Also someone mentioned its a way of involving parents in what the kids do at school. This would only work if the parents actual show an interest in school work/homework. Unlike my parents...
Most teachers recommend1 and 1/2 to 2 hours at home for every one hour school in each subject.
So they have normal 6 periods a day consisting of 4 or subjects.
So they get home at 4pm how on earth are supposed to do that get the required sleep, required exercise, some down time oh and hold down a part time.
It's physically impossible.
@Party of Three
That's a hectic evening schedule! From memory our childhood in Australia (~20yrs) ago was way different.
Home 3.15pm. Nap till 4pm. Yes we napped after school till uni years.
Bum around till 5pm. Only allowed once activity a week and both my brother and I had to have them on the same day. No way mum was going out every day.
Study time every Mon-thurs 5-6pm. Without fail. Whether we had homework or not. If not mum would set up some reading or math questions for us to do at the dining table as she cooked dinner /did jobs.
Dinner 7-8pm when dad was home. Bed 8-9pm. Up at 7am.
wifey of hubby who is always away. mother of two girls who are always amusing.
In year 10 they 8 subjects.
