A recent study found that kids in the U.S. ages 8-13 receive up to 3 times the recommended amount of homework; this issue disproportionately affects low income kids and kids with parents who speak little or no English. The Academe System lightens the homework load for kids and families. Its zippered homework folder provides a home workspace for kids, keeps assignments from getting rumpled and lost, and stores a writing utensil within reach. With the assignment type, due date, and pencil holder visible from the outside of the folder, teachers can make sure kids have what they need and parents can keep track of their kids’ assignments. Finally, the system provides a clear, kid-friendly layout for daily homework assignments that will reduce confusion. As a result, families can spend less time on homework and more quality time together.
