Homework should not be banned, it provides necessary practice for topics outside of school. It boosts the average of a student, and prepares you for college. By having homework outside of school it prepares you for college where the majority of the learning is up to the individual outside of school?
Here is the thing, I think students should not get homework because they have sports or a job after school. When students get home and do their homework, it doesn't help them get ready for college. Most students are just doing homework because they need the grade to help them pass the class and graduate. If a student has a job, and let's say is working from 3-9, when in that time frame does the student have free time to do their homework? I believe that when a student goes to school, teachers teach them the lesson and than they're done. Giving homework its just a waste of time.
