I don’t know what the deal is with these schools now a days. But what I do know is, I DON’T LIKE IT!
What the hey is up with my son’s school not handing out homework? They assign the children homework, however, they allow them to finish it up at school. This is totally unexceptionable to me. Homework is for home, while school work is for school.
How the hell else are children supposed to learn the value of being self reliant, responsibility, paying attention while in class and doing the best they can do when they aren’t given homework.
Oh! And the other trend is that the children in my son’s district do not bring homework home over the weekend. WoW! This sounds like a complete stash of crap if you ask me.
Too bad for my son’s teacher. I am a very involved parent and she is not going to enjoy having me around. Not only do I want him bringing home his books over the weekend, he’s going to be doing some work over the weekend as well… and if she doesn’t allow him to bring them home, cool. I want the next to the best thing. She needs to spell out what he’s covering right now and what he will be covering for the following weeks so I can home school him… that way I WILL know that he’s getting the lesson.
This is how I was brought up (that I had to do 3 times as more work to be seen as equal to my white counterparts) and I don’t see how such has changed for minority children today.
>>> No wonder American children are failing and falling behind other nations when it comes to graduating and succeeding in life, they aren’t expected to do homework. The teachers are simply teaching the children how to pass the grade level exams… screw being the best you can be and being encouraged to go beyond what the teacher’s lesson plan dictates…
