    It is absolutely crazy. Some parent feel the quality of a school is a function of the quantity of assignment they can ditch out. I absolutely disagree. More of teaching, class work, examples and corrections should be done. The few home work is to test how much of comprehension of the subject the student has appropriated or understood. There should be adequate time for rest, play or other form of leisure. That way learning is not boring but interesting.
