    Because the government compels people to send their kids to crappy schools.

    Yes, they do.
    People are required to pay for schools and thus use them, it's only right that they try to get the best possible outcome for their kids.

    Um, yeah they do. Gov't mandates a lot of things on curriculum and whatnot even for private schools and homeschool.

    Actually, there are a number of programs that allow a parent to pull their children from a school and send them to a private school using the tax dollars they paid. Plus, they could do what most people do...MOVE TO A GOOD SCHOOL DISTRICT. Public school is not a guarantee of a bad education.

    Sorry, there are no such options here.
    I can home school, send my kid to public school or private school.
    Of course no matter my choice, I still don't have the choice, to not pay for the crappy public school.

    If they know of the consequences of not doing the work and don't do it anyway then that is their fault.
    Here's the issue: People who think kids should be on detention for missing homework assignments care too much about Homework. Back when my school did detention (two school years ago), people only got Saturday Detention based on their behavior and tardies. Now nobody at my school, not even the school principal, gives out detentions for any reason. If they still do, it's very rare.

    Also, detentions would only be served if there's going to be buses available to take the child home. I'm shocked there hasn't been a lawsuit where a child was given after school detention but had no way home.

    It may be hard for the clever ones who have to set aside ten minutes of their time to a useless pursuit (no matter how many times a better person than that is required to waste time in the real world), the not so gifted have to better themselves over corresponding hours and improves themselves.
    If that's the case, why can't homework be extra credit?

    Re: Is Homework Detention necessary?

    Many schools need to bring back the concept of "discipline".

    And no, suspending students or forcing them to skip class is never a good form of discipline. It baffles me that schools think that kicking someone out of the school for a week or two is a punishment... Most kids that are misbehaving have bad family situations to begin with. What makes the school think the parents will even care? In reality the school administrators just don't want to do their jobs...
