Study: Kids Have Too Much Homework

Study: Kids Have Too Much Homework

I've heard of 'overnighters' to get papers finished in college, but for high school homework?

A new study published by The American Journal of Family Therapy shows kids are being assigned much more than the recommended amount of homework. 

Here's what I found from the National PTA:

Both National PTA and the National Education Association endorse the 10-minute rule, which states that the maximum amount of homework (all subjects combined) should not exceed 10 minutes per grade level per night. That is, a 1st-grader should have no more than 10 minutes of homework, a 6th-grader no more than 60 minutes, and a 12th-grader no more than two hours.
