Some other sites in the SE network have recently been moving toward eliminating the homework tag. I think this would be useful for us to consider as well, particularly in light of questions like this one - if you look at the comments, the OP says "Also there is a homework tag so I assumed it does allow homework questions." That's one of the main arguments for removing the tag, both here and on other sites.
Removing the homework tag would not change our policy on what sorts of questions can be asked here. Specifically, it is now and will continue to be OK to ask a conceptual question that arises in the context of a homework assignment. Also our existing homework policy would be more or less unchanged, except that we would no longer ask posters to use the tag homework for homework or self-study questions.
Should we go ahead with removing the tag?
If not, what exactly is the purpose of keeping it?
