LAUSD has announced that they will be reviewing the homework policy. Superintendent John Deasy has said he wants to hear from parents, so here’s your chance!
Take this survey that will be presented to the Superintendent of Instruction. It’s short, but there are plenty of opportunities to add your unique experiences and opinions.
Between my two daughters (in middle school and high school), they have 17 classes. I spend three hours on the road every day getting the girls to and from school and work, and my oldest daughter is usually up well past my bedtime still doing homework.
I think some homework is helpful, but I can’t possibly keep up with all their assignments. I’m a single parent with a full-time job and I’m also a part-time student myself. I value education, but I also value taking my daughters to the theatre and spending time with friends and family and yes, even just hanging out sometimes, too.
So what’s your homework story?
