    I would rather have longer school days then homework. why assign out of class work if work is better done in class? The exception being things like asking parents questions or stuff like that.

  • I think there should be homework but not 3 hour homework. Homework that takes 20 to 30 minutes that will only reinforce what was learned in class. Now a days teachers ask for too much homework.

  • yes,i think giving homework is good for students or children. Because doing homework spend our time benefitly and we can do ourselves.

  • Keep homework to a minimum. The goal should be for teachers to use classtime as effectively as possible to reduce the need for hours of homework every night.

    I think the whole education system itself is flawed, and homework is one of the things that wastes a student's time. 
  • @Fascism You also think Fascism helps humanity.

    Flipped learning is often superior to the traditional classroom

    @xMathFanx Flipped learning works for me. Some of my teachers do it. It allows me study the things I need to, and skip the things I already know. It also makes class more interactive. 

    This works for me, but I don't know about others.

  • There should be homework, but not the significant amounts that teachers give out. I feel there should be homework, but just smaller portions of homework.
  • Seeing as most homework is just busy work used to reinforce what was taught during a class I would argue that homework is not necessary and should only be given if a student requests it in order to study on their own time.
  • Schools should be giving homework.  Most teachers know how to deal out homework and you can learn from it.  Some teachers though assign busy work and it takes away from the learning and it just turns into busy work meaning having homework every day.  
  • Homework in schools can go both ways. One being helpful for the student to practice a skill on that specific subject. Two, not beneficial and working against the student causing them stress, and being overwhelmed. If there is time in class to work on it great, but if the student understands the concept and could ace the test there is no need.

    You do realize that 20 - 30 minutes per class for seven classes is 2 1/2 hours to 3 1/2 hours of homework per day.

    If you meant total, then that's 3-4 minutes per class which would be worthless.
