So far we've lucked out and all the schools my kids have gone to seem to have a less is more philosophy. They aren't trying to cram tons of stuff on the kids at an early age. And the kids still excell because they aren't so stressed they're ready to burn out in 2nd grade. But I've heard some horror stories from other people. I think they expect way too much from the younger grades and not enough from the older grades.

Zoey- I hope you don't ONLY depend on a teacher to educate your child. The parents play a VITAL role in a child's learning too...VITAL!!!! I am a fan of HW, for I want my child to reinforce the skills taught at school, AT HOME WITH ME. I do think some give TOO MUCH, and am not a fan of that. To give a little each week is HELPFUL.
