Writing and making arguments is a great skill for children to learn so I’d hate to see it discarded entirely.

I’d ramp up in-class testing and decrease the amount of homework essays. Any homework would be geared toward learning a concept (I.e. read this chapter on x) how the students actually learn is up to them. The tests would be in a controlled environment and make certain that they understand the subject.
