    So, if Ms. Payne has a boyfriend, then there is no logical reason she tortures kids with tons of homework. Unless, she just enjoys torturing kids with lots of homework. She’s evil!!!

    Ms Payne gives the kids a normal amount of homework it’s just maria sees things differently.

    Now Maria needs an entirely new strategy to reduce her homework assignments. Research may be on her side: “Although the research support for homework is compelling, the case against homework is popular. The End of Homework: How Homework Disrupts Families, Overburdens Children, and Limits Learning by Kralovec and Buell (2000), considered by many to be the first high-profile attack on homework, asserted that homework contributes to a corporate-style, competitive U.S. culture that overvalues work to the detriment of personal and familial well-being.”

    So she had a boyfriend all along. And he is named after a punch card thing.

    Right. The whole thing is seen through Maria’s viewpoint- which is nautrally a tad skewed.

    Why is Maria’s mother standing on Maria’s head?

    She’s not. Look again and you’ll see that Maria is standing NEXT to her mother.

    If she does all of her homework well and fast she will get assigned more difficult homework. If she does it poorly she will assign more homework to help her get better. Moral? She can’t win either way.

    It’s called foreground and background. It’s something artists use to imitate real life, where everything isn’t really flat and all on one plane.

    You forgot to use the sarcasm font, I think. :-)

    Some people just don’t have a sense of perspective.
