schools,,students,,homework assignments

by Amelia Goldwin (2017-07-12)

I with essay expert think our increasing tendency to confuse schools with businesses causes lots of our education problems. The work students do in school isn't paid because it doesn't benefit anyone but the students themselves. Homework, if it's not simply busywork, means more opportunity for students to learn (or, as homework is more likely to be practice on skills learned in school, to cement their learning).

By all means, object to meaningless busywork. And certainly, there needs to be a balance between learning (in and out of school) and other activities. But by equating homework to "unpaid overtime," I think you've demonstrated some major misconceptions.
