I think we shouldn’t have homework because it can cause guilt to the students that don’t do it. For example, if a child has baseball, or gymnastics, or soccer, or any of that kind a stuff they will probably end up NOT doing their homework, and when he or she comes into school the next day their homework will not be completed. In addition it will make the teacher and the students feel bad.
Reason#2 why we shouldn’t have homework.
Like I said in reason#1, a child might have a sport or activity once or twice a week, and they probably won’t get home till 7:00pm or 8:00pm, or somewhere around there. Then, he or she has to eat dinner. After that they have to do their homework, and that will prevent them from going to bed at their (regular) bed time. Also it will make them stay up late, and they will be very cranky tired grumpy etc., and I’m sure his or her teacher (or teachers) wouldn’t want to deal with A. they didn’t do their homework. B. their tired grumpy cranky etc. and c the teacher (or teachers) wouldn’t his or her “excuses.” Plus if that kid is a good kid, then he or she SHOULD NOT be punished.
Another reason why we shouldn’t have homework is, as children get older they are assigned more homework. A lot of it requires the assistance of computers, which not everyone can afford, and I’m sure that kid wants to do their homework. But, they can’t if they don’t have a COMPUTER! Also if they don’t do their homework (on the computer) it might reflect on his or her grade and it might cause them to have a bad grade.
Reason #4 why we shouldn’t have homework.
I’m sure many kids and teens have older or younger brothers or sister at his or her house. Many of them are A. distracting B. annoying C. complaining and D. trying to torture them. A couple years back my older brother kept mimicking me, and that made my homework hard to do. I asked him to stop but he kept doing it, and that really got annoying. On the other hand if he or she has a younger brother or sister they will get VERY ANNOYING. For example: if your younger sibling is screaming, crying, running around the house, or saying your name over and over, it will be very, very, very distracting and annoying. There for making it difficult to complete his or her homework.
Reason #5 why we shouldn’t have homework.
The work that students do these days are ALOTE different then what parents use to do, and if a child needs help with the “new” way of homework their parents probably won’t understand it. So they probably can’t help his or her child with the “new” way of homework. And I’m pretty sure that his or her parents aren’t hovering over their shoulder all day. In addition there are no teachers at home to help.
My last reason why we shouldn’t have homework is, teachers have to sit in their classroom for hours and hours grading homework, and I’m pretty sure that they don’t want to do that. Plus we need to give them a break. They work they’re butts off to teach us. And when we are at home they have to stay and grade homework, and that’s not fair. While their grading homework they could be having fun not just sitting there grading homework after homework. A couple of my teachers said “it’s a pain in the butt grading 22 papers year after year.” Even though I’m not a teacher, I totally agree with them.
In conclusion it’s a pain in the butt to grade, it can cause guilt, there are no teachers at home to help, there are house distractions, it will make them stay up late, not everyone has computers, and they might have a sport or activity.
