Homework: how useful is it?

Homework is an established part of school life in most countries around the world. However, there is still a debate among teachers about whether homework has a educational value. On the one side are those who that it takes too much time away from other more useful activities. On the other are those who see homework as reinforcing school lessons so that concepts will not be forgotten.

What is often neglected in this debate is parental responsibilities and whether or not the child's home provides support for homework. Parents in families often don't have the time to make homework a priority or aren't able to a computer or additional books. Whatever money they have goes on the basic necessities of life - accommodation, food, clothing, and heating. However, the idea only middle-class parents support their children's education is quite obviously wrong. Not all well-to-do parents give the support they should, and some parents living in the poorest conditions find the time and energy to themselves in their children's homework.

Read the passage.

This year has been terrible for many businesses, but the movie business has been hit especially hard. As a result of the coronavirus, cinemas are facing a double-hit: few viewers and no new movies. Each side of the problem only makes the other side worse.

First, the viewers disappeared. Due to COVID-19, theaters around the world were closed down for months. Movie makers began to delay the release of new movies since there were very few places movies could be shown.

Now cinemas have re-opened in many places, though usually with seating limits. But even when movie theaters opened back up, fans didn’t return to the cinemas like they used to. At a time when social distancing is needed to keep people from spreading the coronavirus, few people would like to sit in a closed cinema with lots of other people. And without big audiences, movie studios don’t want to release new movies.

Studios spend massive amounts of money to produce movies. They rely on huge sales of movie theater seats to earn that money back. With very few people going to the movies, it’s almost impossible for an expensive movie to earn back the money it cost to make.

This summer, many people were closely watching the release of the movie Tenet by Christopher Nolan. The movie was expected to be a big hit and encourage lots of people to go back to the cinema. It’s hard to say how the movie did since no movie has ever been released in a situation like this before. But it definitely didn’t bring people racing to theaters. So far, the movie has earned very little, compared with big hits from other years.

Other studios have learned from Tenet's experience, and are deciding to delay the release of their movies. The new James Bond movie, No Time to Die, had already been pushed back to November. Now the movie is scheduled to come out in April 2021. There's no word on when other big movies like Wonder Woman 1984, and Marvel’s Black Widow might be released.

Soon after the Bond movie was delayed, CineWorld, which runs about 540 Regal Cinemas in the US and 120 CineWorld theaters in the UK, announced that it was closing its theaters. The company isn’t saying when they might re-open. It costs a lot of money to run a cinema. Most theaters have to pay a lot of money for rent. They also need to pay their workers. As a result of CineWorld’s theaters closing, up to 45,000 people could lose their jobs.

For now, two other big US theater chains – AMC and Cinemark – have about 80% of their theaters open and say that they plan to stay open. But both companies are now only earning about 1% of the money they made last year.
