Now I feel like taking this to deeper level. Where do you actually use something like homework skills at a job? Not really anywhere, unless you have a really obscure and hard job. With a quick google search I have found some information relevant to this topic:
The website on the link I posted does have some good points. However, that does not change the fact I don't like it. As it says, it does not prepare you for anything in life but more homework. It can induce a lot of stress as well. But schools still use this method. Why? I think that the people who run those schools need to find a different method for advancing our academic careers.
