Homework — yay, or nay

Found an interesting website:
Stop Homework
So, what do you think?
I’m torn — I appreciate that he’s learning to buckle down and get on his work before he goes to play. But honestly, there are nights with no play, and that’s not cool either.
I mean, I hear people say he’s going to have it the rest of his life — but if that’s our excuse, why don’t we make him put on a suit and tie every day?

    I feel like the school system has our kids for 7 hours they should be able to get done in the day all they need too. If not they are wasting their time so they shouldn’t then make us waste our time with their leftovers. But I’m fine with minimal homework maybe twice a week for the sake of responsibility.

    I think homework every day is fine, so long as it is minimal. Then they learn to kindof get used to what may be coming for them in the future, but they are also still allowed to be children and play and all that.

    BTW, we put our silverware in handle up. simply because if we put it handle down, they poke through and won’t let the thing slide back in!

    I’m not a fan of NO homework, but I want to see a lot less of it! Is there an organized movement for that? Anyone? When my girls were running in track, they often wouldn’t finish homework until midnight! This is at an age where the experts tell us teens need 9-10 hrs of sleep. In other words, in order for kids to get homework done in a timely manner, and not sacrifice precious sleep, they can’t do anything else. Come-on! Math homework 5-day-a-week and weekends too? I’m sick of it.
    That’s the end of my rant….for now. Thanks for “listening”.
