Editor's note: The education department of Zhejiang province in East China has started soliciting public opinions on a draft regulation to help decrease the study load for pupils. According to the regulation, primary and middle school students, with approval from their parents, can leave their homework unfinished after 9 and 10 pm respectively. Forum readers share their opinions.|
Excess homework is doing more harm than good to students. My daughter is in middle school and has homework every night and weekend. Every teacher says he only gives 15-30 minutes of homework, but if you multiply it by 7, that's way too much! This amount of homework is detrimental to students' health, growth and sanity.
