Homework is a form of suppressing a child's individual interests so that they do not develop any ideas of individual worth and proceed to fill a job that is needed to keep everything functioning properly when he or she is not at school. Like school, people who challenge the idea of homework are seen as stupid because they are unwilling to memorize things that people before them thought or did in an effort to appear "intelligent." In American society, it is vital that one takes a job working under an employer as someone who helps keep the economy and social order functioning as it should rather than developing his or her own indivdual interests and possibly changing the way we look at life.
Go to school. Do your homework. Get a job. Retire. Die. You won't be remembered. You didn't make an impact. But you did help keep America's economy functioning (yes, I did intend to start a sentence with "but," and despite what some moronic English teacher might have told you, that IS okay). Good job.

Work assigned daily from teachers. You work hard all night getting the work from that day done, and get even more the next day. Gets progressivly worse as you get older.
In kindergarten our homework was to jumprope 50 times. We had that assignment twice, and no other homework. Now we have at least two or three essays a week along with a whole crapload of other assignments from the rest of our classes. And most of the teachers suck at teaching.

An obsolete form of punishment enacted by teachers with no lives, homework helps teachers with nothing better to do than math problems impress their hobby onto students who would otherwise partake in a finite quantity of educational participation. Originally instated as a revenue producing mechanism in the middle ages, homework’s humble beginnings stemmed forth from Feudal kings minimizing the intellectual growth of serfs by limiting their educational advancement through repetition of previously developed skills and formerly acquired knowledge.
Also, Homework serves as the first word in the acronymic name God gave to the place he would burn sinners for eternity, and is the predominant form of punishment there.
My Rhetoric teacher thinks she's so conscious of modern social conventions, but still assigns homework. How base. Now, watch as I get a C for not doing homework and then monitor me as I use the skills I taught myself in would-be homework time to achieve a status of social prominence and leave a lasting impact on society far superior to that of a 'Rhetoric Teacher'.

Something teachers give you which you will not do until five minutes before it's due if you did not do it during lunch or spent the night before halfassing it because instead of doing it you came here and typed down definitions.
I've got AP English homework that was due today, but since I went to the zoo instead of going to school, I decided not to do it when it was assigned, a week ago. Now, it's 1:11am and I am not even halfway done.

Overtime without pay coming from a job that doesn't pay in the first place.
This is not me talking; it's a scientific fact: Homework is BAD for your health.
