Homework is independant study and a primer for you to be capable of doing work on your own when you leave school, because you're obviously incapable of doing so without it. It also helps improve your abilities in the language field you are using; which you appear to be having trouble in.
Homework is a good thing and will not be removed from schools or other educational establisments because it mirrors work's reports you'll have to do in a set time frame. If you don't do it, you don't get "detention" or "scolded". No. You get fired.
Nature is large enough to not whine about how we're cutting down trees to make paper out of, so it can get over itself.
