Homework Should Be Optional

By Madison Horne


Should students have to do hours of homework when they already know how to do something? Homework should be optional and it should be up to the student to complete the assignment. In math if they already know how to do a problem, they should not have to do 20 more of them. They should only have to do enough homework so they are able to do it right on the test. Doing a ton of homework gets really boring and makes people hate school. If students didn't have to do homework, they would enjoy school more and pay more attention. To solve the problem of homework, teachers could ask each kids to do only a couple problems in class and check if they're doing it correctly. They can make sure they are doing it right by doing examples on the board.
