Education Rethink @edrethink
I believe that homework should be optional. I respect the desires of parents and students to have additional help if they really want it. However, time at home belongs to the family. I don't believe it's my job to intrude on that time. I think it should be an extracurricular activity, not unlike sports or church or clubs. All of those are great things that lead to learning, but they shouldn't be forced on families that don't wish to participate in them.
