My son is only two and I was stressed just thinking about the amount of homework he will be bringing home one day in the future. So we chose a school for him to attend that doesn't believe in homework unless the student is having particular difficulty in a specific subject. Homework isn't just punishment for the student it is punishment for the whole family when mom or dad have to spend hours helping little Johnny stay up till 2 in the morning for his 5th grade history project. It makes everyone miserable and frustrated.
