You're not alone. We've had this problem for years. It started 'way back (this is
on a reservation) when kids were attending day schools and still living in wikiups with
no electricity; up until about 20-25 years ago, most families still had no electricity
or indoor plumbing. Homework was out of the question. It's just always been a real
struggle to get kids to do it, and many teachers just gave up.
We just instituted a policy at our HS where each department has to designate which
classes are basic, intermediate, and advanced, and homework will be assigned a certain
number of minutes per week. Students will see these designations in the registration
catalog and can plan accordingly.
