Look. Teachers do an amazing job. I wouldn't last five seconds in a classroom full of other people's children, and I don't want to fuel the whole 'them and us' mentality that seems to develop between teachers and parents. That helps no-one.
A teacher in Texas has basically won the hearts of parents everywhere by banning homework.
I think I love her.
One of the parents of a child in teacher Brandy Young's class shared a picture on Facebook of a letter which Ms Young sent home at the start of the school year.
"After much research this summer, I am trying something new,' the letter reads. Homework will only consist of work that your student did not finish during the school day. There will be no formally assigned homework this year."
"Research has been unable to prove that homework improves student performance. I ask that you spend your evenings doing things that are proven to correlate with student success. Eat dinner as a family, read together, play outside, and get your child to bed early."
Now I understand the case for giving kids homework and I get that banning it in favour of family time only really 'works' for those kids whose families do things like reading together or having a family meal – and that's not every child.
But even if you see the value of setting homework for children - it teaches them how to work independently and can consolidate what's learned in the classroom setting - I just love that a teacher is willing to try something new and keep an open mind about the results.
One of the things that frustrates me as a parent is the sense that school life is a treadmill and my kids just plod the same path year after year. Things rarely seem to change, be that the school dinner menu or the topic and homework plans from one year group to the next.
So, yes, I wholeheartedly welcome the idea of abolishing homework in favour of something that might better impact on a child's overall wellbeing and academic progress.
But what's your view? How would you feel if your child's teacher sent home a note like this at the start of the school year?
