Do you think kids get the right amount of homework?

Asked in Downtown Mountain View. Pictures and interviews by Hannah Kim

"I think we get a good amount of homework. If we got a little more it would be more educational because some people's grades drop a little bit because we have too little homework."

Blake Sandstrom, Virginia

"I'm for children not having homework and having the choice of different activities on their off-time and getting the work they want done in the eight hours that they're at school."

Janice Miller, Palo Alto

"I think kids are getting the right amount of homework. We have to take time to do it, but it's not pushing us too hard."

Sophie Lloyd, Los Altos

"I don't think kids ever get enough homework at all."

Karamjeet Gill, Fremont

"I think that's up to the kids themselves. You always hear people complain about the amount that they get, but I think it's doable, you just have to budget your time right."

Scott Kleckner, Palo Alto
