As a human being, a student must have felt a little or a lot of loads when teachers provide additional task as homework. Homework is given to the student give impression that the estimated 7 hours of school is not enough. Physical and psychological burden can also be felt as a student’s homework lists keep growing. Indeed, if there is no homework is not named as school, but do not give an overdoses portion. Like a glass of water, if we add it continuosly it can be overflowing. Many of homework also make students become increasingly lazy as more difficult for them to determine their priorities. In terms of psychic, worst thing that could be caused by the homework is boredom, stress and frustration, and even more it can make students hate the school and hate to study. A more general problem is not the honesty of students that can arise because of too much homeworks and difficulties to complete it. This action could be cheating or doing homework in school which are not allowed.

Discipline and sense of responsibility can also be developed through the provision of homework. Students could be required to share time and began to organize their schedules well. The primary role of homework in school that should not be overlooked is as "Grade Booster" where the marks ​​produced by the students through homeworkt could affect their performance.

Homeworks are both harmful and helpful, like they train students to learn more, since if there were no hw-s many wouldn't touch their textbooks, but too much of everything is just sickening and a burden:)
