POLL: Do you think Milton Public Schools students are assigned an appropriate amount of homework?

In a recent Patriot Ledger article, students, teachers, and parents weighed in on the tolls of what some see as excessive homework: “Nearly 90 percent of students admit to feeling stressed about their homework, the Institute of Education Sciences says, and 45 percent of students above the third grade spend more than an hour after school on assignments.”

Janet Sheehan, Milton’s assistant superintendent for curriculum and human resources, is quoted in the article, as saying “We don’t have many parents complaining about homework.”

The Milton Scene is interested in Milton parents’ (and students’) opinions about the amount of homework students are assigned.
