Homework

Good or Bad

Homework has historically been given to stuhdents to reinforce what they learn at school, and ultimately to help them learn the material better.

However, too much homework is not helpful, and can be counterproductive. Excessive amounts of time spent on completing homework can take away from a kid's social life, family time, and limits participation in sports or other activities. The amount of homework a teacher can give to a student should be restricted, and only assigned due to necessity.
