Well, let’s put it this way. The amount of time that you spend in school is a lot, of course. But, the actual amount of time that your teacher actually gets to teach you the necessary information is not nearly enough time for them to even teach you everything that you need to know for that particular subject. Homework is a way for you to get some more practice because your teacher needs to make lesson plans for the next day, grade your other work, and attend meetings at school with the other teachers. Remember, your teacher might also have kids herself and they need to help their kids with their homework and other school work, too. Homework also allows your parents to see where you’re at in school which allows your parents to help you if you had any questions. Believe it or not, if you didn’t have homework, you would probably have to spend at least 4 hours in each class every day just so that your teacher can explain everything to you within a day.
