Ah! So it isn't just me!
According to this CNN article, "Four in 10 of the parents surveyed said their children have too much homework to finish in one night..."

Sadly, this has been true for us many times, as Evan has had, IMO, some idiot teachers. One of the leading reasons we consider homeschooling each year is because we know we could teach our boys more in 3 or 4 hours than the public school system teaches them in 6 hour days PLUS homework.

I can honestly say that I can remember nothing I learned from homework.

Nowadays it seems even more like the teachers give it to make them look like better teachers.

You would think in over 200 years of history we could have developed something better than this, yes? No response required.
