After reading through the replies to DaveAuld's post from yesterday[^], specifically the comments about QA, I started wondering if we might be better off embracing the homework questions in a new way.

I don't see the rate of homework questions declining in the future, so what if there was a separate QA area specifically for them?
A QA area dedicated to answering basic questions from students that need a different explanation than what they got from their teacher. I know this already happens, but the noise level in QA is so high that a great answer to a question might not be found by other students with the same problem.
There are many dedicated members that do a great job of answering questions in QA every day, but I know there are other very qualified members that don't want to deal with the current format.

Let me be clear. I am not saying we should do their homework for them. In fact I think there should be a report option specifically for that, so those questions can be kicked back without even having to post a message to explain that. Couple that with the ability for Protectors to move questions from one area to another.

I am not claiming this is an optimal solution, but do you think something like that would make for a better or worse QA experience?
