Are you kid that tired of piles of homework? Teachers all the us have moms and dads upset about how much homework their child gets. The avrage 8th and 5th graders from DPS get 3-4 hours for a 5th grader. Most 8th graders and higher get the avrage 6-8 hours of homework each night. That can efect grades in school because the amount of homework they get takes sleep hours away. So ask your parents to see how much homework you get. sleep is very important to get good grades in school but homework takes that away. So you may be tired and grouchy but homework could be banned.
