Fresh call for a longer school day

I agree.

""What do you think about children having assigned reading during the summer?" I asked Donald Coppola (a Carmel NY psychologist).

"I hate homework," he said. "I think it's the ruination of the American family."

"I think that parents are burdened, and children are burdened all day long with what they have to do. Parents come home and get on their kids' backs about homework," he said. "There is no time for the family to sit around, play a board game, relax, enjoy themselves."
