Just realised that school homework is essentially preparing you for a lifetime of unpaid overtime.

In elementary school, “homework” was any work we didn’t finish in class. In college, homework is like unpaid overtime.

Making school kids do homework is just conditioning them to accept the concept of unpaid overtime.

Homework is one of the biggest bullshit scams the education system has ever gotten away with. It’s basically unpaid overtime for minors.
