The homework annoys me. My 10th grader leaves for school at 7:30 each


morning and gets home at 6:30 after cross country practice. He then studies and does homework until he goes to bed. He has a study hall, but it's his 2nd period and the homework they assign from the day before is due by midnight that same day. So the only homework he can knock out in study hall is from his first period class. And he can't leave studying for tests until his morning study hall the day of the test.

He's a good, responsible student, but I feel bad for how much time he spends on school. Then I read studies that homework has not even been shown to boost learning and academic achievement and I wonder what the hell are we doing to these poor kids. Hopefully he's not totally burned out by the time he gets to college.
