    • Dear Nate,

      I like your insight on homework and how it effects the minds of students and how at an early age it isn’t beneficial for students and how they do on tests. I think that homework is important but not 3 hours of homework a night I liked how you used resources to complement your ideas. I also liked how you gave examples of how homework could help but also why they shouldn’t give homework to growing minds.
      Do you think that high schools should give our less or keep their homework levels the same?

    • Dear Nate, I also have heard about Finland getting rid of homework and now being considered being one of the most smartest countries in the world. Both arguments about homework beneficial and unbeneficial have a lot strong evidence on both sides.

    • Dear, Nate
      I agree with your post about homework, your post “Homework,Punishment or Privilege” because I would always argue with my teachers about homework or get mad. I thought t did because some of my teaches told me it helps us remember but when you said Finland took homework ff of school and now their one of the smartest schools I was amazed because that is a good piece of evidence. One part of your post that stands out to me is the evidence part about Finland because that is great piece of evidence. Another part I read is where you said is homework needed. This stood out to me because we need more people to ask questions like this.Your post reminded me of when i was younger I didn’t want to do the homework and felt like I didn’t need it. Thanks for your post . I look forward to see what else you have to say about the world.

    • Dear Nate,
      I am intrigued by you post about homework being a priviledge or a punishment because this is something thats been very controversial during the past couple of years. Many say that homework will allow you to retain knowledge. while others mention that its just a waste of time, Like me. One sentence that you wrote that stood out to me was, “Finland got rid of homework a few years ago and are now considered one of the smartest countries in the world”. This stood out to me because I believed that homework was a part of every school, but knowing that schools in finland no longer assign homework and are considered one of the smartest contries in the world is amazing. I will give a second thought of doing homework when im assigned a whole lot of it. Thanks for your writing. I hope you continue writing about interesting topics such as this one.

    Nate commented on the post, The Boyfriend Loophole

    Emily, your piece was very well written and informative. Your voice carried through your work as if you were speaking directly to your audience, and I had no idea about this issue of the “boyfriend loophole” and i couldn’t agree more with your solution. Hopefully this issue will be lessened in the future.
    -Nate
