Dear Congressman Clark, First of all I would like to say that I think homework is a necessity for children’s education. However, with that being said, I by no means agree with a 5 th grader having 2 ½ hours of homework each night. A child cannot learn anything by sitting at home staring into books for 2 ½ hours a night. Children do not have a very long attention span and lose interest fast. If they lose interest in their studies they are not learning anything, just simply memorizing. The Chinese, for example, place less emphasis on exams and more emphasis on critical thinking skills and independent projects. A lot of the countries that outperform us in academics have 1 thing in common, their students have less homework. They also do not place as much attention on early education. The teachers in this country that think they are helping students by giving them a lot of homework each night really aren’t doing anything but hurting them. It seems to me the more homework a child has to do the more they resent school.
