Homework is not worth the trouble. It can improve a child's learning habits, reinforce topics, and allow parents to be involved in their child's learning, but having too much homework can be harmful to students, puts low income students at a disadvantage, and there is a lack of evidence that homework actually helps younger students learn. So, it should be an optional device to potentially improve students learning. It should be encouraged, not mandatory.

Homework can be stressful. It can induce anxiety into students and cause them to fall into a depression. This is an epidemic in america, so we need to take action against it. Homework does more harm than it does good. So if we can get rid of it, or at the very least drastically reduce or change it, we can change the future for students.
