• homework should be age and grade appropriate. I see Pre-K children with a sheet to trace the letters of the alphabet or numbers. Some have little cards with words on them to learn. Where I live many Pre-K children do not speak or read English. They usually have only one page to copy the letters or numbers. Home work for Pre-K children should only take 5 to 10 minutes to complete. Most elementary children's homework should be between 30 and 45 minutes per day total. Middle school about 1 to 1 hr. 30 minutes. High school 1 hr 30 min to 2 hr 30 min. If a student desires to do more they should be given the opportunity to do so. Today many high school students have employment making excessive homework difficult to deal with. Home work is important and should not be overlooked but it shouldn't be so excessive it becomes a burden discouraging the child from wanting to do it. I know as I was one of those children.
