This quote from Harris Cooper, of Duke University, sets the bar pretty high and can be very startling to hear.
So what are reasons to not have homework assigned?
At home, HW is pretty much busy work that hinders, rather than helps
The child does not learn as much, and may even be turned off by the assignment
This would negatively affect the child throughout their time in school
The most well documented issue is the dinner fight because the child does not want to do homework
Instead, classwork which should stay just there. In the classroom
Are there any questions?
