Procrastination is obviously bad. Waiting to do an assignment 10 minutes before it is due makes the user rush and therefor create sloppier work and have half answered questions.

"Procrastination is the best underutilized tool to prepare high schoolers for jobs who demand a lot in a very short amount of time and you have to "make the grade" in that short period of time or you could get fired"
No one wants to hire someone who procrastinates, because they will do a worse job than one who takes time to carefully check work, perhaps even double check the problem. If you are in a hurry you are more than likely to not have time to get it done, and will come up with answers that may not even earn you points. Your theory that people do better work when they are in a rush is false, and you have no evidence to back it up. Yes absence of evidence is not evidence of absence, but if it can be proven without evidence it may be dismissed without it as well.
