Bad facts about homework

Posted on by TRACIE L.

From kindergarten to the final years of high school, recent research suggests that some students are getting excessive amounts of homework.In turn, when students are pushed to handle a workload that’s out of sync with their development level, it can lead to significant stress — for children and their parents.Both the National Education Association (NEA) and the National PTA (NPTA) support a standard of “10 minutes of homework per grade level” and setting a general limit on after-school studying.For kids in first grade, that means 10 minutes a night, while high school seniors could get two hours of work per night.But the most recent study to examine the issue found that kids in early elementary school received about three times the amount of recommended homework. Published in The American Journal of Family Therapy, the 2015 study surveyed more than 1,100 parents in Rhode Island with school-age children. The researchers found that first and second graders received 28 and 29 minutes of homework per night.

The sweetness of a bird is revealed by its singing; the ferociousness of the tiger, by its loudness; but for man, the spoken word is defined by the truth which is revealed, and not by its sweetness, nor by its loudness. --  7th Century Chinese Proverb Federal Disability Retirement for the Federal and Postal Worker:  Beyond being unable to perform useful and efficient service (March 7, 2013)       Federal Disability Retirement is a compensatory benefit available for all Federal and Postal employees under FERS or CSRS, who have a minimum of 18 months of Federal Service under FERS, or five (5) years of Federal Service under CSRS.  It is not a benefit which is widely advertised, and indeed, it is surprising how so many people believe it to be identical to Social Security Disability benefits.  Beyond a lack of knowing about the benefit itself, however, is the problem of understanding the legal criteria necessary to become eligible for Federal Disability Retirement benefits.        Such legal criteria allows for the Federal or Postal employee to become eligible if one can prove that the medical condition prevents one from being able to perform one or more of the essential elements of one’s official, positional duties.  Thus, the standard for eligibility falls far below the necessary requirements to become approved for Social Security.  Yet, if one were to make an initial investigation of OPM’s (an acronym for the U.S.
