I'm not saying homework is bad but getting 130 questions of algebra 2 homework on a lesson that was half-ass explained to us isn't reasonable at all.
That is too much homework. You need to talk to the parents, your guidance or social people at the school and they (your parents) to the school officials.

It is the kids and parents that make the schools top rated. The so called zip code factor. I have subbed all over our county and really believe this. Schools and teachers do indeed help especially with the lower performers. Mostly they are facilitators.

Hopefully teacher was kidding or maybe the kid misunderstood, but YIKES this is sad. Our school almost never gives weekend homework except for long term projects.

Again It is the kids and parents that make the schools top rated. The kids excel because of you.

To all: Teachers cannot possibly correct the volume of stuff you are all suggesting. If they are doing these practices I would talk to the administrators.
