What does meaningful mean?

The Basking Ridge School District passed a policy requiring homework that is "meaningful in nature." I appreciate the effort, but what does meaningful mean? Are we to assume that teachers were already giving homework they did not think was meaningful and are grateful for being corrected? In this video, I look  more deeply into the issues behind this question.
