US students study a lot more than students in Japan and Germany? I doubt it.

I agree! I would think the U.S. would be at the bottom of that list unless you include studying laptops and Smartphones.

Tink Bloomberg seems to be one of the sites (sigh) now excluding old computers so I cannot open it.

However, ;) from past experience I am guessing that if YOU & ROOSTER don't believe the stats, I prolly don't neither! :)

@Virginia : Maybe this one will open for you. Quite the difference in stats!

Rooster, yes! I can often open blogs because they are typically simpler...and this article was amazing. Japan, only 3.8 hours of homework per week, and they are #2 in Best Education System, right after S. Korea...

Maybe you recall Rathkeale, she was on both Ask and Blurt!t? Anyway...she is a retired educator in Canada with STRONG DEFINITIVE good sense/advice, and on Qu0ra she told us that she NEVER gave homework. And I would bet my hat-and-all that she turned out excellent students...

@Virginia : Yes, I do remember her quite well. Very nice and intelligent lady. I bet she did turn out some of the best students that Canada has!
