i work in elem. we are required to give them homework. most just ask them to read. send home one math paper (so parents know what skills they are working on,) one spelling paper (and the implication to study) and one reading paper. so they are given real assignment to turn in 3 days a week. in middle school i think an hour is fair but you must remember that what will take a gifted learner 30 minutes could take a struggling student 2 hours. in high school there is a problem with the current American system. all the teachers have their own agenda. at some schools they make them have meeting and talk about that... but not all schools. they may have no idea they are giving big assignments on the same night as 3 other classes... communication is the problem. but all the kids have different classes (some take spanish some take french.) with homework, it should not be a new idea. only things the kids
