Homework is a part of every students life, and the question is, is homework really beneficial? And does homework lead you to have a successful future? There have been many studies to see if homework is beneficial to students, and most of the research have been positive. It improves academic achievement, test scores, and makes the student feel confident in his or her intellectual ability. The main problem with homework is that students are getting too much of it, and are getting overwhelmed causing personal problems such as sleep deprivation, headaches, anxiety, and other mental health issues.
People who oppose homework often express that homework is useless because it doesn’t have any benefits for us later on in life, nor give us any real life skills to live a successful life. A study from the Hispanic Heritage Foundation found that 96.5% of students across the country said they needed to use the internet for class assignments outside of school, and nearly half said they could not do their assignments because of the lack of technology resources. So many kids around the world don’t even have access to the homework they are assigned making it nearly impossible to achieve academic success.Tags: Judge Memorial Catholic High School
