hard for me to concentrate. Spelling words, vocabulary practice, and study guides for testing all fall under this purview. Administrators explained their decision by pointing to the large majority of students who lacked at-home resources to help them with their homework.
Even besides these points, there are other reasons why homework hinders learning. Is it something that the teacher gives you to keep you out of trouble after school? Getting it done in the morning means rushing. No homework is even good for teachers because they dont need to correct it because they already have enough to correct. I then catch the bus and go home so thats organized for you! If you do the homework yourself and just rush through it, you can make careless mistakes and that will lead to incorrect information being given to your teacher as well. Students have not had that daily homework practice in any subject that keeps the concepts alive and moving in their brains, so that means that much of the practice time and teaching time and testing time had to come during the class time each day. But for Bonnie Stone, an elementary school teacher in Tulsa, too much homework is too much homework. Still, homework is so ingrained in the fabric of schooling that studies revealing its minimal positive benefits have been largely shrugged off or ignored altogether. Homework takes time, and it keeps students up late at night getting the work done.
