This is an issue that effects both SAH and WOH.

Thanks anyway but I only have one in elementary school (only one in school period, for that matter) and he does his homework in afterschool care. You're new here so you don't know but we mostly homeschooled our 3 girls. 2 of them did spend some time in a Montessori elementary school but the only homework they had was to read, study spelling words and memorize the multiplication tables.

If any of my kids had a teacher like that in elementary school (granting the premiss that the girls went to school), it wouldn't have gotten done and would be sent back to school with a note from us saying why. Granting that it was the amount of homework instead of procrastination on the part of the child that was causing the amount of time involved in finishing the homework.

<....and that's great, if that style of education fits the child.

< You can't or at least you shouldn't judge an education tool simply because a school system doesn't use this tool wisely.

I think it is what I have seen here with the large public school systems here in Indy.
