Limits on Homework, it's about time!

    Who thinks teachers give too much homework? My hand is raised.

    Don't get me wrong, I think some homework is good. But hours of homework prohibits kids from having outside interests or even just downtime. Last year, my daughter had meltdowns over her three hours of homework each night.

     So I say, hoorah for the new policy passed by the Broward County School Board and detailed in today's Miami Herald. For working parents, supervising homework often is the most exhausting part of our day, especially if you have a kid that likes to day dream. Limits on homework based on age, I'll all for it. How about you?
