Parents were appalled to see the article in the Education Week pamphlet about homework.
We do not want to see homework in our home, unless the child has been absent or is studying for exams.
After our children have been in school all day, and parents have been at work all day, the last thing we want to do is spend our precious time with our family doing homework.
The students are involved learning other activities such as music, art, dancing, sports etc.
Parents, as well, are involved in other activities. We do not want our children — your students — in the shower at 2 a.m. and then catch a bus at 7 and 8 a.m.
They need their rest.
Parents need their rest.
Educators, wake up! Or didn’t you get enough rest?
