Does anyone think that a freasonable amount of time should be allowed for homework to be done/handed in? DD has a particular teacher who sets homework and demands that it is in the very next day. This means that DD is now committed to dedicating every Monday evening to homework for this particular teacher. We have a regular commitment on a Monday evening and this seems so unfair.
My DD's is in Year 8 and she gets 1h20 of homework each night. Last year it was 1h. They are expected to do it the night it is set, which is why there is a homework timetable. Some of her teachers would ask for it to be handed in the next day even if they didn't have a lesson, so that it could be marked and handed back by the next lesson.
It doesn't matter if they have other commitments, as far as the school is concerned.
