Experts continue to debate the benefits and drawbacks of homework.

But according to an article published this year in Monitor on Psychology, there’s one thing they agree on: the quality of homework assignments matters.

“The data shows that homework over this level is not only not beneficial to children’s grades or GPA, but there’s really a plethora of evidence that it’s detrimental to their attitude about school, their grades, their self-confidence, their social skills, and their quality of life,” Donaldson-Pressman told CNN.

Kindergarteners received 25 minutes of homework per night, on average.

To conduct the study, researchers surveyed more than 4,300 students at 10 high-performing high schools in upper middle-class California communities.

They also interviewed students about their views on homework.The researchers asked students whether they experienced physical symptoms of stress, such as headaches, exhaustion, sleep deprivation, weight loss, and stomach problems.More than 80 percent of students reported having at least one stress-related symptom in the past month, and 44 percent said they had experienced three or more symptoms.The research involved a series of interviews with students, teachers, and administrators, as well as a survey of a total of 128 juniors from two private high schools.About half of the students said they received at least three hours of homework per night.For kids in first grade, that means 10 minutes a night, while high school seniors could get two hours of work per night.Experts say there may be real downsides for young kids who are pushed to do more homework than the “10 minutes per grade” standard.They reported having little time for relaxing or creative activities.More than two-thirds of students said they used alcohol and drugs, primarily marijuana, to cope with stress.The researchers expressed concern that students at high-pressure high schools can get burned out before they even get to college.“School, homework, extracurricular activities, sleep, repeat — that’s what it can be for some of these students,” said Noelle Leonard, Ph D, a senior research scientist at the New York University College of Nursing, and lead study author, in a press release.
