Too much homework

WHY are vernacular primary school students loaded with loads of homework each day?

 My child returns from school at 2pm, showers, has lunch and  starts doing his  homework.

 The homework stops at midnight and continues at 5am. This is done  to hand over the completed work at 7am.

 Can the Education Ministry  check on this  practice?
 Load students with homework during weekends and  holidays,  but please be considerate about weekday homework.

 If  children have tuition on  weekdays, they have my sympathy.

 A child cannot carry on like this. Please, school administrators and teachers, hear our cries and be considerate.
