If the part about the HELP was emphasized and it became a violation to either post a blatant assignment or to DO a student's work for them, then it's valid.
Unfortunately, this has become a homework DO subject. And, what's even worse, you can get a violation for telling a kid to do their own work, but NOT for helping them cheat! What kind of lesson does THAT teach!
Then don't "help" us do our homework.
In an age where students can rip essays off the internet and plug their foreign language homework into online translators (which do a horrible job, I might add), "homework help" is probably the lesser of the evils. Hopefully users are just helping and not doing the actual homework for the students.
kids will be kids - they will always want answers to their homework - but they also need help in learning how to find the answers.
So yes, I'm glad yahoo has a place where they can ask questions to get homework help. It's up to the people who answer them to not give away the answers but help them find the answers on their own.
I think that it is fine. If the kids aren't learning, it hurts them the most and they are the ones who want everyone else to do their homework for them. It's their problem. Let them deal with it.
Sometimes it's possible to give answers that point in the right direction, but don't do all the work for the asker. For example, for a question that involves math or algebra, you could set everything up, and in the process explain how to set it up, but leave the actual equation-solving for the asker to do.
If others deicde to just jump in and give the answer, the bad karma from helping someone cheat is **their** issue to deal with. :-)
Yes, I think it should be allowed on EduQnA.com. I am 15 years old and come here for homework help. I do not ask for people to do it for me though. It would just hurt me in the future. I ask questions on here, because people help me, when I do not understand something.
