Reasons Why Homework Should Be Banned


The Top Ten

1 It eats up all our free time

I don't agree because it helps us learn more and makes us more sturdy in a subject. It usually only takes 10 to 20 minutes for most worksheets.

It takes hour

Yes yes it does

I totally agree we need homework to be band

Its makes me mad!

Homework should be banned because we need more time to relax

8 It brings the hell of school to your house

Happy to not do it

MORE hell is brought to my house (my house is already hell :P)

That's right

I have homework and I do so of my homework on this ridiculous website named Dreambox, and I am in 3rd grade and I'm litterally learning stuff that are from 4TH GRADE, 5TH GRADE, 6TH GRADE, and even one of 7TH. I think I'm a little too smart. Also there is this lesson on it that makes m eclassify shapes and it says I got it wrong for attribute relationships. I always got that every time. Ad I searched it up on the internet so I can firgure out what it is, but it wasnt there. So dreambox gets you wrong on this lesson for failing some stuid math thing that doesent even EXIST

9 School doesn't understand we have lives outside of school, too

My teacher doesn't understand that at all

10 The stuff in homework is the stuff you learn at school

The Newcomers

? People actually have the right to have some free time to relax


? You could overwork yourself

The Contenders

11 Adults don't understand the stress

My mom doesn’t understand how hard my homework is

12 We don't have enough time to sleep, which probably makes our grade lower in the long run.


13 It has caused suicides

Suicide is bad for you

14 We spend enough time in school doing work we shouldn't have to take it home with us


15 It isn't fun

Not everything in life is fun.

16 It wastes a teacher's time

It wastes the student's time more

17 It's pointless

Userguy44 sorry, but I disagree!

No it isn't. - Userguy44

18 The teachers become bossy
19 It can drive you to madness

Mom: Why are you out?
Me: I have too much homework and it's so hard and it takes me forever to do it all!

All I hear is REE

20 Tests have shown it affects your health in a negative way
21 We cant spend time with our family because we have either homework or projects

And tests, too

22 Some people feel too stressed to do homework

This always happens to me. - lunalovegood677

I’m always stressed

23 Life should be enjoyed


24 It's a home wrecking thing
25 People have lives

Ye woo

26 It makes you less productive

I feel like this is very true because we are being forced to learn something we don't want to

27 3-6 hours of homework a night doesn't help me sleep more.

It takes me over 7 hrs to do mine

28 It is stupid

No, its not. But it is boring. I mean, you must learn something from it, or become better at something by doing it. And, I'm trying to wright an opinion essay and I can't just tell my teacher I think homework should be band because its stupid! Some of the other reasons are good but NOT this one

29 It makes you tired.
30 It wastes time and energy

This is a true statement, I truly agree.

31 Homework distracts from studying for tests and exams
32 We came home from school
33 It's boring and we have better things to do

We have lives to live

34 Family vacation and leisure are not observed
35 You don't really learn anything

Homework is more about memorization than actual learning. you do that in class

36 We have to learn at school not at home

"we have to play

37 It causes us to have less time to do something
