Default Children get too much homework?

Is it just me, or does children seem to get massive amounts of home work? I know they don't have jobs, well most of them, but still, Homework should take up a ton of time, correct? I ask this because I've heard a lot of kids come home with massive amounts of homework, only to work on it until late into the night.

What do you think?

This is something i have been thinking about.... My daughter starred 1st grade lat year, and it seems as if her homework load is matching to my college homework load and almost just as hard(literally)... I find myself having to stop and think when helping her with homework and activites about things i should not have to at this age level, i can only imagine it getting harder and more complicated for her. I have asked the teachers about this, and there answers are to keep class and homework competitive for the 21st century, there is a lot to leran out there with new technology, so they challenge the kids at early ages... I dunno, i guess t's a good theory, i just was not prepared for it.
