Rest is sweet after labor, but what do we call another round of labor after labor, without rest? Research has shown that those who have enough rest after a long day filled with activities tend to make wiser and good decisions, while those who work round the clock, non-stop, are liable to making terrible decisions. After a long day at work, every worker wants to go home and rest for the next day, but it is not so with students. Students spend almost the same number of hours- on the average, as workers, but are not spared from homework. This is nothing short of punishment. A popular saying: “all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy” falls nothing short of being true. The purpose of homework is defeated when a student becomes dull by reading all day.
Children do not need to spend all their time on a particular activity all day, or they will be bored and gradually dissociate themselves from the community. When a child has spent over 8 hours in school, it is only appropriate and considerate that they are not given homework. This will help them to have enough time to play, sleep, and spend time with family members. The history of homework was traced back as a punishment for students who refused to participate in actively in-class activities. Why should punishment for a set of people become generalized? Children would prefer to engage in physically creative activities and appeal to their senses, but homework is far from this. For example, boys between the age of 2-5 would rather play with toys than complete school homework. This is justifiable as children need to relax after a long day at school. No student likes homework, those who do it; do so because of their grades or lack of choice, but they would rather have no homework left alone to their choice.
Rather than produce balanced children, homework produces robots that may not have feelings or empathy for their fellow men. Some may become anti-social and may never change until they die. Many researchers have argued about the relationship between homework and academic achievement. However, some claim that children who do their homework tend to perform brilliantly academically. In contrast, those who do not perform woefully have a biased result and can be proven with more constructive research. It is possible for a student that does not do his homework to perform brilliantly. Children vary in ability and comprehension; some may understand and memorize what is taught in class instantly; others may need repetition to understand and remember what was taught in class. This is where homework comes in handy- for students who need to repeat things over and over before it sticks. Even for students who need repetition, it is not compulsory; through homework, the teacher can repeat a topic another day or give the students a test to put them on their toes.
