From an early age, children get homework for the next day, giving them hardly any social time at all considering they need an early night. This won't be good as they won't feel happy and their standards will drop.
As they move up to secondary school, children become timetabled for three types of homework a day at a grammar school in year eight, and we start even earlier, so social time is scarce.
Also, family arguments can occur as parents will be constantly asking their unresponsive, tired children to complete it in time.
When teachers pile on homework for a day, some cannot be completed by the deadline, and so detentions follow when the child isn't at fault.
Teachers also have trouble as they have to spend more of their short free time marking the homework they set.
The point I am trying to make is: homework doesn't necessarily help, but it may just be something that gets in the way of life for both children and teachers."
