I don't think homework should be banned but lessened. It is to much. Sometimes we have things to do that is more important. We should only have to do 5 minutes for each 3rd grade 15 min 9th grade 45 min. We need us time but we also need work time but not too much work time. Research shows that it is healthy to have time for our selves. All of you who don't want home work it is understood. No one likes to work but it is important for our self management time management. My thinking is that you are looking at it the wrong way, think of homework like something fun or interesting.
