'depends on the age'; should teachers assign homework for students every day?

Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? Teachers should assign homework for students every day.

With the increasingly intense competition, people have to absorb more knowledge or novel concepts to avoid being eliminated. Such demand also applies to students and teachers assign daily homework for their students accordingly. However, is daily homework necessary for students? While some people believe that there is no completely sound reason to assign homework for students every day, other people do not share the same perspective. As far as I am concerned, whether daily homework is essential depends on the age of students.

Initially, there is no need to assign homework every day for primary students. As we all known, play is one of instincts of kids. During this period of time, children should not be subject to suppression to nature and stress from study. What's more, playing with friends fosters the cultivation of children's social manners. For example, this year Shanghai Education Department has decided to establish a rule that do not assign homework for primary students. The department leader says that the knowledge that primary students need to absorb is so easy that they can obtain it without repeated practice; meanwhile it is high time to cultivate the interest of study for students and too much assignment might cause negative impacts to students.

Furthermore, teachers ought to assign daily homework for junior school and senior high school students. During such spell, students should form good study habits such as reviewing after class and preparing before class. Besides, since new concepts in this time is difficult to acquire, students are necessary to repetitive train to effectively and efficiently obtain knowledge. An authentic report appearing in the journal of education shows that senior students in Shanghai are second to none not only in reading but also in math. Behind this phenomenon, Shanghai students have to stay up to do homework every day, so they have the advantage over students in other areas. Apparently, daily homework dramatically contributes to learning for them.

Last but not least, it seems kind of ridiculous that teachers assign homework for university students. Given that university students have the capability of independent study, even though the professors never assign homework, they would do some practice to understand brand new concepts. As an engineering student, for instance, my professors almost never give assignment. It is because we would read materials involved on our own. And given that my major is focusing on practice, it is hard to do experiments in my home.

After all, the condition of students in each period is so complex that the question whether teachers should assign homework every day cannot be simply answered. For students roughly 10 to 18, daily homework is in need; conversely teachers have no vital reason to give assignment for other students.

... avoid being eliminated from what? .... This is true, but I wish if you presented in a way that it shows a better connection with your topic.

As a result of the sever competition that prevails in the modern society, the students too are faced with many challenges in order to prepare themselves for future careers.

Initially, there is no need to assign homework every day for primary students.

First, I do not see any reason for assigning homework on every day basis for the students at elementary level.

As we all know, playing is an important activity for both physical and mental development of the children.

During this period of time, children should not be subjected to suppressionoppression to nature and stress from study.

hmmmmm.... well... this sentence has many grammar issues, both grammar and vocabulary. My suggestion for you is to write simple, yet interesting sentences. Try to make them shorter with one idea per one sentence.

.... yes, it is actually ridiculous and I am fully with you...LOL

Given that university students have the capability of independent study, even though the professors never assign homework, they would do some practice to understand brand new concepts .

... This second part is not really helping your reason, and sounds like going a bit out of the point. You should have strengthened the first part of with a bit more reasoning.
