  It's good that we have homework
Updated 14 February 2003, 09.39
Laura thinks homework is necessary
Laura gives her reasons why she thinks it right that kids have homework.

"I disagree with Ceri's report about kids relaxing when they get home and not working.

Children should have homework because it is the only way they learn for themselves.

In class, you copy off the board and get people to help you in class.

But I think that homework shows teachers what you are learning.

Busy lives

Unfortunately, people do have busy lives. I do as well.

I run at my local athletics club, play the piano, look after animals, go to Guides, and more.

I have to work around that.

A lot of teenagers hang around the streets and cause trouble, even with homework.

More trouble

What would happen if there was no homework? It would be worse.

More kids would be bored and causing trouble round the streets.

I think homework is good because you learn a lot more and it keeps you busy."

Laura, 13, Kent


Why don't you write us a Press Pack report - and get it published on the site?!

It can be about anything that's happened in your local area - or your views on the news.
