It's okay at my school because although we are technically supposed to do homework, no one cares if you don`t do it. I don`t remember ever handing in a piece of homework that wasn`t coursework or part of an essay or something.

i wish the u.s. had the common sense to do this too, theres just too much these days, why cant teachers use their time efficiently to teach us what we need to know instead of us taking the load for their incompetence?

i graduated, dont start with that poo

those are really cool parents.
"I think a bit of homework is necessary; but not loads and loads from every teacher as well as coursework and revision. There should be a limit to how much you get; not just not having any at all."

I completely agree with you. i feel like pile driving loads of home work is bad.
at my school one of the rules is as follows:
9th grade: 9 hours of homework each night
10th grade: 10 hours of homework each night
11th grade: 11 hours of homework
12th: 12 hours

That's a bit silly and not good preparation for later. I think a bit of homework is necessary; but not loads and loads from every teacher as well as coursework and revision. There should be a limit to how much you get; not just not having any at all.
