Atlantic writer Karl Taro Greenfeld noticed his daughter was staying up into the wee hours of the night doing homework, so for a week he too did her homework. His article inspired by the week was titled "My Daughter's Homework is Killing Me" and it went viral. But teachers say if not for homework, they'd never get through everything they need to teach. Is there such a think as too much homework?

Guests
