Homework is important

Mike Raven answers your question.

Homework is important. From the earlier years of schooling to the end of high school (Year 12) the homework load should steadily increase to a minimum of 2 hours each week night. Relaxation or downtime is important as well as sporting pursuits (but not to the detriment of academic performance). Whenever possible parents should provide a variety of experiences to enrich the worldview.

I will talk more about these things in future posts.
