Parent: My child has too much writing homework.
Teacher: How much time is your child spending on their writing homework?
Parent: My son went up to his room last night at 5:30 to start working on his writing homework and when I checked on him at 11:30, he was still going. Six hours—that’s unacceptable. No child should have six hours of homework.
Teacher: Was your son working on a laptop with internet access?
Parent: Yeah, so?
