We have asked a few people what they think about homework. Here is what they said:
At my school, it is typical for pupils, especially those taking tests, to stay up until 3 or 4 in the morning studying and doing homework. This leaves them with about two hours of sleep. At that point homework doesn’t make sense and is really harmful. It may lead to headaches or problems with eyesight.
I went through secondary school rarely doing my homework. I preferred to have fun rather than spend my nights doing exercises. Now, I’m a student of medicine and I must say I don’t regret it. Homework is generally a waste of time. If the teachers are motivated and enthusiastic, kids can learn enough while they are in school.
During my school years I didn’t do my homework and I got good results in my exams. So, I thought homework wasn’t important. But then I went to university and that’s when the real trouble started. I found that I couldn’t just listen to the lectures and make notes. To pass college or university exams you need to do some extra work. And doing homework at school makes you ready for that.
I’m sure that the teenagers next door to me don’t get any homework, as they’re listening to their music from the moment they get home from school until they go to bed. No wonder so many young people can’t even read. Teachers should give their pupils more homework, then young people wouldn’t waste their time doing nothing.
It seems to me that rather than reduce homework teachers should really try to show that it is useful. No one likes homework. My children don’t like it but some of the tasks which I do with them are so boring! Why should they like it? Homework may be helpful but children must be interested in doing it.
