Now, let's move on the next topic!

How does it work? Write a quality opinion/comment on this topic and we will choose 3 random winners to win 3,000 points each! (No need to post your own Topic)

Our question this week is: Should homework in primary schools be banned?

Elementary (primary) schools across Florida in the United States have been issued with a "no homework" mandate, after research showed that homework during this period in a child's development does not affect academic performance. In older students, it only has a slight effect in improving academic performance. What do you think?

Ground Rules: Open to AU and NZ members only. Each week, the TolunaTeamAUNZ will create a topic on the AU and NZ sites regarding a specific theme, and ask members to provide their opinion. Three winners will be selected from each Australia and New Zealand to win 3,000 points. Winners will be chosen at random from all eligible posts. Eligible posts must be in compliance with the Toluna Member Code of Conduct. Winners will be announced within 2 weeks from launch of Topic, and bonus points credited to member accounts via direct credit.

I think it should remain as an option, but not compulsory. Some children are just too busy with extra activities, or too tired in general from their school day.

Home work in primary schools should NOT be banned,that teach a child self-discipline and responsibility ! Teachers should play an effective part in overseeing it properly, showing his own interest + skills; that is what bond a child and his teacher.
Also, it is NOT the parents job to DO IT, that in any case defeats the purpose. It is parents responsibility to strongly encourage the children , stand together with the teachers and may be ADVISE the child a bit!
Although results/improvement may not be seen immediately; the coming years will definitely confirm what did the primary kid picked up!
It is a child's self - discipline and sense of responsibility , developed in primary ( or NOT) which pull the strings for them through intermediate, college AND later in life (or NOT).

The Americans have done their homework on homework alas it's generational I did homework at that age so did my parents I presume their parents before them did homework and so forth. Why ban those who really want to study for a future through homework, when other slacken off?
People in the workplace do extra hours of work outside of work, a similar equivalent to homework. Homework can be a fundamental stepping stone, in a child's life, towards working extra hours after work in their home environments after work.
Homework at Primary School is that first step in the world. Some parents will like it and some won't society has to live with it. Homework preps for assignments, at secondary and tertiary levels. What extra, including out of class, children can learn out of class means not that they can learn less at high school or tertiary but more there at a higher skill level of information because homework has developed the basics to allow for more advanced learning.

Homework should be reduced considerably but encourage students to participate in extra curricular activities that will broaden their levels of creativity. When I was in primary school, our homework was whatever we desired to do, therefore we had the option of creative choice. I was terrible at actually doing it, but when I did I really enjoyed having the option of choosing something I was good at and enjoyed. Sometimes the homework was learning a dance to my favourite song. The idea of school should be helping students flourish and reach their potential - everyone has a gift or a skill and we should always try and nurture those talents.
