Here is one source that clearly shows the negative effects of homework on students. However, Toppo is not the only educational writer that feels this way about homework.

The “delienquents” were talked down to and punished while the “will be” were praised and helped. “Smart” classes were held in the morning while trade schoolers were away and ended when they came back.

Rachel Veroneau Leasa Day English 101 February 10, 2013 Why Would You Cheat? People in college can have a hard time with some of their classes.

When Harrison was young he was overawed by his "posh" teacher who embarrassed him resulting in him feeling demeaned and docile. The first section is in the form of a memory emphasised through the embedded dialogue of the teacher showing how he is undermined as the teacher wants to make sure their "glorious heritage" is not "done to death" suggesting that teacher is aiming to undermine Harrison by discouraging him from reading the important roles. Similarly, in "Bringing Up", he emphasises his separation from his mother as she disgusted over him using taboo language. The use of embedded dialogue implies the different view on the Leeds accent emphasised in his mother being disgusted with him and believes he was not "brought up to write such mucky books!"
Salinger shows how Holden’s childhood have shaped his attitude towards others. Through Holden’s characteristics, actions and comments Salinger shows that events in our life can affect the adults we become. Holden tends to be a pessimist teenager that always sees the bad in people, especially in adults. He has the habit to use the word “phony” to describe people, and it seems like he has difficulties having a good social life, but he doesn’t really like to be alone. He has been kicked out of school several times; it seems like he does not care about it; however, he has a decent grade in English class.
