A teacher in the US has decided not to give her students any homework this school year and parents and kids are STOKED.
Brenda Young, a second grade teacher, has decided to work with the theory that homework doesn’t actually improve students performance. In a letter sent home to parents the teacher said that parents should use the extra free time students will be given to spend together, having dinner together, going outside to play, working on hobbies, etc.
Some people disagree with this because it might no properly prepare kids for heavy homework loads in the future, but some think it’s exactly the break that the kids need.
What are your thoughts? Homework or no homework?
