This might be one of those occasions where the "back in my day..." line doesn't make much sense.

I remember when I was a student and not receiving much of anything over Thanksgiving break.

Apparently things have changed because Illinois is now said to be on to the top states in the US with homework on Thanksgiving break.

Leading the US with Thanksgiving homework is Oregon, with 71% of students receiving some assignment during the break.

Here's the top 10:

  1. Oregon 71%
  2. New York 64%
  3. New Jersey 62%
  4. Colorado 60%
  5. Arizona 59%
  6. Massachusetts 58%
  7. Tennessee 58%
  8. California 57%
  9. Illinois 55%
  10. Georgia 54%
