Excessive homework — or to state the argument more accurately, any homework at all — is physically taxing on students, many of them very young, after they have already spent a full strenuous day in the classroom. Projects that students are expected to complete at home often pose a burdensome expense on parents, who may not have a ready budget for the last-minute purchase of needed materials. Assigning homework also adds to the workload of teachers, who must grade these assignments in addition to their everyday work of preparing lessons.

As they say, I became a diligent student and earned my reward being included in the list of honor students every year. Now that I am a parent myself, things are quite different. Every night, I will always ask my kids if they have any homework to finish for the next school day.
