New Study on the Value of Meaningful Homework

Yes, homework can teach time management and other important skills, but who teaches these skills to a dyslexic student in the first place, who is in a perpetual state of overwhelm and frustration – having not even given skills to reduce their anxiety and increase their focus, let alone how to be in a state of orientation.
