    As I have written in another post, the movie wrongly implies that a large fraction of American high school students are spending an excessive amount of time on homework. Reading a recent article

    http://www.latimes.com/news/local/la-me-homework-20110627,0,2416846,full.story
    L.A. Unified's new homework policy gives students a break
    By Howard Blume, Los Angeles Times
    June 27, 2011

    is a reminder that for many students and their families, doing homework is simply not a priority.

    Interesting article and sorry I did not see "Superman" yet. When I taught math, one student did the homework and the others copied it. I got frustrated and starting making them come to the board and answer the (given) homework and they started doing it. I know - I know - I am a horrible teacher - but they learned it.

    "They learned it" -- you don't sound like a bad teacher to me.
