TypeError: this.setState is not a function

Questions:

This is my code:

const cookies = new Cookies();
var name = (cookies.get('name'));
var key = (cookies.get('key'));
console.log(key);
const theme = createMuiTheme({
  palette: {
    primary: amber,
    secondary: blue
  },
  root: {
    flexGrow: 1,
  },
  bottomView: {

    width: '25%',
    height: 50,
    backgroundColor: '#FF9800',
    justifyContent: 'center',
    alignItems: 'center',
    position: 'absolute',
    bottom: 0
  },
});
class Base {
  constructor() {}
}

class Homework extends Base {
  constructor() {
    super();

    this.state = {
      topicBox: null,
      payloadBox: null
    };

    this.publish = this.publish.bind(this);
    this.handleChange = this.handleChange.bind(this);
  }
 publish(event) {
    this.setState({value: event.target.value});
  }
  handleChange(event) {
    this.setState({value: event.target.value});
  } 


  async loadTest() {
    try {
      //grab courses
      const response = await fetch('https://classroom.googleapis.com/v1/courses?access_token=' + key);
      const json = await response.json();
      //coursemax vars will eventually be user defined
      var coursemax = [2, 2, 2, 2, 2, 2, 2, 2];

      if (json.courses != null) {
        for (var course = 0; course < json.courses.length && course < 9; course++) {
          //grab course info
          var coursework = await fetch('https://classroom.googleapis.com/v1/courses/' + json.courses[course].id + '/courseWork?access_token=' + key);
          var coursejson = await coursework.json();
          console.log(coursejson);
          var assignment = "";
          for (var assignmentnum in coursejson.courseWork) {
            if (assignmentnum <= coursemax[course] - 1) {
              //add in assignment
              assignment += "<p>" + coursejson.courseWork[assignmentnum].title + "</p>";
              //"Due: "+coursejson.courseWork[assignmentnum].dueDate.month+"/"+coursejson.courseWork[assignmentnum].dueDate.day
            }
          }
          //making ids to render
          document.getElementById('class' + (course + 1) + 'info').innerHTML = assignment;
          document.getElementById('class' + (course + 1)).innerHTML = json.courses[course].name + '</b>' + ':' + '<br/>';;
        }
      }
    } catch (err) {
      console.log(err);
    }
  }
}
var app = new Homework();
var config = {
  apiKey: "xxx",
  authDomain: "xxx",
  databaseURL: "xxx",
  projectId: "xxx",
  storageBucket: "xxx",
  messagingSenderId: "xxx"
};
firebase.initializeApp(config);
app.loadTest();

function publish() {
  console.log(this.state.topicBox, this.state.payloadBox);
  const itemsRef = firebase.database().ref('Users');
  const item = {
    title: this.state.topicBox,
    user: this.state.payloadBox
  }
  itemsRef.push(item).set("name");
  this.setState({
    topicBox: '',
    payloadBox: ''
  });

}

const LoginPage = () =>
<MuiThemeProvider theme={theme}>
      <div>
        <AppBar position="static" id='title'>
          <Toolbar>
            <Typography type="title" color='inherit'>
              MVHS Homework App
            </Typography>
            <div id='avatar' color='inherit'><Avatar>{name[0]}</Avatar></div>
          </Toolbar>
        </AppBar>

      <input 
        type="text" 
        name="topicBox" 
        placeholder="Name" 
        value={ this.state.topicBox }
        onChange={ this.handleChange } 
      />
      <input 
        type="text" 
        name="payloadBox" 
        placeholder="Details"
        value={ this.state.payloadBox } 
        onChange={ this.handleChange } 
      />
      <Button variant="raised" color="secondary" style = {theme.bottomView} onClick={ this.publish }>
        Secondary
      </Button>
      </div>

    </MuiThemeProvider>



export default LoginPage

In the code above, there is an error on:

this.setState({value: event.target.value});

And the Error is:

TypeError: this.setState is not a function

Why is this happening?

EDIT: The error I believe is the only issue with the code right now. Feel free to tell me if any more errors. 🙂 (Am I nor establishing the car correctly?)

EDIT: Will this code sent a value with the edited text inputs to the database?
