Should homework be mandatory?
Doing homework empowers children
students how to teach themselves and work independently.
Having to plan time for doing homework teaches students time-management skills.
Homework allows students to take more time on an activity to do their best without as many social pressures in the classroom.
Homework does not empower children. It is the opposite of empowerment. It often forces them to spend additional time and resources on irrelevant concepts without immediate feedback resulting in insufficient levels of learning.
