Decrease Homework in Miami, FL K-12 Schools

Stop all the Honework nonsense!

My 6 th grader goes to school all day, comes home at 5pm to do homework for another 2-3 hours. This is getting crazy. She has to use the weekends to make up homework assignments and it is getting in the way of her child hood. If we do not stop all this homework non-sense, our children are going to end up with PTSD and/or other mental issues. Please use school hours for homework and tutoring or whatever is need to be an "A" school. At the end, that is all that the schools worry about, not our children's health and mental well being. If this continues, we have to home school and hen what? Social issues? Come on!!

This goes to all public and charter schools. We reside in Miami, Fl

I agree. Homework takes up almost all our family time. The amount of homework is ridiculous and does not motivate kids to become better students but rather creates more frustration for them.
