No. Homework, as far as I know, has no point. It teaches me nothing, and only makes my grade go from a B to a C. Because I don't do a lot of it.

I am all for homework in more than one sense (although you are talking about school homework I assume.).
Homework is a useful tool that can solidify anything you learnt that day. Many scientific studies have shown that you will remember things if you do them three times. At school, they make you learn something three times;
1) Actually teaching the topic in lessons.
2) Giving you homework
3) Covering that topic again as a starter a few days later to solidify learning
OR
3) When you revise the subject.

The third stage is generally an 'either or' situation, as time constraints on teachers these days are massive.
Outside of school additional work outside of hours allows you to keep on top of your workload. This is often referred to as homework in offices and roles where that sort of work is required or ideal.
