Some things were never explained to me while my daughters were growing up. Well, more like it was kept a secret. How they ever learned this school homework policy, I'll never know, but they knew it, or maybe they just made it up as they went along.
Here is an explanation of that policy they so closely followed:
Students should not spend more than 90 minutes per night. This time should be budgeted in the following manner:
15 minutes looking for assignment.
11 minutes calling a friend for the assignment.
23 minutes explaining why the teacher is mean and just does not like children.
8 minutes in the bathroom.
10 minutes getting a snack.
7 minutes checking the TV Guide.
6 minutes telling parents that the teacher never explained the assignment.
10 minutes sitting at the kitchen table waiting for Mom or Dad to do the assignment.
