A few days ago, the news reported a local elementary school has banned homework and other schools in the area are following suite. If only that happened when I was in school!
Proponents say homework causes students undo stress leading to cheating and substance abuse plus it takes away from family time and fun. Others say homework instills responsibility and promotes what students learned in the classroom.
What do you think? Will students get into trouble for having extra time on their hands or is this the right thing to do?
