop their life skills and developmental needs. A student who has too much homework is more likely to avoid participating in activities outside of school, such as sports, music, etc.
Additionally, if students spend all their time doing homework, they may not develop essential life skills, such as independence, cooking skills, time management, or social skills.
Most students feel forced to prioritize their homework over discovering and developing other skills and talents. By not having homework, they could spend more time on their interests, such as dancing, video gaming, and painting, thus fitting into society as they grow older. This is the sixteen reason why homework should be banned.
For most kids in Taiwan, school begins at 8 a.m. and ends at 5 p.m. or later. Each day, kids put in about 9 hours of work into their education. Students do extracurricular activities to compete and survive in society, such as attending cram school, learning musical instruments, and participating in sports. They quickly spend more than 10 hours a day engaged in school-related activities. This is the seventeenth reason why homework should be banned.
In 4 hours of weekly home-taken assignments, the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) discovered that spending more time on education has no effect on productivity. This is the eighteen reason why homework should be banned.
If homework has nothing to do with the topic or subject being studied, it should be banned. It’s unethical to assign homework that students haven’t completed in class and expect good grades. This is the nineteen reason why homework should be banned.

List Of The Pros Of Banning Homework
Homework Does Not Improve Student Academic Performance.
The reality of homework for modern students is that we don’t know if assigning an extra task outside of class is helpful. Each study contains several flaws, resulting in unreliable data & Students also search for someone to do their homework online. Some research suggests that students in secondary schools or higher can benefit from little homework; banning it for younger students may make sense for their learning experience.
Banning Homework Can Reduce Burnout Among Students.
Today, teachers are paying more attention to homework stress in the classroom. Over 25% of grade school professors say that they have seen students stressed out by homework. When students are dealing with the impact of homework, it can have a tremendous negative impact.
It Can Help You Spend More Time With Your Family.
Homework creates a noticeable disruption to family connections. It not only cuts down on time spent with family, but it also reduces the opportunities for parents to teach their values and talents to their children. Over half of North American parents say they’ve had a significant disagreement with their children about schoolwork in the last month. Homework is identified as the leading source of trouble in one-third of the families.
It Can Reduce The Negative Impact Of Homework On The Student’s Health.
When students fail to complete a homework assignment on time, they suffer mental distress. When the outcome occurs, assumptions are frequently made about the student’s time management skills, but the reasons are usually more complex. It may be too challenging, tedious, or uninteresting, or there may be an insufficient time in the day to finish the task. When students fail in this area, it can lead to serious mental health problems. It can discourage a desire to learn in students. Some people believe they are intellectual failures who will never live a good life.

List Of The Cons Of Banning Homework
Homework can assist parents and educators in determining a child’s learning skills..
Many children develop a self-defense strategy that helps them fit in with the other students in their class. This procedure allows them to hide learning problems that may be hindering their academic achievement. Because children cannot hide their learning problems while working one-on-one with their parents on specific subjects, homework allows teachers and parents to uncover this problem. By banning homework, you’re removing half of the opportunity to spot possible issues right away.
It Teaches Students How To Manage Their Time Effectively.
As people get older, they recognize that time is a limited resource. To increase productivity, it is critical to managing time wisely. Homework is an excellent technique to encourage the development of abilities in children as early as school. The trick is to keep the time allocated for work to a minimum. Students should spend 10 minutes on schoolwork and plan their schedules accordingly. If a student is having trouble creating a program, the family should provide them with the opportunity to do so.
Homework Allows Parents To Participate In Their Children’s Education.
Parents must be aware of what their children are learning in school. Even when a parent inquires about their children’s learning, the response is more generic than precise. Parents will see and experience their children’s growth in what they are doing while they are at school throughout the day if work is sent home from the classroom. Parents can readily participate in the learning process to reinforce their children’s essential concepts every day.
Is Homework a Headache Or Not?
What are your thoughts? It is essential to consult with students and their parents. Parents work hard to keep track of their children’s progress in every field. When it comes to family tours and celebrations, homework becomes a source of frustration. The majority of homework takes up a child’s spare time. To live, it’s not enough to breathe. More is required for a student to have a happy childhood and grow peacefully. It would help if you understood why homework should be banned.
Another point to consider is that homework is not an after-school activity. Parents provide tutors for their children who are having difficulty with their homework. This keeps a student occupied during their free time. Many parents choose to send their children to boarding schools. You should be aware of your child’s activities and achievements. It is a source of worry about whether homework is harmful or beneficial to students. It is something that parents and teachers should seriously consider.
In this blog, we have discussed who homework should be banned and the pros and cons of banning homework. I hope you have understood why homework should be banned easily.

Why Homework Should Not Be Banned? The never-ending debate
Homework! Many students think of it as a burden!
Do you also think of homework as a burden? If yes, then you are wrong; homework is not a burden if it is assigned in a proper amount. It will really help us learn the things we can’t learn in the classroom with concentration.
Many demand for banning homework because they think it takes a lot of time after school and exhausts students. That’s why they can’t participate in extracurricular activities and pursue their hobbies.
Every coin has two sides; others try to find out why homework should not be banned. There are also some benefits of homework in education that we cannot find in classrooms. For instance, you can’t write a dissertation essay without spending few hours at home in silence.
There are some reasons that explain why homework should not be banned. We explained it below; stay tuned!
Know the reasons why homework should not be banned?
Students have done assignments at all levels of education since the ancient period. The length and complexity of the homework are the key differences. According to most children, parents, and teachers, homework is valuable and should be continued. However, a small number of students still believe that homework is a burden and should be banned.
Whether homework should be allowed or prohibited is a controversial issue. The benefits of homework clearly outweigh the disadvantages. The following are the reasons why homework should not be banned-
Homework improves presentation skills
Homework is designed to help students improve their academic performance. This occurs when they are given the opportunity to prepare and present on various topics. They must gather material, prepare notes, and organise it into predetermined formats.
These presentations can be given in small groups or in front of the entire class. Students are given marks for each of them, which encourages them to work hard and improve their confidence. It is the first reason why homework should not be banned.
Student-Teacher Interaction is Boosted by Homework
The contact between students and teachers is critical to a student’s development. You build self-assurance and regard your teacher as a role model. If you ban homework, you will not be able to establish a connection with your teacher, and you can’t discuss the homework problems with your teachers.
Having homework will help you recall the concepts, and you will be able to chat about something in common with your classmates. It is the second reason why homework should not be banned.
It sows a sense of responsibility in students.
You will become a more responsible student if you have homework since you will be required to do the assigned work at home. If a student does not assign any homework, he will lack a sense of responsibility and will be more inclined to be careless with his other work. In any situation, a responsible student will always shine. Homework can be quite beneficial to a student. It will allow you to plan ahead of time and flourish in your work life. It is one of the main reasons why homework should not be banned in schools and universities.
Parents are updated with the child’s education.
In the early phases of homework completion, most students ask for parental help. Homework should not be banned because it helps parents understand the class’s study curriculum. As a result, parents may always double-check the classroom session and address any issues if they want to concern the teachers.
Grades and scores on tests are improved.
Doing homework provides you with a lot of extra practice, which benefits your learning. If you practice a lot at home, you can enhance your test scores and grades. You know that homework is compulsory, you will have to do that, and as a result, it will improve your grades.
Enhances your writing abilities
One of the many facts about homework is that it requires a lot of writing. It could help you enhance your writing and research skills, which will help you in your career. After a while, you’ll develop the habit of doing the extra labour and evolve into a person who strives to reach their objectives. It is the sixth reason why homework should not be banned.
It is the most useful method for getting students to learn.
When people ask me if homework should be prohibited, I always advise them to assess its benefits and drawbacks. You can only develop an interest in a subject if you devote enough time to it. Because homework requires a great deal of practice and you may be able to choose your professional field early. For a student, this can be really advantageous.
Homework is a way to work on your weakness.
A student who did not understand something during the class session can be analysed again at home. Homework allows students to progress, learn new skills, and differentiate themselves from other students.
Wrapping up! Why Homework Should Not Be Banned
From the above discussion, now you understand why homework should not be banned. It is pointless to dispute that homework is quite beneficial to children. Of course, there may be some limitations in terms of student age and the quantity of homework assigned, but in any event, a modern school without homework is unthinkable.
It’s no surprise that homework is still one of the most effective ways to learn new things and improve on what you already know.
Is homework compulsory for students?
Yes, students must get an appropriate amount of homework so that they can understand the concept effectively that they study in the class.
Who invented homework?
Homework is commonly credited to Roberto Nevelis of Venice, Italy, who invented it in 1095—or 1905.

Why I Think All Schools Should Abolish Homework
H ow long is your child’s workweek? Thirty hours? Forty? Would it surprise you to learn that some elementary school kids have workweeks comparable to adults’ schedules? For most children, mandatory homework assignments push their workweek far beyond the school day and deep into what any other laborers would consider overtime. Even without sports or music or other school-sponsored extracurriculars, the daily homework slog keeps many students on the clock as long as lawyers, teachers, medical residents, truck drivers and other overworked adults. Is it any wonder that,deprived of the labor protections that we provide adults, our kids are suffering an epidemic of disengagement, anxiety and depression ?
With my youngest child just months away from finishing high school, I’m remembering all the needless misery and missed opportunities all three of my kids suffered because of their endless assignments. When my daughters were in middle school, I would urge them into bed before midnight and then find them clandestinely studying under the covers with a flashlight. We cut back on their activities but still found ourselves stuck in a system on overdrive, returning home from hectic days at 6 p.m. only to face hours more of homework. Now, even as a senior with a moderate course load, my son, Zak, has spent many weekends studying, finding little time for the exercise and fresh air essential to his well-being. Week after week, and without any extracurriculars, Zak logs a lot more than the 40 hours adults traditionally work each week — and with no recognition from his “bosses” that it’s too much. I can’t count the number of shared evenings, weekend outings and dinners that our family has missed and will never get back.
How much after-school time should our schools really own?
In the midst of the madness last fall, Zak said to me, “I feel like I’m working towards my death. The constant demands on my time since 5th grade are just going to continue through graduation, into college, and then into my job. It’s like I’m on an endless treadmill with no time for living.”
My spirit crumbled along with his.
Like Zak, many people are now questioning the point of putting so much demand on children and teens that they become thinly stretched and overworked. Studies have long shown that there is no academic benefit to high school homework that consumes more than a modest number of hours each week. In a study of high schoolers conducted by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), researchers concluded that “after around four hours of homework per week, the additional time invested in homework has a negligible impact on performance.”
In elementary school, where we often assign overtime even to the youngest children, studies have shown there’s no academic benefit to any amount of homework at all.
Our unquestioned acceptance of homework also flies in the face of all we know about human health, brain function and learning. Brain scientists know that rest and exercise are essential to good health and real learning . Even top adult professionals in specialized fields take care to limit their work to concentrated periods of focus. A landmark study of how humans develop expertise found that elite musicians, scientists and athletes do their most productive work only about four hours per day .
Yet we continue to overwork our children, depriving them of the chance to cultivate health and learn deeply, burdening them with an imbalance of sedentary, academic tasks. American high school students , in fact, do more homework each week than their peers in the average country in the OECD, a 2014 report found.
It’s time for an uprising.
Already, small rebellions are starting. High schools in Ridgewood, N.J. , and Fairfax County, Va., among others, have banned homework over school breaks. The entire second grade at Taylor Elementary School in Arlington, Va., abolished homework this academic year. Burton Valley Elementary School in Lafayette, Calif., has eliminated homework in grades K through 4. Henry West Laboratory School , a public K-8 school in Coral Gables, Fla., eliminated mandatory, graded homework for optional assignments. One Lexington, Mass., elementary school is piloting a homework-free year, replacing it with reading for pleasure.
More from TIME
Across the Atlantic, students in Spain launched a national strike against excessive assignments in November. And a second-grade teacher in Texas, made headlines this fall when she quit sending home extra work , instead urging families to “spend your evenings doing things that are proven to correlate with student success. Eat dinner as a family, read together, play outside and get your child to bed early.”
It is time that we call loudly for a clear and simple change: a workweek limit for children, counting time on the clock before and after the final bell. Why should schools extend their authority far beyond the boundaries of campus, dictating activities in our homes in the hours that belong to families? An all-out ban on after-school assignments would be optimal. Short of that, we can at least sensibly agree on a cap limiting kids to a 40-hour workweek — and fewer hours for younger children.
Resistance even to this reasonable limit will be rife. Mike Miller, an English teacher at Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology in Alexandria, Va., found this out firsthand when he spearheaded a homework committee to rethink the usual approach. He had read the education research and found a forgotten policy on the county books limiting homework to two hours a night, total, including all classes. “I thought it would be a slam dunk” to put the two-hour cap firmly in place, Miller said.
But immediately, people started balking. “There was a lot of fear in the community,” Miller said. “It’s like jumping off a high dive with your kids’ future. If we reduce homework to two hours or less, is my kid really going to be okay?” In the end, the committee only agreed to a homework ban over school breaks.
Miller’s response is a great model for us all. He decided to limit assignments in his own class to 20 minutes a night (the most allowed for a student with six classes to hit the two-hour max). His students didn’t suddenly fail. Their test scores remained stable. And they started using their more breathable schedule to do more creative, thoughtful work.
That’s the way we will get to a sane work schedule for kids: by simultaneously pursuing changes big and small. Even as we collaboratively press for policy changes at the district or individual school level, all teachers can act now, as individuals, to ease the strain on overworked kids.
As parents and students, we can also organize to make homework the exception rather than the rule. We can insist that every family, teacher and student be allowed to opt out of assignments without penalty to make room for important activities, and we can seek changes that shift practice exercises and assignments into the actual school day.
We’ll know our work is done only when Zak and every other child can clock out, eat dinner, sleep well and stay healthy — the very things needed to engage and learn deeply. That’s the basic standard the law applies to working adults. Let’s do the same for our kids.

Why Homework Should Be Banned?
Table of Contents
Should homework be banned? This is one common debate in the education circle. In schools and colleges, the practice of assigning homework is there for a long time. However, in recent times, students are loaded with multiple assignments. Particularly, they are left with no other option than to spend day and night on assignments like report writing, literature essays, math problems, and scientific posters. As the academic workload is getting heavy, nowadays, a lot of voices are opposing homework.
Basically, for some people homework is a good learning tool. But some students and educators consider homework to be a useless task and are looking for a ban. Even certain surveys state that students who spend too much time on homework experience more stress and health problems. Apart from academic stress, students and educators are also pushing for a complete ban on homework for several other reasons. Here in this blog post, let us have a closer look at the major reasons why homework should be banned.
Why homework should be banned? Know the top reasons behind it
In general, homework has both pros and cons. But in the 21 st century, instructors have been giving a lot of homework to students in all subjects. While assigning homework, many instructors either give new unknown tasks or fail to give proper homework writing instructions to the students. Hence, because of a lack of knowledge and information, plenty of students are ending up with incorrect homework help or solutions. Also, as today’s parents are too busy with their own responsibilities, even at home, students have no one to help with homework writing. These factors make it hard for the students to do their homework correctly and on time and hence they demand to ban homework.
Listed below are some of the primary reasons why homework should be banned.
Too Much Homework
Irregular sleep pattern, no time for exercises, homework increases stress and depression, reduces the self-confidence of students, no enough ‘me’ time, negative impact on academic performance, no time to play games, less time with family members, conflict with parents.
- Homework Affects The Freedom Of Students
Loss of Social Life
Promotes cheating, extra challenges, irrelevant content.
In recent times, schools firmly believe that homework is important for students to improve their overall academic performance. Hence, they are regularly assigning a lot of assignments to students on all the major subjects in their curriculum. If there is a pile of homework, then it becomes too challenging for students to complete it before the deadline. The educational institutes are not even considering the difficulties involved in giving too much homework and are forcing parents to teach their children through multiple assignments. This will not be helpful for students’ progress in academics and is considered the initial reason why homework should be banned.
As the students are continuously loaded with a lot of homework and projects, they spare their sleep to submit their tasks on time. Even some children are losing their sleep because of the anxiety of a heavy workload and not being able to finish the remaining assignments. Generally, for the strong physical and mental health of students, a healthy sleep cycle is necessary. But, students are losing their quality of life because of irregular sleep patterns due to the massive amount of work. Hence, it is treated as the second reason why homework should be banned.
Like sleep, exercise is also important for people of all age groups. In particular, to stay active and energetic, it is necessary for students to do some physical activities or exercises. Mostly, students spend more hours a day in their school. Even after returning home, they don’t have time to relax, eat, and do little stretching exercises due to the huge amount of homework. Some children are busy doing their homework during weekends as well. This is another reason why homework should be banned.
Overloading students with homework has negative effects on their physical and mental health. According to Standford University Research, the majority of the students say that the primary source of their stress and depression is homework. Furthermore, several students exhibit stress-related symptoms such as tiredness, headache, weight loss, sleep deprivation, and stomach problems. As homework paves way for bothersome health issues, it is considered one of the serious reasons for the ban. No homework means No stress, and obviously, the students will live in peace.
It is not correct to judge the abilities of students based on their homework. Some students might not have the basic knowledge of subject concepts and will struggle to write their homework properly. Hence, because of it, they may end up preparing the homework in the incorrect way. Suppose, the teachers punish the students for submitting wrong information or making fun of them in front of the whole class, then high chances are there for students to lose their self-confidence. In order to avoid such activities, homework should be banned.
As students are spending too much time on homework, it becomes tough for them to find time for developing their life skills. Also, they avoid participating in other favorite activities such as music, sports, dance, painting, singing, and so on. Basically, doing favorite things and having some ‘me’ time, will keep the mind happier. Having no time to invest in their interests because of homework is yet another major reason why homework should be banned.
Many teachers believe that homework will improve the academic performance of students. But that is not completely true. If the teachers give more assignments to students, then there will not be any time left for the students to learn their subjects. Because of this, the grades of the students will diminish. Hence, homework should be banned.
Due to a lack of free time, the students are unable to play games or participate in any outdoor activities. Everyone expects students to give high priority to their academics over games. But as they have a lot of assignments to complete, the time flies quickly and by the time they finish their homework, it becomes bedtime. Generally, playing outdoor games will refresh the mind. Because of a heavy workload, the students stay indoors and get exhausted. Therefore, this is considered another reason to ban homework.
This is one of the important reasons why homework should be banned. Basically, students spend more hours on homework. Hence, it becomes difficult for parents to spend time with their children. As soon as the students reach home, they begin working on their projects and assignments. Due to this, they barely have time to interact with their family members and attend weekend activities, family events, and dinners. If homework is banned, then students will get more time to build their bonding with their families.
Every parent wants their children to perform well in academics and score top grades. Hence, they force their kids to concentrate more on their homework and other learning activities. But as students are staying in school for long hours, they might feel tired when they reach home. Some students will start their homework once they reach home but many students will feel lazy and will love to sleep. Since students refuse to complete their homework, an argument raises between children and their parents. This circumstance sometimes leads to a big conflict. Hence, it is good to ban homework.
Homework Affects the Freedom of Students
In general, during holidays or weekends, children will love to sleep for long periods and will not wake up early in the morning. Moreover, the holiday is the best time for children to spend more hours in bed and relax. But, nowadays, because of the latest education culture, students are given homework even on weekends as well. Because of this painful action by the educational institutes, the students are losing their freedom. So, this is treated as another critical reason why homework should be banned.
Students give more importance to homework over social aspects. As they are loaded with assignments, they don’t have time to socialize. In particular, they lose the ability to communicate effectively with others and make friends. Mainly, because of too much homework, many students have stopped functioning as responsible adults. Also, some students face difficulties in surviving in society. Hence, this is the next reason why homework should be banned.
When there is a lot of homework to finish within a shorter duration, some students will copy from their friends or classmates. So due to this habit of copying, the students learn how to cheat the teachers. If a teacher identifies the similarities in the homework, then for sure, they would give punishment to the students. That is why homework should be banned.
Some college students after their classes will go for internship training or part-time jobs. So, for such students, it would more challenging to do their homework after their regular working hours. Therefore, this is considered another reason to ban homework.
Homework should be banned if it has nothing to do with the subject being studied. It is not fair to ask students to complete homework on any topic that is not taught in class. If the students have no knowledge of new concepts, then it would become tougher for them to finish such homework on time.
More reasons why homework should be banned
Here are a few more reasons why homework should be banned.
- Homework affects the physical health of students.
- This forces children to work like machines.
- It’s a waste of students’ time.

- Homework creates a habit of procrastination in children.
- Kids hate studying because of homework.
- Homework is boring.
- Students feel like dolls.
- Homework repeats concepts that have been taught in school.
- Creates memorizing habits in students.
The Benefits of a Homework Ban
As we said before, homework has both advantages and disadvantages. But burdening students with too much homework is detrimental to their health and affects their overall academic performance. Especially when homework is prohibited, students have many extraordinary benefits. Some of the benefits of banning homework are listed below.
- Increase the time to communicate with family.
- Reduce stress.
- Students have more time to study their subjects and prepare well for exams.

17 Reason Why Homework Should Be Banned To Improve Student’s Life
Why homework should be banned? Many students are troubled by this question. Teachers, according to research, assign more homework in a single night than the average student can handle (almost 2 hours of work)! We’ll go over more than seventeen reasons why homework should be banned.
A high level of homework has characterized the twenty-first century. Homework covers a large part of a child’s life. Kids work on book reports, arithmetic puzzles, and scientific posters all day and night. As a result, homework is an inevitable part of the learning process.
People still fight over the necessity of homework after decades of debate. It is viewed as “wrecking kids” or even “killing parents” by some. These people are correct. Students’ and parents’ lives would be so much easier if they didn’t have to do homework
17 Facts Why Homework Should Be Banned
Table of Contents
These seventeen reasons why homework should be banned aren’t enough to convince schools and universities to stop assigning homework after class:
- Students are given way too much homework
- School is a full-time job
- Homework stresses students out
- Homework provides no real benefit
- Too much homework means not quite enough time for yourself
No family time
Normal sleep cycle, downtime at home, negative impact on tests, threat to kid’s nerves, extra challenges, lack of support, the way students perceive things, writing has different effects., no real impact on performance, irrelevant content, more love, more care, students are given way too much homework .
It is an important reason why homework should be banned. Homework is an important topic for being successful both in and out of the classroom. But too much homework can destroy your progress.
Students who invest too much time in homework may find it challenging to meet other demands such as staying physically and socially engaged.
The national parent-teacher association and The national education association have agreed on a “ten-minute rule” for how long students should spend on homework. The guideline specifies that children should work on homework for 10 minutes per grade level per night.
According to research by the University of Phoenix, students in grades 9 to 12 are given 210 minutes every night. These students are dealing with rising schoolwork and are spending nearly twice as much time on it.
Students will be motivated to complete their assigned tasks and feel more accomplished if there is less homework or none.
School is a full-time job.
In Taiwan, most children’s school days begin at 8 a.m. or even earlier and end around 5 p.m. or later. Every day, children spend approximately 9 hours of their time on their schooling. When you add in the extracurricular activities that kids are required to participate in to complete and thrive in society, such as cram school, studying musical instruments, and participating in sports, children might easily spend more than 10 hours per day on school-related activities.
Homework stresses students out.
This is the third fact of why homework should be banned. Homework is a source of stress. According to a stanford university survey, 56 percent of students regard homework as a significant source of stress. In contrast, only 1% of students believe homework is not a substantial source of stress.
Furthermore, more than 80% of students exhibit stress-related symptoms such as headaches, tiredness, sleep deprivation, weight loss, and stomach issues. Homework is to blame for all of these irritating stress and health difficulties.
Without a doubt, no homework means no stress. Students don’t have to waste their time sitting at their desks, burnt out, and wondering about whether or not they turned in all of their assignments if they don’t have homework. As a result, having no homework is a student’s dream come true.
Homework provides no real benefit.
This is the fourth fact of why homework should be banned. Teachers assume that giving students extra homework would help them improve and remember what they have learned faster. That is not the case, however. The more homework students have, the less motivated they are to learn. As a result, homework becomes a devil, driving students into a corner of worry rather than a tool for motivating them to learn more.
A decrease in academic performance has been connected to spending too much time on homework. Even though homework can help you achieve better marks, it usually has decreasing returns.
Too much homework means not quite enough time for yourself.
This is the fifth fact of why homework should be banned. Students who invest too much time in homework do not reach their developmental needs or develop other essential life skills. Students who have too much homework are less likely to participate in extracurricular activities such as athletics, musical instruments, and other activities.
Furthermore, if kids spend all of their time doing homework, they may be unable to gain essential life skills such as independence, learning to cook, time management, or even mingling with others.
Many students feel compelled to prioritize homework over finding and developing other abilities or talents. However, without homework, keds would be able to spend more time on their interests, such as dancing, playing video games, and drawing, while still functioning in society as adults.
This is the sixth fact of why homework should be banned. The most significant difficulty for today’s parents is that they don’t spend nearly enough time with their children. Kids begin working on their homework and projects as soon as they get home, and they barely have time to chat with their families because they’re too tired. Those continuously working on homework miss out on family time, shared evenings, weekend activities, and dinners. However, without homework, there would be more time for family bonding, which would bring families closer together.
This is the seventh of why homework should be banned. When students are overburdened with homework and assignments, their sleep cycles become irregular, disturbing their biological clocks and decreasing the quality of their sleep. For example, they may stay up until two a.m. to finish a single report. Then they pass out when they arrive home the next night, only to wake up late the next night to complete their homework. These cycles frequently repeat in the lives of students.
This is the eighth fact of why homework should be banned. 2 hours of homework after 8 hours in class is a punishment. Going outside, spending time with friends, joining hobby clubs, assisting parents, and yes, watching TV and playing video games all help children feel like children. Their professors should provide kids with more unstructured time.
This is the ninth fact of why homework should be banned. Should schools ban students from doing homework to improve their exam grades? Yes, it is correct. Students risk failing to pass their exams if they focus on homework assignments. Complicated, time-consuming chores, as well as mobile gadgets, video games, television, friends, domestic responsibilities, and so on, appear to be distractions.
This is the tenth of why homework should be banned. Why should homework in schools be prohibited for the sake of mental health ? Teachers are unconcerned about the negative consequences of after-school activities on a child’s brain and mental health.
This is the eleventh fact of why homework should be banned. Students that combine business schedules with extracurricular activities, internships, or part-time work find it difficult to manage their time. They are tired and exhausted by the end of the day.
This is the twelfth fact of why homework should be banned. it is an essential part of why homework should be banned. One of the most compelling reasons for banning homework is that most teachers fail to communicate everything needed to complete the task during class. Parents are unable to assist with all functions. Friends of students do not have the necessary experience to assist, and they also have work to complete. The only companies that can assist students with any level of academic work are professional internet services.
These are the thirteen facts of why homework should be banned. Should schools ban students from doing homework? Another reason to say “yes” is that different students have various perspectives on things. While some students memorise and fully comprehend a topic by repeatedly reading the same material, others memorize and fully comprehend a topic by watching a relevant video.
this is the fourteen fact of why homework should be banned. Some students have a good grasp of the subject. They risk failing the entire course due to a lack of writing or research abilities, and most teachers do nothing to help.
The economic cooperation and development (OECD) found that the extra time spent on education does not affect productivity in 4 hours of weekly home-taken assignments.
Homework should be prohibited if it has nothing to do with the topic or subject being studied. It is unethical to provide homework that students did not cover in class and expect decent reports.
Even the most strict parents agree that they do not visit their children on a regular basis. These generations are divided by work and education. Family members will have more time to spend together and receive more support as the number of after-class tasks is reduced. Learn how to complete your homework in less time. It will save you a lot of time and allow you to spend more time with the people you care about.
Should Homework be Banned Pros and Cons?
We will list why homework should not be banned below to show that this post attempts to assess things objectively. To be clear, we do not insist on homework being avoided at any cost. We try to figure out if youngsters would be better off alone with little responsibilities or hectic routines.
Minimizing screen time
Without homework, a student can spend up to 8 hours every day in front of the computer. The recommended average duration is no more than 3 hours: it makes young people lazy and damages their vision. The benefits of doing homework include improved study and living habits.
Improving time management
Every professional needs to be able to manage their time. It is hard to assign 24 hours per day without it.
Improved critical thinking
Extra assignments after class are the most effective technique to increase critical thinking and memory.
Developed sense of independence
The majority of children aspire to have more independence. The youngster is allowed to work independently while analyzing personal flaws and threats.
What about a little additional motivation? Homework assignments allow parents to encourage their children to communicate more.
Enhanced research skills
To accomplish their tasks, students must conduct in-depth investigations. They will learn how to choose sources and gather proof.
Learning to multitask
A student develops multitasking skills by having several things to do in one right. A single task may necessitate research, writing, and analysis abilities, as well as computer knowledge.
It is not a good idea to assign homework the day before an exam. When assigned individually, after-class activities can help prepare and deepen knowledge; teachers should set aside some time before the tests to focus on them.
Do Students Get More Homework Than They Used For?
Yes. Teenagers today spend twice as much time on homework as they did in the 1990s. According to some research, even kindergarteners spend up to 25 minutes every day on homework.
For over a century, the concept of homework has been a source of heated debate. The anti-homework campaign grew so strong in California in 1901 that it banned homework in all schools below high school. Homework, it was argued, may be harmful to a child’s health by causing too much stress.
The pendulum swung in the 1950s with the launch of Sputnik by the Soviet Union. Teachers in the United States were concerned that a lack of homework had caused their students to fall behind their students in other countries. Since then, educators have argued about the value of homework. There has been a trend toward more homework in the twenty-first century. However, the age-old debate rages on, with some schools or districts experimenting with eliminating homework.
Can Homework Kill You?
The downsides of homework are apparent to everyone: tiredness, frustration, loss of time to pursue other interests, and often a decrease in interest in studying.” he said… “doing homework is similar to taking medicine. It has no effect if you consume too little. It can kill you if you consume too much, “ Cooper explained.
There are numerous articles on the subject because practically everyone despises homework.
Denise Pope, a senior lecturer at the Stanford graduate school of education and a co-author of a study published in the journal of experimental education, commented, “our findings on the impacts of homework challenge the traditional notion that homework is fundamentally positive.” – Stanford university news.
“To put it simply, too much of anything may be harmful,” says Gerald Legendre, chair of Penn state’s department of education policy studies. “What Harris Cooper has advised – and he is one of the leading researchers with some excellent, accessible books on the subject – is that it’s best to have 10 minutes as you go up each grade until you’re up to an hour and a half of homework by middle school.”
Most studies conclude that homework is a waste of time that keeps people from doing things they want or need to do, such as sports or attending important events. Even if students have a legitimate need to participate in such circumstances or do not have enough time to complete their assignments, they are severely penalized.

20+ Reasons Why Homework Should Not Be Banned
Homework has been a source of many heated discussions—and one of the most common questions people ask is whether or not it should be banned.
Many believe homework stifles student creativity, while others see homework as an important tool to help students with their studies.
The following are valuable insights from professionals on why homework should not be banned:
Educational Empowerment Expert | Founder, Think & Evolve
Homework is a pathway to mastery
Like any skill in life, practice is essential for improvement. This is a universal truth.
- Want to get better at basketball? Go dribble and shoot the ball repeatedly.
- Want to get better at math? Do math problems until you dream of numbers.
- Want to get better at Call of Duty? Play round after round of team deathmatch until you finish in first place.
The formula is simple: practice more, get better.
It’s ludicrous to believe that someone, especially a child, could perform at a high level merely after listening to a lecture or watching a video.
Think about it. Would you sit your kid down, having never driven a car in their life, have them watch a 45-minute presentation on parallel parking, and then ask them to go parallel park on a hilly San Francisco street during rush hour traffic? No, that would be preposterous.
You would be putting them in a position where failure is almost a certainty.
Well, when we remove homework from education, then we are doing the exact same thing: setting our kids up to fail.
Homework is the equivalent of practice for school
If students never practice what their teachers are teaching them, then they will never learn the material. Nobody ever became great at writing by simply listening to a teacher talk about great writing. They actually had to write.
The same goes for history, science, math, art, music, and any other subject taught in school.
Without homework to practice the knowledge and skills they are learning:
- students would progress at slower rates,
- have difficulty with retention, understanding, and mastery, and
- perform poorly in high-pressure situations such as taking tests or quizzes
I know because I’ve seen it.
I used to teach high school level math at a progressive 6-12 school in West Hollywood, CA. Unsurprisingly, the students who completed their homework assignments on time performed better on tests and had better grades.
What surprised me more was that this was the case even for the students that were ‘average.’ When I say ‘average,’ I am talking about a student that puts in enough effort to get by but will never go that extra mile.
They don’t particularly love the subject they are learning, but they don’t hate it either. Sometimes they turn in their homework, and other times they don’t. And that is why they make a great case study for homework effectiveness.
I remember one student in particular that whenever he did his homework, his test grades would be A’s and B’s, but if he didn’t do his homework, then he would get C’s and D’s. He didn’t particularly like math.
In fact, he was constantly anxious that he wouldn’t understand the material, and he had chronic test anxiety. Yet, if he did his work, then he performed better.
One student is obviously a small sample size, but I saw this happen with several of my students. Consistent practice always led to better understanding and improved performance.
Those that never did homework or always turned it in late had the worst grades and the least understanding.
Improved knowledge retention and understanding are not the only positive benefits of homework too. Kids can also learn useful and advantageous life skills through consistent homework practice.
Homework teaches kids self-reliance
At home, students must find a way to answer the question presented to them without the immediate presence of their teacher.
They need to either find out the answer themselves or they have to find someone that can help them answer the question. They will either learn to be self-reliant or learn how to ask for help.
Both outcomes are desirable.
Struggling to find an answer to a question is the place where maximum learning occurs.
When kids sit down and stare at their homework, they are forced to recall the things they learned in class. They are forced to play with the ideas in their brain to develop a solution or express their thoughts.
Maybe the answer comes to them after some thought and effort, maybe they have to go find the answer on the internet, or maybe they have to ask the teacher or one of their classmates for help.
Regardless, they are learning to rely on themselves to come up with solutions or to seek out people or places that can help them , which will be useful skills to have later on in life.
Without homework, students would be deprived of valuable opportunities to learn these skills.
One of my biggest fears as a tutor is that my students will become too reliant on me to help them, which is why I never offer solutions without making them work for it first.
When kids tell me, “I don’t know,” I respond with, “Well, if you did know, what would you do?”
My goal is to build them up so that they don’t need me anymore . I want to make them feel like they can handle things on their own. I want to instill that self-reliance down to their core.
For parents looking to hire a tutor potentially, I recommend you find one that will foster self-reliance in your kids rather than just being a means to complete homework for the sake of completing it.
If the tutor does all the work, then homework loses its effectiveness.
Homework teaches kids discipline
Beyond self-reliance, homework also teaches kids discipline. Let’s be honest. Homework is generally… unpleasant.
Related: Why Is Self Discipline Important?
During my time as a teacher, I did not meet many students that relished the idea of going home after school and doing more school work.
That sentiment is perfectly understandable. I would rather binge watch Netflix, skateboard down some sunny streets, or hang out with my friends instead of doing homework too.
However, the unpleasant nature of homework actually teaches a valuable lesson.
For the vast majority of us, there will be tasks in life that are unpleasant yet necessary , especially within a job or occupation. Cleaning a baby’s diaper, having an uncomfortable conversation with a coworker, sweating it out through an hour-long workout are all examples.
The discipline to get those unpleasant tasks completed is a major determiner of success.
Homework is practice for completing those unpleasant yet necessary tasks and will help set up kids to be successful in their future careers. As they become more disciplined at finishing unpleasant tasks, the more successful they become.

The more successful they become, the more they can hire people to take care of those unpleasant tasks for them, whereas someone that procrastinates on completing unpleasant tasks will always have unpleasant tasks to do.
Homework is a first taste of what ‘grown-up’ life is like and is essential for helping kids mature into responsible adults.
Now, that’s not to say that homework should intentionally be fashioned to create a miserable experience for kids. I believe educators should make homework as fun and engaging as possible.
Kids should certainly be able to enjoy themselves and do pleasant activities as well, but a little unpleasantness and discomfort from time to time is healthy.
As my uncle used to say to me when he made me chop firewood for hours while I was ‘vacationing’ at his house in Michigan, “it builds character.”
Arguments against homework
One common argument I hear against homework is that it takes up too much of kids’ free time outside of school and that kids need to be able to “just be kids” instead of constantly attending to their studies. I agree.
Kids should not be tasked with three to four hours of homework per night . They need time to socialize with friends, go to sports practice, or simply unwind and relax.
However, I don’t believe homework needs to be abolished to achieve a healthy school-life balance.
In my class, I gave kids a weekly assignment with 20-30 math problems. That breaks down to about three to four questions per night, which is about 20 minutes of worktops. This is entirely manageable.
Teachers don’t have to assign tons of homework in order to get the majority of the benefits.
As a tutor, I personally despise homework assignments that go on and on ad nauseam even after the student has demonstrated proficiency in the necessary skill.
Homework should be designed to allow kids to reach adequate proficiency and still allow time for other non-school activities.
If students want to reach mastery, they can always do more practice problems at their own discretion.
Some may also argue that homework could simply be transformed into classwork. I found as a teacher that there simply was not enough time to both adequately teach the material and allow enough time for sufficient practice in class.
Students were often left even more confused when we did homework as classwork because they felt like they had no idea what to do since the instruction was cut short.
A final argument against homework is that it increases stress on students while not legitimately demonstrating increased comprehension of the material being studied.
I believe this point speaks more to the quality and type of homework being assigned rather than the homework itself.
The practical truth about teachers, just as in any group, is there are going to be great teachers, OK teachers, and poor teachers. Many of the “OK” and poor teachers often assign mind-numbingly boring homework.
An endless sequence of repetitive math problems, a list of vocabulary words to memorize, a long passage to read out of a dry textbook… it’s no wonder kids check out and resist.
But it doesn’t have to be this way.
As a tutor, I have seen teachers come up with incredibly clever assignments that are both stimulating and interesting. The trouble is that these homework assignments are not always ready-made. It takes effort to create them.
A teacher can’t just pick some numbered problems from a textbook or download a basic worksheet to hand out.
They have to sit down and create something unique and engaging, and that takes time — a commodity that teachers often lack.
Fortunately, sites such as Teachers Pay Teachers are helping connect teachers so that they can share their best work with each other, including outstanding homework assignments.
This type of collaboration among teachers is necessary to keep homework effective and relevant.
Failure to prepare is preparing to fail
The debate about the merits of homework is contentious. Although there are certainly improvements that need to be made regarding the length and quality of homework assignments, homework is still an effective tool for improving kids’ understanding and grades.
Additionally, homework is valuable not only for improvement and success at school but also for success later on in life. It can help instill virtues like self-reliance and discipline into kids, and it is a pathway to excellence.
If homework were to be eliminated completely, then we would be doing a disservice to students and their prospective futures. You wouldn’t put your kid behind the wheel on a busy San Francisco street without being fully prepared.
Don’t send your kids into life unprepared by eliminating homework, either.

When homework serves a clear purpose , is well-aligned to the curriculum , and can be individualized to students , it’s an important component of a well-rounded education.

Students that interact with content more frequently retrain more information and convert more short-term concepts into long-term memory.
Teachers can utilize homework in a variety of ways:
Homework allows students to increase their fluency and proficiency
This allows students to increase their fluency and proficiency with a single skill.
It’s helpful to students that have been recently introduced to new topics that they need to master or as an ongoing practice for skills that are carried through the course lessons— like multiplication facts, for example.
Homework allows students to prepare
This allows teachers to make the most out of instructional time. It requires students to become familiar with background information on their own at home so that class time can focus on a more profound analysis of the content and more engaging discourse.
Homework assists in the practice of study skills
Allows for homework to be assigned that is directly aligned with an upcoming assessment and to assist in the practice of study skills for success on a test.
Studying also allows students to interact with multiple skills and concepts at once, which assists with the practice of long-term memory retrieval as well.
Homework helps build students’ motivation and interest in a topic
Finally, using homework as an extension activity helps to build the students’ motivation and interest in a topic.
These are the kind of homework activities that are typically more open-ended and creative, where individual student learning styles can be acknowledged, and students can demonstrate what they know and have learned.
Each of these ways of assigning homework has a place in the classroom and are all critical to developing well-rounded students that can interact with the lesson content in more meaningful ways.
But, homework is only as effective as the planning that goes into it.
When teachers develop homework thoughtfully and choose a homework activity that serves a clear purpose, it helps students learn content more deeply long-term.
Some valid objections to homework include:
- teachers assigning too much of it,
- homework not reinforcing classroom concepts,
- negatively impacting family time, or
- introducing additional inequitable barriers to students that may not have the necessary tools or support at home to interact well with homework
However, if those objections are addressed in the classroom, and teachers are mindful of using homework purposefully, it can instead enhance learning and be an asset for the classroom.

Homework teaches time management and the importance of deadlines
Although, as a teacher, we want to ensure students are absorbing what they learn in class, homework also teaches them time management skills and the importance of deadlines.
These skills are needed in the workforce later in life, which is why homework is still vital today. It also gives children more responsibility which is why homework increases as they age.
They need to be able to take on these responsibilities and be accountable , as, in the workplace, you often are taking on many projects and tasks that you have to complete on your own.
In many cases, homework also allows parents to monitor their children’s progress in school and to see what they are learning. Although it is the student’s responsibility, parents can offer support and ensure they are staying on top of their studies.
This also helps parents to become informed about what their children are learning and therefore can look into how they might be able to help their children.
Giving students homework is also an excellent way to see the progress of each child and be able to pinpoint where they might need help.
Students might not see this at the time, but teachers want to know where students might be struggling as they can then alter their curriculum to ensure everyone understands what they are learning.
Homework helps with their memory and retention skills
Lastly, homework helps with their memory and retention skills. Although they learn theory in class, there is often not enough time in class to practice it.
Homework allows students to think back to what they learned in class and to use that information to complete the work.
In higher educational settings, taking notes and applying your knowledge is a major factor in succeeding. Homework only scratches the surface of what they are likely to face as they leave elementary, middle school, and high school.
It is a great precursor to larger projects and work tasks they will deal with later in life which is why homework is still needed.
Homework should not be banned for two reasons.
The first reason is because the school system is broken. I know this statement sounds at odds with the article title, given that schools are normally the ones that set homework but let me explain.
Homework helps bridge the gap by giving a topic more attention
The pandemic has already set the current school generation back years, and estimates put the lifetime loss of earnings at $17 Trillion.
The model that schools use is what I call a “Once Through” model — topics are often only taught once in a year because teachers have so many topics they need to get through to meet the requirements of the system.
One of the things I hear the most in conversation with teachers is, “Yes, we’re starting a new topic next week.”
For transparency, my partner is a teacher, and I have lots of friends who are teachers.
This once-through model means that any children who don’t grasp and understand a concept or method when they are taught in the classroom may have to wait a year until that topic is revisited.
Homework helps bridge the gap a little because it provides additional time on a topic.
This can increase the chance of a child becoming comfortable with the concept or method.
Homework is possible to be changed to “work at home”
The second reason homework should not be banned is because it’s possible to change it to be “work at home.”
The material taught in the classroom is often uninteresting or not relevant to children and their view of the world.
This current school generation is used to devices, instant gratification at the touch of a button, and so much variety, whether that’s games, YouTube videos, or other content-on-demand services.
If homework provides the freedom and flexibility for children (and parents) to base it on the interests of the child rather than what the teacher has been told to set as homework, then you increase the engagement with the child and, ultimately, their learning.
I’ve experienced this increase in engagement first-hand. My partner needed a lesson plan for a math lesson the next day, and the topic was perimeter.
In conversation, she’d mentioned that all her students were crazy about the video game Among Us , so I suggested we use that as the focus of the lesson. Among Us has levels, like a spaceship, with rooms of different sizes that players go to in order to complete tasks.
The plan we created asked the students to design new rooms for the spaceship, and they had to calculate the perimeter and also had to work with some constraints (like the total perimeter for all rooms).
The next day my partner sent me a WhatsApp message saying that all her students were hooked because they recognized the game references.
Homework could be set as open-ended, with children able to fill in the blanks based on their interests.
Now you may argue that some topics like math require a strict approach and repetition, and I agree, but you can still base math questions on the interest of the child.
It doesn’t matter if their interest is jewelry, animals, football, or video games. There are ways to create questions and tasks related to the things that interest and are relevant to each child.
This “work at home” approach enables children to learn and make progress, even if the school system uses the “once-through” model.
Tutor, My Tutor Source
I have been tutoring for the past five years, and I have always been a strong advocate of not banning homework. If given in moderate amounts, homework can be quite beneficial for the academic and general lives of students.
There are definitely some good reasons to the point that homework should not be given, but they are outnumbered by the opposing ones.
Here I have talked about some reasons why I think that homework should not be banned.
Completing work at home increases productivity
Usually, students are tired at school. When they are at home, they are in their comfort zone. They can sit quietly and relax to complete their work in a lesser time frame with a fresh mind.
So completing work at home increases productivity to a great extent.
Homework keeps the parents in the loop
They should be updated about what the child is learning in school and what are their academic weak and strong points.
When the students are doing homework with the help of their parents, it also enables the parent-child bond to grow.
Homework gives students a sense of responsibility
It gives them a sense of responsibility because the students know that they have some work to do before they go back to school. They will know that they have to finish off their work first before going out to play or to sit and relax.
This will teach them how to prioritize important work to get all the work done rightly.
Homework teaches students time management
When they have a deadline to complete their homework, they manage their time for homework, playtime, and family time accordingly.
Time management is a very important skill that helps throughout life in different ways.
Every task requires time management, and if students are working on their homework, they will set up a schedule for their daily activities, which will lead to efficient time management.

Homework gives students time to process class concepts
Homework, when assigned thoughtfully and effectively, can help to reinforce in-class concepts and allow students time to process and obtain a broader understanding of classroom information.
Whether practicing mathematics problems, learning and applying foreign language vocabulary, or completing writing prompts, homework, when not overloaded and well-balanced, provides a great way to practice extensions of classroom lessons at home.
Offering reasonable limits on suggested time spent on homework as well as fair deadlines can make homework a useful tool for students and teachers alike.
Former Educator | Founder, STEM Education Guide
If you ask a student why homework is important, they might say, well, it’s not. But as parents and educators, we know homework is important, even if it’s challenging to pinpoint why .
Let’s get into some of the reasons and good discussion points if a student or your child asks why homework is important?
Homework increases exam confidence
When a student does something they haven’t done before, they get in the sense of accomplishment as they persevere to find the correct answer. By finding challenges for students that push their boundaries, they’ll take on these problems and push forward to the correct solutions.
Students that take on new challenges broaden their knowledge and build confidence . A student having confidence is half the battle when it comes to education.
Homework builds this confidence when it comes to taking a test. A student might not realize that the homework is building confidence, but really, the homework challenges them to solve problems in preparation for the test, which translates to real-life solutions.
Homework is a good activity for family time
I’m a mother of three that takes on a lot of responsibilities. Sometimes it can feel as much as a chore to me as it does to my kids when we do homework together.
I have to remember that even though we’re solving problems and doing homework together, this is family time that my kids will remember.
If you look at doing homework with your children this way, it will never feel like a chore, and you’re spending time with your kids, which is always a good thing.

Homework helps combat the tendency to forget things
The modern attention span is getting shorter and shorter-both in children and adults. The human brain is changing , and teachers and students must adapt.
Concepts presented in shorter chunks with more frequency are most effective.
My students would often forget what we discussed in the previous lesson from one day to the next. Homework helps combat this tendency to forget things from one day to the next.
If students review or practice the material at home, it reinforces the concepts presented in the classroom and creates “stickiness” with the lesson.
The United States is lagging far behind other developed countries in education, while US teachers report an unprecedented burnout level.
In order to stay competitive in the global economy, American students must start working harder . This, unfortunately, means homework. The homework must be meaningful, and students must be held accountable for its completion.

Students will learn faster if they apply problem-solving skills consistently
One of the most important things in learning anything, whether it is guitar, math, skating, etc., is consistency.
Part of a student’s plan to improve should include some kind of routine to review or practice the things that were taught during their lessons. This could be seen as necessary for performance-oriented activities, but this is necessary for math and science as well.
Learning to apply problem solving-techniques to different situations and doing this consistently will help students learn faster.
Homework is necessary for improvement
Similarly to consistency, having the discipline to review what your problem areas are and making a plan to improve in those areas are necessary for the path to improvement.
Feelings of motivation will fire students up and only last for a small period of time. Having the discipline and focus to do your homework and finish what needs to be done will be worth more than motivation in the long run.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is homework beneficial to students.
Yes, homework can be beneficial to students in a variety of ways, including:
• Reinforcing learning : Homework assignments allow students to practice and apply the concepts they have learned in class, which can reinforce their understanding of the material.
• Developing good study habits : By completing homework assignments, students learn to manage their time, prioritize tasks, and develop self-discipline, all of which are important skills for success in academic and professional settings.
• Preparing for exams : Homework assignments are often designed to prepare students for upcoming exams, which can help them identify areas where they need additional practice and review.
• Providing feedback : Homework assignments provide an opportunity for students to receive feedback on their understanding of the material, which can help them identify areas where they need to improve.
However, it is important to note that the benefits of homework depend on the quality and quantity of the assignments. Homework that is purposeful, relevant, and appropriate for the students’ level of understanding is more likely to be beneficial than homework that is busywork or too difficult.
Additionally, homework should not be excessive, as this can lead to stress and burnout.
How does homework help students in the future?
Homework helps students develop important skills that are essential for success in their future academic and professional pursuits. By completing homework assignments, students learn to manage their time , develop self-discipline , and prioritize tasks .
These skills are critical for success in college and beyond, where students are expected to take responsibility for their own learning and manage competing demands on their time.
Additionally, homework assignments are often designed to prepare students for upcoming exams or to reinforce concepts that will be important in future coursework. By completing these assignments, students are better equipped to succeed in their future academic pursuits.
Moreover, homework assignments often require students to work independently and to develop problem-solving skills. These skills are essential in today’s rapidly changing world, where individuals must be able to adapt to new challenges and technologies.
How can teachers ensure that homework is beneficial for students?
Teachers can ensure that homework is beneficial for students by:
• Assigning purposeful and relevant homework : Homework assignments should be designed to reinforce concepts learned in class, prepare students for upcoming exams, and provide an opportunity for independent practice.
• Ensuring appropriate level of difficulty : Homework assignments should be challenging but not too difficult for the students’ level of understanding.
• Providing timely feedback : Teachers should provide feedback on homework assignments in a timely manner, so students can use it to improve their understanding of the material.
• Encouraging student engagement : Teachers should provide opportunities for students to ask questions and engage with the material, both in class and through homework assignments.
• Balancing quantity with quality : Homework should not be excessive, as this can lead to stress and burnout. Instead, teachers should focus on quality assignments that are purposeful and relevant.

Homework is a polarising topic. It can cause students to feel stressed or anxious. It adds extra pressure on teachers, who are often already struggling with their workloads. And, some parents resent the way homework can cut into family time at home.
Yet despite this, homework is handed out in the vast majority of schools. And, many educators and parents believe it plays a vital role in reinforcing classroom learning. So what does the research say? Does homework really make a big difference in student learning?
Is homework effective in the first place?
This was the question posed by researchers at Rutgers University in a study published last year . Researchers measured student performance on homework and in exams over the course of eleven years – and the results showed an interesting trend.
The study found that as smartphones became more ubiquitous, homework became less effective.
While some students used smartphones to help them complete homework – and got good grades on their assignments as a result – there was a big dip in performance when it came to exams. On the contrary, students who didn’t use the internet to help them with their homework performed better on exams.
This has to do with the way we learn. When studying, it’s important for the brain to generate an answer – even if that answer is incorrect. The process of being corrected helps us to retain information. It contributes to a deep learning process that helps us store new content in our long term memory.
But if you look up the answer online and then simply write it down, chances are you won’t actually remember the answer – and won’t be able to reproduce it under exam conditions. This is called shallow processing.
So what does this mean for homework? Well, there’s the danger that homework could become useless if students use their smartphones to help them complete it. It’s not just about what students are learning, but rather, how they are learning.
How homework can help with lost learning
However if homework is carefully designed, it can be very effective in supporting what students are learning in class. Now, that’s more important than ever. Since education was heavily impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, teachers have found that there are large gaps in their students’ knowledge , as well as differing levels within classes. There is a lot of pressure for students to catch up. And, assigning additional work to be completed at home could be one way of filling in these gaps.
A meta-analysis of fifteen years of research on homework found that, overall, there was a positive correlation between homework and achievement. This was especially pronounced in secondary-age students. Other studies show that, compared to classes where homework isn’t given out, there’s a typical learning gain of 5-6 months for secondary students.
What’s more, the practice of doing homework helps to build effective study skills. It teaches students about time management, encourages responsibility, and instils the ability to learn independently.
The pushback on homework
Despite the positive effect that homework can have in some students, opponents argue that children and young people need time to relax and decompress after working hard all day at school.
And, there are some studies that show homework doesn’t have much benefit depending on the age and stage of learners. Homework researcher Professor John Hattie found that homework in primary schools makes no difference to learner achievement. Other activities at home can have just as much educational benefit, such as reading, or baking, or simply playing.
What’s more, too much homework can also have a negative effect on students’ mental health. A survey of over 4,000 students from 10 high-performing schools found that large amounts of homework contributed to academic stress, sleep deprivation and a lack of balance with socialising or practising hobbies.
As a result, many families have pushed back. A few years ago a homework strike in Spain made headlines around the world. Parents and children exercised their “constitutional right that families have to make what they consider to be the best decisions for family life.” The organisers of the boycott declared that children’s free time had disappeared. They considered that the pressures of homework were to blame.
Homework: ripe for reform?
Homework reform is certainly overdue. For homework to have real value, it needs to be clearly related to what students are learning in class. Students shouldn’t be able to look up the answers on their smartphones. And it’s important to get the balance right. The US rule of thumb is 10 minutes per grade . And for secondary age students, 90 minutes of homework a day is the ideal amount for improving academic performance.
Schools and parents must ensure that homework doesn’t interfere with a healthy balance of exercise, family time and downtime – especially after a difficult year of online learning and limited social interaction. Stressed out, anxious students just won’t learn as effectively, and overloading them with homework will do more harm than good.
So what is your approach to homework? How do you choose tasks to assign to your students? Is their rate of homework completion high – and do you think it makes a difference to their levels of educational achievement? Let us know what you think on our social channels!
