I think homework should be illegal. You spend how many hours per week in school, and that isn't enough learning? Maybe instead of homework teachers should find some better ways to use your time in school. For college students it is different because you spend far less time in class than high school and younger. So homework is fine for college students.
Nobody really "gets it" unless they practice, practice, practice. Just ask any coach. A young persons vocation is to learn...and lots of homework is part of that. When you finally graduate from college, then your homework MIGHT lessen. Unless you become a teacher!
