Making them stay in during recess, or stay after school to finish an assignment they didn't do might help teach them that it's important to do their homework. But for high schoolers, yeah, just fail them.

    And it is important. Sometimes the assignments themselves are stupid, and don't teach you a whole lot, but learning to do your homework teaches you to be responsible, and it helps you prepare for college, when the assignments you're given to do out of class are much more important and critical to your education.
    There are so many OTHER ways to teach children responsibility. Isn't 6-7 hours of school a day enough? These are kids we're talking about. For goodness sake, most adults only work for 8 hours a day with no homework.

    The educational edifice already has my kid for over seven hours a day, if you can't teach him what you need to in those seven hours.... then maybe you can cut some of the fluff and BS out and streamline the more necessary things. After 7 hours in class, a teenager doesn't need to spend three hours at home doing homework and studying. Give their @#$# brain a rest already.

    The homework should be purposeful. Don't teachers have to create assignments that are measureably designed to meet the requirements of the measurement/assessment administrators and their "learning outcomes"?

    And back to the OP, which isn't about the homework itself per se, should students who don't do the work assigned to them be punished?

    Well, since I don't believe in homework, I would have to say no.

    As a matter of fact, my kid does think I'm a rock star, but not because I hate homework as much as he does.

    Of course, if he doesn't have any homework I'm just as likely to put him to work on the house or yard, or else invite him join me in some amusing frivolity involving boxing gloves or rubber knives or padded escrima sticks, unless we go out and kill some local wildlife for supper or something.

    Its one of the reasons my children will NEVER set foot in a public school for the purpose of education. I hire tutors and they are educated that way. They go to a public school part time for socialization purposes only. The public school curriculum is inferior and tedious.

    Should college students have to do work outside of class, or should they simply be able to attend classes and "absorb" all the knowledge?
