I believe that teachers should cooperate for homework. Too many kids get too much homework. Kids should not be up till 11 at night working. Especially teenagers, they need their sleep. So if teachers cooperate about this, students will get more sleep and be ready for the next day

(Personally I agree that students today receive an unreasonable amount of homework.)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Many students see homework as an annoyance rather than a tool. Whenever a student does his/her homework, there are basic life skills that come into play. Students learn responsibility, time management, perseverance, and self-esteem. Also, studying comes into play when doing homework. Developing good study skills is a must if a student decides to attend college. Homework in such amounts is important also because when students are in college, they are more independent than they ever have been before. (In a school setting.) Being able to be responsible and manage your time correctly is must if a student wants to pass classes. Also, homework can bring teachers closer to their students through discussion. Another reason is that homework is a good way to practice what will be on tests and quizzes. When a student learns a skills through an assignment, they are better prepared for tests. Lastly, doing homework and turning it in on time can help create punctuality.

I do agree with you about homework being practice. The amount of homework though is too much. i have read that students are getting an all time high in amount. This homework thing is out of control. The students are getting lower grades when they are up late. We don't want our society to be full of people who don't know what they are learning. It is important for the students to be alert in class.

Well of course students are getting an all time high. Currently there is need for students with more unique skills than what is being taught in school. Going to school should spark your interest in something and give you desire to pursue it. Also, maybe part of the problem is actually the students mindset. If you go into school expecting to much homework, any amount you get will seem like to much. If students were more confident in their abilities and more trusting in their teachers we would have students who would actually realize that what they are learning might be important. If students took more of an initiative to learn while IN class, they wouldn't have to stay up very late trying to do homework about material that was taught that day.
