This is too much homework

I understand finishing a project over spring break or a reading assignment but
Math
50 math questions a day online
Social studies
Outline each section in chapter 10
Write the definition for vocabulary
Section questions
Chapter test
Science
Same thing but chapter 13
Reading/Writing
Type a 10 page 12 font single space short story

I am sorry that is too much work for a fourth grader over Spring break and none of the other fourth grade teachers assigned that much work. We are suppose to be camping Wednesday to Saturday.
DS has a sub for the rest of the school year. She only started at the beginning of the month.

Your point is? China has a one child law and many kids are abandoned.

A 10 page paper for a 4th grader is ridiculous. Homework has been proven to have no benefit until about the 7th grade. Giving HW during a school vacation is unproductive. Teachers are not expected to work during the school vacation. Children shouldn't be either.

I am a HS teacher.

Well except the math I don't see any of it interfering with your plans. As far as math maybe talk with the teacher to see if he can complete extra problems so the day you travel is covered. If not well most campsites have WiFi.

Absolutely not true. In other countries only the elite are educated. In America all children are educated. So you're comparing the most elite students against our average. Skewed statistics
