No doubt, the student would fail if he/she chooses to ignore homework.  In the
same token, teachers and parents fail if they choose to let it happen. I think
it is teachers' job to motivate and encourage homework by students as far as
possible, and the parents' to create the environment at home for school work by
the child.  I do agree that some parents are not giving priority to supervising
and ensuring homework is done and failing in their duties of guidance.
