Child Counselor Protests Homework in Arizona

A child counselor from Arizona who believes that children shouldn’t be given homework before sixth grade has taken to the streets to protest homework. According to azfamily.com, the counselor, who is leading the weeklong protest at a street corner, doesn’t think children should be given homework before sixth grade. “They’re already getting in trouble in school for not being able to sit for six hours,” she said. “Now they’ve gotta come home and do homework. So, now mom is screaming at them to do their homework. It’s slavery is what it is. It’s a horrible job. It’s a six-, seven-, eight-hour job that they’re not getting paid for.”

    I couldn’t agree more. Child labor laws were passed for a very good reason. I also agree that ADD and ADHD are largely artificial disorders that were invented to prevent the schools from taking responsibility for their failure to meet our children’s educational needs.

    I am a teacher. No child needs to have homework. There is plenty of time for practising the application of a concept in the period provided for that subject. After 75% of the class period, a teacher can ask the pupils to write a two-sentence summary of what they learned that period in an on-going journal. Then, add some references like page numbers of a book(s) or a web address to learn more if necessary. What kids DO need to learn is how to handle stress, how to be organized, how to express themselves well orally and in writing and how to hit the high points or the main idea and to remember some vital details that support it. Students need to comprehend what is going on. They need to know how to compare and contrast, see clearly the cause and effect in relationships, evaluate, analyze and critique. They need to be able to think and see globally and in detail. They do not need homework. Homework has never been good practice or good food for the mind. If “homework”, per se, would involve about a half hour of reading per evening, with each “discipline” having one of the five nights,that would be sufficient. For example, Math reading on Sunday, English on Monday, Social Studies on Tuesday, Science on Wednesday, and Humanities/foreign language on Thursday. Teachers can post the readings and know the following day of “their” previous night that the assigned reading was read, then that is when that topic is addressed in the class. Teachers should urge students to apply to life what they are learning in class and students can then be putting down in their journals what they did, how it evolved and how it helped them. Let students discover how it all can apply and then by jotting it down in their journal for extra credit or for class discussion sessions is far better than “doing homework”.
    I hope homework is abolished. It’s better for teachers, too, they don’t need to be correcting papers all night just to pass back and enter grades. With the paltry pay they get and the disrespect they get, they need to just be able to go home empty handed and have a nice evening with family.

    I’m a student. I disagree with having homework because most of the tasks that we’re set are hard and most of the time have absolutley nothing to do with what we were learning in the lesson, so then we get stuck we cant do the homework then get detention for it. People may think because I am a student im just being lazy but now we get so much of it, its just stupid, also we have to carry heavy books to and from school just to do maybe a little sheet. I dont really see the need to do 1 hour of lesson then come home and have to spend maybe another 3 hours doing the homework you’ve been set!

    I am a sophomore in high school and i believe that homework is unnecessary. Many adults think that us students only have 6 1/2 hours of school every weekday and we get the weekends off. That is NOT true… I often go home and spend 1-5 hours on my homework a night. And on the weekends, we usually have AT LEAST 2 hours of homework, sometimes more. My friends and I often discuss the unfairness of the situation… it is very difficult to have a social life, visit with your family, get enough sleep, and finish all your homework. If I add up the total hours of school work that I do a day, it averages out to approximately 9 hours a day. If the schools want us to do more work, then they should jjust keep us in school for an extra hour and give us no homework. It usually takes twice as long to finish my homework when I am at home rather than when I am in a quiet classroom where I can focus. If we stayed in school for an extra hour, and had no homework, we would still have much more free time than we do now. With the increasing amount of homework, throughout years, decades, I really do hope that by the time I have children, and they are in school, something will be done about this unnecessary amount of work….. 🙂

  19. Elizabeth McDeavitt says:

    Homework is so unnecessary. It does not reinforce learning as it is presently used. Teachers need to make learning meaningful and that should be done in the classroom. Incentive to learn more on a topic is what is valuable and is what is important. A talented teacher leads the learner to the well, and wets the learner’s appetite to drink, or, drink more. Extra credit, then, is what will separate the enthusiastic learner from the average student. It seems now that homework is assigned to justify the course or the teacher’s half hearted efforts to teach are then seen by the teacher as just not up to snuff, so the teacher assigns homework to make them feel as though they’re doing enough to promote learning. It’s a bust, though. Kids hate it, and it turns them off to school, learning and keeping an open mind and being curious. Getting this reactionary attitude about learning from our youth is going to ultimately harm our society.

  25. A concerned teacher says:

    Homework is meant to reinforce the materials that are being learned in class. I do feel that some teachers use it for the wrong reason. Some teachers give homework so they don’t have to teach, which in my opinion is the wrong reason. It should be limited to 20-30 minutes a day maximum. Student do need time to practice skills that they were just taught. The homework also needs to be gone over the following day so the students know exactly what they did wrong if they had mistakes. Giving the homework back days or weeks later is NOT going to help the students, they need instant feedback. I know that students don’t enjoy homework, but in the long run if it is assigned correctly and used as a tool instead of a punishment or ” busy work” then it helps everyone involved. Teachers can use that to see what and where students are confused.

    I am a 6th grader and I do not believe homework is neccessary. I find it keeps me from learning new things more than it teaches me. In fact, it doesn’t teach me anything at all! I find that the information my teachers want me to memorize is intensely boring compared to all the other things I could do with my after school hours, therefore I forget all the facts and statistics I am forced to swallow.
    “It’s a hor­ri­ble job. It’s a six-, seven-, eight-hour job that they’re not get­ting paid for.” This is utterly true. Some would argue that we are payed with knowledge, but we are not. Most teachers at my school do not seem to try to get their students to learn. They try to get them to obey. Many of my teachers simply wish to move the students along to the next grade, and the next, and the next. My teacher, the students around me, and my school in general keeps telling me, in a way that cuts deeper than mere words, that I will go through all 12 grades, then become a factory worker or a secretary.

    I am in 8th grade and up until halfway through 6th grade, I was a straight A student. So what happened? You could say I got lazy but you’d be wrong. I was always lazy but the homework only took about 15 minutes before. So in 6th grade I got all A’s except a B in English in both the 3rd and 4th quarter. No big deal. Then 7th grade rolls around and I start getting nothing but B’s C’s and D’s because that was when I started getting large amounts of homework. I just couldn’t do it anymore. I never had the energy, I never had the focus, I never had the strength for it. Eventually I stopped doing homework altogether and I sort of justified it because I always got A’s on the tests. My parents found out and they tried micromanaging me but I didn’t make it easy for them. I wish I could have explained to them that the homework was unnecessary but it’s hard to make a case for that when you have a D in math. The problem is that you’re assigned more and more homework the older you get. This makes sense at first but when you really think about it, is there really any reason to assign an hour or 2 of math homework when we only needed 15-30 minutes of math homework in elementary school? What I’m saying is, in elementary school, the concepts we were learning were appropriate for our age and we only needed about 15 minutes of homework. The concepts I’m learning today are still appropriate for my age so shouldn’t I still only need 15-30 minutes? It’s ridiculous. And ya know what makes me seriously wonder if they’re just trying to waste my time? When the concept we’re learning is easier to learn and do, they give us twice as many problems. Does that make any sense at all?

    It’s not the hours you put into your work that counts toward you remembering what you learned. It’s the work you put into your hours.

    I have no problem with English homework or science homework but I hate math homework and I think it’s completely unnecessary.

    One last thing I haven’t mentioned is that I didn’t do any of the homework for chapters 7 and 8 in my Honor’s Algebra class this year and yet I got 100% on both tests. I had 12 missing assignments at one point (I turned about 8 in) and yet I still had a 75% overall.

    So I guess what I’m trying to say is…

    OUTLAW MATH HOMEWORK!!!!

It is horrible to see and force him to do something he does not want to do… plus they give him stuff that only an adult could answer or do and so the homework is not only for him, it is for the parents also… I am a single mother of 2 and when I get home from work, I spend at least 1 hr 1/2 helping him and my daughter with their homwork, some times 2 hours because they have to read books with many pages, then I make dinner, then we eat, then I clean our mess, then I bath them and get them ready for bed… It is a weekly routine and we have no time to sit around as a family co-exist, talk and play….

    I’m a freshman in high school and this past year I’ve had to deal with around 5-6 hours of homework a night. Usually about 12 hours of my weekend is also spent doing homework. I definitely think that students could learn just as much without the excessive amount of homework. Some of the teachers in my school don’t teach our classes at all-in fact, I have one teacher who assigns us irrelevant classwork during our hour and a half class period then assigns us an hour or two of bookwork for homework. Sometimes our teachers will just leave the class and not come back for around a half an hour. I wish my teachers could find ways to teach us the required material without giving us so much homework. I miss my free time! Now my whole life is school for around seven and a half hours, then soccer practice, then homework until bedtime.

    Homework isn’t so bad, it’s just how much they give us. If they give you 10-15 minutes a night, it doesn’t matter. But hours and hours of homework a night does matter. We already go to school 5-6 hours a day, why do we need to bring it home too? It’s stupid. If they want us to get all the work done, then just add an extra hour of school. Then, the teachers could help the kids who didn’t understand it, and nobody has to spend all night on homework. I do an art class durning the week, and I always have to rush after the class to get my work done before it’s time for bed. I see kids all the time stuck doing homework all night instead of having fun. It’s not fair. They are turning 10-15 of a little learning into hours of it without a break. It needs to stop.

    I am an 8th grade student taking high school classes and I come home to a lot of homework for each class its very stressful.Also since I don’t have a Computer it is hard for me to do computer work.Homework is so stressful and it does not even matter in our grades…some assignments does not even get graded.So why so much.Ever student gets effected by this stress.Classwork barely getting finished and less participation.

    This is a very meaningful and important discussion to me. I am in sixth grade already, and I just love how you wrote,”This is a job that they don’t even get paid to do.” It’s so ridiculously true that I regret not doing this type of thing when I was in lower school with my friends or something. Not to mention that we don’t even need the extra stress either. The grades are also going to go on our permanent record, so if we can’t do it because of sports practice, or band, or some other crazy thing, it WILL go on our records. If we miss too many assignments, we may not get into a good college either because of our spoiled records. Not to mention, research shows that stress can cause many problems with your life as well. In conclusion, homework should not be a thing, even less being forced to sit down and do work for an hour (trust me I do have to deal with this every day because of after school care, I know pure torture right?)

    Homework causes SO many problems between I and my family. Mom is almost always yelling at us (my siblings and I)
    And it causes lots of problems. Also, I stay up till almost 10:00pm doing homework. When I wake up at 6:00am I’m exhausted! I can’t focus at school! All the homework results in bad grades but NOT doing the homework as well causes bad grades. Ugh- homework SUCKS!
