Alfie Khon's The Homework Myth is appropriate for describing your situation. That is, even though the research and studies show hw has no direct effect on student achievement in lower grades and does not teach responsibility many hang on to the myth that is does. Paraphrasing Kohn, either teachers and administrators don't know anything about hw, or they are too lazy to find out. The best year I had in terms of student achievement, attitude towards school and cooperation was the year I didn't assign homework.
