You know half the college kids today can’t tell you who won the civil war, who our Vice President is,read cursive writing or use pronouns correctly. By all means take away more opportunities to learn. Dumb our youth down more of the parents convenience.

I agree some teachers do give to much homework out but there is never enough time to teach everything in one day. If a child needs extra work it such be up to the teachers and the parents to talk things over. Most teachers likes when parents calls for meetings. I did on several times with both my kids.

Many European countries (including Finland) do not require homework and have some of the top education programs in the world. Just saying.

I can agree with a few pages of reading or a page or two of math for practice, but hours worth of hw is uncalled for. Kids need to learn to do assignments on time and study for exams if they go to college. Just do not wait till the last minute.

Just extra rewards for homework, that will end the problem.
