I believe that homework rots our brains, it's a proven fact that kids who do homework HATE school because its so stressful

And I suppose you have evidence on how "homework rots students' brains?"

Homework is not a task that teachers specifically assign to intentionally stress students out as they joyously lick our sweet, salty tears from our faces. Instead, homework is a fairly positive thing for two reasons: homework helps students practice on recently learned concepts and occasionally refreshes our memories with older ones, and it also can improve students' grades.

Homework typically accounts for around 5% to 15% of a student's grade per marking period. As long as students can make the effort to complete their assignments, they're bound to get high marks.

Homework is also a very useful tool for practicing. If students encounter an unfamiliar problem, or are unsure how to solve it, they will be able to ask the teacher regarding this to prepare for exams.
