Adam is explaining how easy it would be to eliminate the chasm between the haves and the have not’s, he’s saying if they were to do away with homework the kids without involved parents wouldn’t suffer the current disadvantage.
As a last generation latch key kid who never had a desk nor a light in his bedroom, when he had a bedroom I can honestly say I would’ve have gone much further in school without that study gap, this is mind blowing.
