I'm not sure who dreads homework more, students or parents.  How many nights have you stayed up trying to recall all the math you learned and forgot?  And how many times have you been frustrated by knowing how to do the problem but missing the mark on the methodology?  How many times have you heard your child say "That's not how the teacher does it?"

Some schools are trying to eliminate homework altogether.  Do you think homework as we know it is an outdated practice or do you think it's a necessary part of the learning process?
