I feel that most people think that we should have homework but the fact is that we don't need it in collage because some people have kids and we don't have time to go to work and do homework it is upsetting us it is taring people from loved ones and some people don't get to see their kids

I am a 6th grade student at Jefferson Middle School in Oak Ridge, TN and i think that homework can be helpful for the acidemic education but is also harmful for families and the mental mind stages.

My oldest son who is aged nine got some English home work to do over Christmas he had to write a story about the middle ages.Well i have this Ladybird book on castles which was a Christmas present given to me in 1974.Well my oldest sons eyes lit up he never knew about this book so i should all my children my old books that i had from school age.I have kept all the lot and by accident i also have my old exercise books from the H.S.A.With the help of this book of castles my son wrote a lovely but somewhat gory story about the Middle ages.

you should punish for late homework, or not have homework at all, if you don't punish then they will learn to have things late in life later, and unless you want students to develop bad habits such as that you should not let turning in something late go unpunished (even if it is small disiplinary actions)

Homework is my ultimate grade lowerer(no such word exists, I know.). Test are so easy I never study (specifically for tests) and still get above 95% most of the time. I don't do homework. It doesn't help you learn. It is the perfect catalyst for hating school and nearly every initiative of the NYC DOE(It is legal to do so, as I only oppose ideas, and by no means individuals or any tangible objects). No child left behind is... a spectacular fail on every level. Fireworks, anyone? I detest homework. I deplore it. I abhor it. My primary waste of time is writing comments like this (which, mind you, doesn't take that much time.). I don't have Facebook, nor twitter, nor do I spend excessive time with friends (mostly the 5 or so minutes between lessons, or during frees (Math team takes away my lunches).). My hobbies are reading, writing, developing architectural drawings and learning to read and write code (and several normal languages, like Japanese.) Konichiwa. Watashi no namae wa Oribadesu.(No japanese characters on computer). School french sucks. I get private lessons. No homework from them! Yay! I hope someone understands how bad homework is. No matter what adult say, they haven't experienced the work-all -the-way-to-1-AM, hour-per-subject policy.

Hello dear readers and posters extra cirricular activerties after school are the best form of'homework'you can get.I know that you will think that extra cirricular activerties are not homework but they are a form of homework.Extra cirricular activerties after school fill in a large gap when it comes to education be it one hour after school or a weekend a way with the school.Weekend extra cirricular activerties at my school covered a whole spectrum of subjects from an hours extra of art after school time to an hour of drama or PE activerties like archery or airgun shooting and exercises and basket ball.Weekend activerties were rock climbing and caving,archery and shooting to history weekends away at Chester and York.We even went away one weekend to the Isle of man.My old school the H.S.A would even open up in the summer for extra cirricular study activerties especially around exam time.Now thats what you call homework.Katie Mellish xx.

hello,
According to me home work is good as children can concentrate more on studies but that should not dive any advantage to the teachers where they can be free of their work.

I fully agree. When my son gets home from an outing of nude swimming with his friends at the local college, I insist that he does his homework before bed. If he doesn't, I give him a bare bottom spanking!

I am of the opinion that even the big boys should get the spanking on bare skin. The briefs have to come off before the belt comes down!
