The few school systems I am familiar with provide estimates of average homework time. So if parents are concerned that homework is taking too much or too little time, there are at least rough benchmarks to go by. If junior is significantly exceeding the average estimated times, there may be a learning/study issue to deal with................or something more mundane.
