Homework debate

In your personal experience and/or your experience as a parent is homework pointless? Is it just busy work with no real merit behind it? Or is it a great way to let children work further on skills taught in school?

What do you feel about homework?

      I dunno...I have mixed feelings. In English Class, Advanced Lit, and English Honors I hated having homework. I always finished it in class way ahead of the deadlines but wasn't allowed to turn it in until then. Math homework was ok...I dunno. It can be irritating for the faster kids, especially in group situations. I always got out of group activities and did the entire packet myself
