University of Indiana’s study also proved that teachers may not be giving beneficial homework.
Some homework is just used as a time filler for students, and is not really helpful towards a student’s education.
She also cites additional benefits of homework: when else would students be allowed to engage thoughtfully with a text or write a complete essay?

In response to the National School Board Association’s Center for Public Education’s findings that homework was not conclusively related to student success, historian and NYU professor Diane Ravitch contends that the study’s true discovery was that students who did not complete homework or who lacked the resources to do so suffered poor outcomes.
Ravitch believes the study’s data only supports the idea that those who complete homework benefit from homework.
