Do you agree that some of the homework sent home is not at your child's level? Whether it be too high or too low?

Yes some homework of our children is actually not for children but parents have to do the homework some answers even the aprent swill not know they have to refer books or use the internet to find the answers, even some drawings children cannot draw some things, parents have to draw, so it is taxing on parents also.

I don't have kids but as I was not a good student when I was young I think schools should only have students study the things that could help them in the future, I don't believe students should have to study history, tell them about it yes but to me history is gone and it is not going to help you in the future, it is only the students with good memories who will do well in that and a few other subjects, I feel this and a few other subjects should only be there as a tested subject if a student feels that is an they would like to specialize in. many areas of life are not even being discused in school because they are too busy study things of no earthly use for the future....steps of her soapbox.
