Many people in America now think that
teachers give students too much homework.
They say that it is unnecessary for children to
work at home in their free time. Moreover, they
agree that most teachers do not properly plan the
homework tasks they give to students. The result
is that students have to repeat tasks which they
have already done at school.
Most people agree that homework is unfair.
A student who can do his homework in a quiet
and comfortable room is in a much better position
than a student who does his homework in a small
noisy room with the TV on.
