For all you parents out there , I have a question. My youngest is in 6th grade, and this year and last the teachers subscribe to a program of almost no homework. I have an issue with that, and have expressed it and have gotten no where. Anyone else with kids of this age run into this and this theory of education? Hey, I admit not having to argue and battle about homework is great, but to me it seems much more wrong. I'll deal with the crap to help my kids, and I don't need to be their best friend. I'd much rather be the person that helps them be better in life than a best friend who lets things slide, and to me that is where the no homework idea is. I thought that is why these people get paid to teach, but in the current enviorment, you become the bad person and to me your kids may sufffer when you question this crap. Thanks for any input. Bob If I have to I will go to Kahn academy and like sites to help my kids, but I think he should be geting all this without me having to do that.
