My Homework Ate My Family Summary Families are being torn apart How are they being separated If families arent losing each other due to divorce or death of a family member then how are so many families becoming disconnected Homework is the answer Kids are given unreal amounts of schoolwork to be completed at home these days and family time is limited or non-existent for many Children have become puzzled while parents are pulling their hair out An example of such cumbersome homework being given out is that of Molly Benedict a sixth grader in San Francisco California who has enough homework to last her until the next morning as well as mind boggling algebraic math problems that stump both of her parents School board officials and teachers are being attacked harassed and questioned about the validity of the horrendous hours some students spend on homework every night The average grade school student spent 85 minutes on homework per night in 1981 and the average student now spends 134 minutes completing their homework This is almost a 60 increase of homework in the new decade Who or what is responsible for this drastic change in the length of homework given each night Perhaps the Baby Boomer generation can shed some light on the matter Maybe the Baby Boomers reminisce on their childhood and recall the load of homework they received on a daily basis If their children do not look as busy as they were in their younger years than they may assume something is wrong with the educational system There is and always has been a powerful drive to keep kids in school and doing their best especially in middle and upper class societies The majority of wealthy or well off parents expect their child to become college bound Therefore the more knowledge kids gain at an adolescent age the better Hypothesis My evaluation of this matter
