One word. Practice. Homework aims to help us master certain skills. At least, that's the homework I've had to deal with. If there is no practice, then excellence will not be achieved. The way I comprehend homework as well is the preparation it can help you with when it comes to the real world. If gradually and in a proper manner I were to get used to being bombarded with work at home, I could virtually/theoretically prepare myself for future jobs.

Homework allows practice for future endeavors, and teaches responsibility and organization skills.
Homework allows children to work at their own pace, without peer pressure.
Homework allows time to study for tests, and go over work that you did in class.
Homework is a necessity!

As much as students don't like to do homework, it isn't possible to ban it altogether. Students need to realize that the point of homework has nothing to do with teachers trying to make up for lost time or intentionally cutting into students' personal lives. The concept of homework prepares students on the concept of needing to put in overtime for jobs, whether white collar or blue.

Homework is a way for you to practice what you are learning. If you didn't have homework, you would have to stay in school until you finished your practice, and since everyone works at different rates, you'd be there until the slowest people finally caught on.

I'm a pretty disciplined investor and pretty disciplined buyer. I do my due diligence. I do my homework. I don't waste money.

Homework teaches children work ethic. They should have it.

i think that having discipline and a routine is important in the learning process. If there isn't ongoing reinforcement, we can go through a month without learning or doing much (I speak from experience!!)

I agree with you Michael. That happened to me when I was a kid. I did not have a routine. I basically did what I wanted to do and no one guided me. I did not learn a thing.

I'm out of touch with how much homework kids in the US get.... There's probably quite a bit of variance in the amount of homework depending on where one lives. Maybe some kids need more homework!
