Not for my kid, I'm homeschooling her. But I don't understand why for all the homework these kids have it doesn't translate into actual learning? When she was in public school she had an hour homework each night grades 4K-1st. And I am sure there is much more in the older grades. Yet in my district less than 40% graduate and most have a 3rd grade reading level. Why? And I think kids are pressured by parents to do too many activities. One school district near us wants to make it mandatory for graduation that you have to be in an extracurricular activity. That is insane!

Holy heck BlooBird... where do you live??!! I dont know that I have ever heard of a 40% graduation rate.
At my daughters public high school they have a 98% graduation rate with 75% going straight into a 4 yr college. I think I would move or home school to if I lived where you live.
