Im in the middle of 11th grade and shortly before I transitioned to grade 9 in 2009 I was told that high school teachers normally assign LESS HOMEWORK? I just wanted to know if this is actually true or not. Effective this summer, you can say that I have had a good three years of experiencing high school and all the ups and downs that it has to offer. I have read news articles online such as this
regarding teachers that assign homework each night that takes an average of THREE HOURS for the average student (like me) to complete. I was never burdened with a workload as big as this when was in elementary school, however I just need some clarification as to whether the difficultly level actually goes down, the system changes, or if it's just based on mental maturing and environmental factors.
I have a gut feeling it may be all of the above.
