We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
I recently read that Asian-American children average 4 hours of homework/night, Caucasians 2hrs/night, Hispanics 1hr/night, and African-americans 30 min/night.
Modify this understanding with studies which show that homework isn't all that useful anyway. True. A fair caution.
But still, even at minimal usefulness, what outcomes would you predict for those four groups on that basis alone, and including no information about genetics, epigenetics, culture, presence of fathers, attitude, racism (structural or actual), quality of schools, books in the home, dangerousness of neighborhoods, or any of the other usual suspects?
