Homework is stressful and takes up way too much time. The only good thing it does is give you practice, but it still does more harm.

School funding must be stretched. We pay hour, by hour for the teachers that teach the subjects and we pay for the upkeep of the facilities. Revision, and rehearsal is an essential part to learning. By re interpreting the information we learn we process it on a deeper level, and the rehearsal of information allows it too sync in to our long term memory and even allow it to become natural.

There are so many psychological studies supporting the idea that these practises are essential to learning information to the extent we do. We could revise, and practice our studies solely in class, but that would waste time which can be spend on teaching the actual subject with the expertise of the teacher.

You're reasons in round 1 are true, but most kids still have trouble with it and trouble revolving around it. It gives practice and helps you learn, but there is a level where they need to stop. Agreed?

school funding is so garbage, nothing can be done until that's fixed. Personally I like homework as practice but they shouldn't be for marks unless it's a specific project to demonstrate certain skills.
