Homework: The great debate
Tension over how much homework
is too much is an ongoing debate in
homes and schools around the world.
On one side are parents and schools
who say that children need to study
more to maintain an advantage in an
increasingly competitive world. The
contention on the other side is that seven
or eight hours of school is enough,
and kids need time for other activities.
