Your reply to the post you commented on makes no sense. The question still stands. Why should children do school WORK for free. As far as doing book work without the teacher, that kind of reminds me of people who try to get a degree online. Apparently, in most instances, it just doesn't work. With no teacher to ask questions to, it is apparently too easy to get lost. Also, in Finland, they have the most educated students in the world. At the very least, they are in the top three. How did they do it? They did away with home WORK! Why that worked is because as most people know, if you want to get more work out of somebody, just treat them better. Despite the success in Finland, they should pay their students for what they do. Who knows. They might do even better.
