           Some Comments:

           “To come home after 6 hours of school and do more work is difficult.”

           “Homework is appropriate but came from school with ‘no homework policy’ and loved it.

           “Homework is appropriate but prefer no digital.”


            State guidelines are 10 minutes per grade.

            Cena will ask teachers to not hold students back for recess or Brain Boosters if         homework is not completed.
