Although homework is generally thought to be negative by the large part of the student population, it actually does have benefits. The main thing that makes teachers go wrong with it is by over doing it. The reason for homework is to refresh and sustain the things that you learned in class. Reasonable for math: worksheet with 15-25 problems depending on level of difficulty. What teachers actually assign: 50 math problems that take an average of 4 minutes to calculate. If we had reasonable assignments, which we sometimes do, homework would not have the extreme negative connotations that it does.
In a perfect world:
Teacher: Alright kids, for your ninth grade English homework today read a chapter, and write a four sentence summary.
Kids: Ok! That should take about twenty minutes! Yay!

Teacher: Alright kids, for your ninth grade English homework today read five chapters, and give me a page on the representation of disestablishmentarianism in the novel.

Homework, something that the teacher gave you to spoil your fun when you're at home
Solution; did the homework at school library and handed in the next morning.

Problem solved;

The ultimate end to "your time". Assigned by your evil teachers who aren't satifised that you put in 7 hours a day mon-fri of work that you would rather take a dump on than do. If somebody was prepared to do that with me I'd be pleased. But no. They decided that you can't get home from schhol, kick your shoes off and do what ever it is you wanna, you gotta start doing your homework. It makes me wanna puke. Some homework might actually be worth your valuble time. Other shit isn't. Pour exemple the subjects which you don't like/couldn't give a shit about/is not anything to do with what you wanna be when your older.
My maths teacher is the biggest bitch when it comes to homework. We have maths on mon,tues and weds. she expects our monday homework in on tues, and our weds h/w in on thurs morning. How unfair is that! see said if it changed, she'd have to see our homework on the tuesday instead of monday, and our class voted against that happening cos some people has stuff to do/more h/w than they have on a monday. I almost stood up and scream "FUCKS SAKE, JUST DIE MRS OWEN"
Homework has made me cry/lose sleep/kick things and hurt my own foot/want to top myself. It should be abolished.
I must point out however that some teachers are safe and don't set homework ever/very rarely/easy h/w. Those are the teachers I respect
*My class is sitting in Maths with Mrs Ford learning Trigononmetry*
Mrs Ford: Right, for homework I want exersise 2.2 questions 1-7 for next lesson please.
Me: How will this subject help in later life
Mrs Ford: If you wanted to work in construction
Me: Well I don't. I could be doing something useful in the time it takes me to do this stuff
Mrs Ford:*realises she got nowt to bring to me*
Shhhh and get on with your work, you're disrupting everyone else
Me: tuts and comtinues playing pac man on my phone

A form of child and teen torture in which they find out they cannot relax after a hard day's work at school, as they have to finish the 3,000 word English essay which is due in for the next day.

The work that is given to you after many laborous and tormenting hours at a place where the work should originally be done called "school". Such work is given for three reasons: "to keep kids off drugs", to desensitize children and get them used to doing things they really don't want to do, to do the teaching that the people paid to do it in the first place can't or refuse to actually do.
Everyone loves a good homework assignment, don't they?
