Banning homework or not banning homework is a stupid issue. The issue is the attention and effort parents put into educating and helping their offspring develop the ability and skills to survive and become productive individuals in a civilized society. The ability to reproduce is simple, but the ability to produce successful offspring takes effort and ability. With 12 years of free schooling available to our children in the US, as someone who survived well with 9 year in the war torn U.K.. I think we would have fewer failures if we addressed real problems instead of allowing and making excuses for failed parenting and failed schools. Why not lengthen the school year? Children are no longer needed to bring in the crops
