A 10-year-old boy stowed away on a train and ran away from home in China – because he had too much homework.
He said he could not cope with the amount of homework he was expected to complete during the one month winter holiday.
Xu said: “Each of us has to finish two thick books of homework. Take the mathematics homework as an example, it has 100 pages with all kinds of questions.”
