I am not a direct parent, but have looked after a lot of kids over the years.

My personal rule is: no homework until high school.

There have been a lot of studies done on homework and not one has shown any benefit. Basically it's busy work. Time is one resource schools complain about a lot but they need to consider using it appropriately.

In more modern teaching methods the work that appears more as "home work" is done on class, including as a group, individually,collaboratively and in direct instruction. "Lecture" is often done at home.

When you see it, it's like duuuhhhhh!
