Greg Toppo agrees with these statements on the positivity of homework for struggling students. Toppo displays his agreement with the topic when he says “While homework is thought to be harmful to students, Toppo says ‘But he said homework may have other benefits. For instance, it keeps parents aware of what their child is learning in school. ‘I’ve had some very emotional parents come to me about having been told by teachers that their child is struggling, that there might be a learning disability,’ he said”(Toppo). It is becoming easier to see how helpful homework really can be, to struggling students especially.
For example, cultural feminists look to the different values associated with womanhood and femininity as a reason why men and women experience the social world differently. Other feminist theorists believe that the different roles assigned to women and men within institutions better explain gender difference, including the sexual division of labor in the household. Existential and phenomenological feminists focus on how women have been marginalized and defined as the “other” in patriarchal societies. Women are thus seen as objects and are denied the opportunity for self-realization. Gender Inequality: Gender-inequality theories recognize that women's location in, and experience of, social situations are not only different but also unequal to men's.

Americans tend to blend love and happiness sometimes, which can be explained by the fact that from an early age on kids tend to relate the love and acceptance they receive from their parents to the success, i.e grades they have in school. This relation between love and success is also witnessed in religious environments. The fact that a person is accepted by God is often related to their bank account and grade of success. Not only would it be hypocritical to assume that we don’t need money and success to be happy and feel loved, but it would also go against the vision of the original American Dream, where thanks to hard work a family lives happily in the suburbs, have their kids go to college and have a car. But does money always bring happiness and love to people?

The terms cannot be defined unless in context, because the definitions have changed over time. Keep in mind; in the 1970’s it was taboo for a relationship to exist between two people of the same sex or different race. Nowadays, they’re tolerated at the very least. The terms race, class, gender, and sexuality are also socially constructed, meaning that the dominant group assigns value to the different definitions of race, class, gender, and sexuality. For example, in the United States in the 1950’s, it was common for middle class white Americans to be considered “good”, whereas non-white Americans living in poverty were to be considered “bad” or even “dangerous”.

Gender Identity Disorder Gender Identity disorder are people who associate themselves as the opposite sex of what they currently are.

Homework is a necessary component of every successful student's education. By doing homework, a student will learn independent thought, perform better in school, and provide a greater chance for economic success in their post education lives. But on the other hand, sometimes teachers tend to give off too much homework which becomes very stressful. Stress due to homework can cause many things including: lack of sleep, slipping grades, fatigue, unhealthy eating habits, depression, and many more other factors.
