This isn't a credible source. Also, studies show that 93% of students in Finland graduate from high school, and they don't have any homework, as well and shorter school days. Only 75% of American high school students graduate, and they have on average 3 hours of homework per night, which only makes them sleep-deprived and stressed. Although homework may improve their character, so does playing outside and being with friends teaches them the important social skills they will need to get and advance in the work world. Research by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) proved that in 4 hours of home-taken assignments weekly, the extra time invested in education has a negligible effect on productivity.
Responsibility- students should be able to learn the responsibility by keeping up good grades in tests in school instead of repeating useless assignments that they already did at school
Time management- the only time management skills student learn from homework is how they have to choose whether they would like good grades or mental health or a social/sports life, except they can only choose two
Perseverance- it's in the word itself- they have to persevere just like someone would have to persevere through something painful. someone doesn't persevere through a party or good meal. they persevere through a life threatening illness
Self- Esteem- Someone would learn better self esteem through completing something they think is worthwhile and something they are passionate about, like a piece of art, or making a new friend, or getting better at basketball. When students finish homework, the only thing they feel is relief that they can finally go do something they enjoy for 10 minutes before they need to sleep.
Glenda is just a counselor and probably grew up in schools 50 years ago when homework was writing two words on your personal chalk board.
