I have always wondered if this was the case. But this shows that it is true. I mean getting stuck in a building for eight hours at a time should count for something. Atleast in college you generally only take 2-3 classes at a time with a 15 minute break between each one. However where home work does seem to help is with standardized testing and with SOLS and the new Common Core system I doubt that home work will be going away.
