My son will be in 7th grade next year (which is the first year of junior high in our district). His 6th grade teacher has been assigning a lot of homework this year to prepare the kids for more homework next year. However, I have talked to several other teachers who have had children in jr. high and they have said there is hardly any homework. Do you assign homework each night and weekends? He is a very responsible boy who always finishes on time if not early. I am just curious what others do. Thanks for any responses.
