Homework should be abolished

School is stressing out our youngsters, as evidenced in the high number of school students committing suicide.
We should, therefore, be committed to removing stress from the school system. A primary contributor to stress is the oppressive burden of daily homework given to the student. Wrestling with piles of homework parent and kids alike are exhausted. The truth is that much of the take-home assignments are needless.
After long-drawn school hours, kids return home and immediately get down to tackling the day's homework.
Where is the time to relax and do other extra-curricular activities? Little wonder that kids, these days,
appear highly-strung and reluctant to go to school. School-related stomach aches, headaches, sleep problems and depression are on the rise. The constant pressure of moving from one deadline to another leaves them perpetually harassed. Parents too have a hard time, often doing a major part of the homework to help out the child. Is homework necessary to get good grades? There's no foundation for this belief. The fear and pressure of homework exhaust students, killing their curiosity and most importantly their keenness and desire to learn. In many countries like the US, Denmark and Japan, schools have cut down on or entirely eliminated homework, since it contributes nothing to learning or creativity.

At home the debate over homework is yet to have an impact. Even though there's been discussion around inordinately heavy school bags which burden children, directly linked to the issue of homework.

2. Prepare a paragraph with an appropriate title to be used for the Counter-View Section on the following topic in about 120 words.

“Demonetization: a trap to catch a lion or mouse?”

You can take the help of the following points from the View Section

  1. Demonetization helps the government to track people who are having large sums of unaccounted cash
  2. Black money, illegal activities like terrorism funding, gambling, and also inflating will get reduced
  3.  Government gets a good amount of tax revenue which can be used by the government towards the betterment of society by providing good infrastructure

The biggest disadvantage of demonetization is that for few days there is chaos and frenzy among public. Everybody wants to get rid of demonetized notes as soon as possible. Sometimes it leads to law and order problem and chaotic situation especially in banks.  Because this is the only medium to change the old currency units to new currency units. Another disadvantage is that destruction of old currency units and printing of new currency new units involves costs. It has to be borne by the government and if the costs are higher than benefits then there is no use of demonetization. Another problem is that majority of times this move is targeted towards black money but if people have not kept cash as their black money and rotated or used that money in other asset classes like real estate, gold and so on then there is no guarantee that demonetization will help in catching corrupt people.

3.Counterview on the topic ‘should there be a law to force children to look after their old parents?                                                                            
                                                                                                                                                               The care and worry for the parents should be heartfelt. The law will compel the children to keep parents at the home but not at heart. No court can make children feel worried about their parent. Law helps those who make complaint. Would parents take legal action against children? They would prefer to suffer. Values are not taught, these are to be caught . Elderly people should be well protected and given the due care . It is the responsibility of the children . If any youth does not bother to look after his parents, instead of punishing that youth , his parents should be given helping hand by govt. or NGO. the government should open old age security home.Enforced help will do no better job.
