Write an essay against the motion on Should Homework be Abolished



Against the motion

Homework is, in my opinion, an integral part of any system of education. It is the practical part of what a child learns. I submit that if homework is abolished, the students shall have nothing to do after school. Moreover, their learning will not be enduring and permanent without it.

I should like to draw attention to the fact that the children are not fully developed in their minds at this stage. They are little capacity to retain anything without any practical demonstration in their mental faculties. If, however, a visual demonstration is given to them, it lasts longer in their memories. Homework is that practical demonstration of the learning, which is given to them at the school stage. I support, therefore, that homework should not be abolished, as it is necessary part of learning.

I strongly oppose the general view that homework keeps the students busy all the time and they have little time to play. I agree that playing is very necessary for the healthy growth of a child. However, a child does not play every time. After homework he can play with a relaxed mind them, it is not a worry at all. If, on the other hand, it remains yet to be done, his worries will grow more. Moreover, I do not agree that homework generates fear and unnecessary tension as submitted by my knowledgeable opponent. Contrary to it, it generates a sense of fulfillment and hold on the learning part. I fail to understand for what reasons the authorities even think of abolishing it.

I feel very strongly that if homework is abolished, children shall have much time. Then it would be difficult for them to pass if usefully. They would indulge in indulge in idle gossips. May I ask what, then, will they do in that spare time? In my opinion, homework is not a matter of very long hours. I support the view that the teachers giving homework know the capacity of a child. My knowledgeable opponent has submitted that it makes them busy day and night. It seems not sound and convincing. I, therefore, whole-heartedly oppose the motion that homework should be abolished.
