Yeah, I've brought this up in the thread about Mr. Fink. I can understand Mr. Ratburn giving out extra homework, but in my opinion the homework is way too advanced. Even when comparing it to classical education where reading and history assignments are more advanced than basic public school curriculum. Think of Mr. Pryce-Jones teaching Latin in 3rd grade. Classical education is really like that, where some grades spend a lot of time studying Greek and Roman history and literature, but I'm pretty sure classical education math levels are the same difficulty as public school education.

The lesson I didn't like about "Arthur and the Real Mr. Ratburn" is that learning how to organize isn't always enough for successfully completing your homework. Sometimes the teacher or the textbook isn't clear, and odds are no two students have the same learning style.
