Districts struggle with homework question

Count Sturgeon Bay School District Superintendent Dan Tjernagel as a father and administrator struggling with the future of homework.  School districts across the country are banning homework because of a number of reasons including teachers not grading it and parents complaining about the amount students get. Instead, school districts are encouraging students to read or participate in activities with their families. Tjernagel says there are no discussions about taking homework away from students quite yet, but can sympathize with parents as a father himself about the amount and sometimes the quality being given out.

According to the Wall Street Journal, the average elementary student gets 4.5 hours of homework a week while high schoolers get close to eight hours a week.
