Alot of people complain about homework. They ask what the importance of it is, and why we have to do it. Some people might think that just cause we learn during school, kids don't need to do homework. However, the idea of homework is not to punish you or to take up all your free time. It is to make you more knowledgeable in many areas and therefore more employable when you leave school. It also improves your thinking so you can deal with more problems in life, which is an essential part of your life.
