Homework: Too Little or Too Much?

Dear Readers,

         I have recently read the document Homework: Too Little or Too Much? It Depends. There are three main ideas in this article.
Two Complaints

There are two main complaints about homework which are kids are getting too much homework and kids are getting too little homework. The reason for the first main idea is that. "Two common complaints that parents have about homework are as far apart as they can be: One is that there's too much homework and more of that even better the other is that there is too little." My thinking is that kids are getting too much homework.

Which Is True

The second main idea is that Tom Loveless is trying to figure out which statement is true. The reason for the second main idea is that "Educational expert Tom Loveless decided to find out which view is correct. On Tuesday he issued a report on his findings." My thinking is that more parents will want there kids to have less homework so that they can spend more time with their kids.

Interviewing

  The third main idea is that Tom Loveless is interviewing kids who have too much or too little homework. The reason for the third main idea is that " The amount of homework can differ widely from school to school, though. My thinking is that kids need less homework so that they can spend more time with their families.
