Elementary school teachers make a mistake by thinking it's acceptable to go easy on the students because they are young. Teachers should have enforced strict homework and grading policy even to first graders. Teachers are not helping or doing them any favors by going easy on young kids simply because they are young.

Elementary school teachers have seven years to prepare students for middle-school and high-school. Seven years is a lot of time to make sure students have the willingness to do homework. If elementary school teachers fail students and not give credit just for trying, children would have been better prepared for higher education.
