About five minutes before I posted this, a question came up in the feed asking users to come up with innovative project ideas for a highschool project with a photoresistor. The question had no research, and it was posted originally without a homework tag. While this question was deleted (maybe a moderator/high-rep user can post a link to this question) after about five minutes, it is still disturbing that a question like this could even come up.
While this is an extreme example, and I know there are other Meta questions discussing the problem of deteriorating question quality and terrible homework questions, nothing has been done. Perhaps we should delete the homework tag and go through all of those questions, deleting and editing where appropriate, maybe we need to have a better homework policy, I don't know. But something needs to be done. Besides, this would conclude many back and forth Meta discussions. =)
So if anyone has any ideas on how to help this situation, post them as answers and the community can vote up or down to show which ideas are the best. Perhaps moderators can implement them.
