Brandy Young, a second-grade teacher at Godley Elementary School in Texas, passed out a letter at the the start of the school year to explain her homework policy to her class and their parents.
Parent Samantha Gallagher shared the letter on her Facebook and it went viral, with more than 70,000 shares. The picture was captioned “Brooke is loving her new teacher already”.
Comments on Samantha’s FB post praised the teacher:
” Finally more teachers are catching on to this! Our school has been like this for years, it’s sooo much better!”
“I like this teacher. She has her head on right. I can understand why your post has so many shares.”
I do believe that kids are required to do too much homework at home and should be focusing on being kids and playing while they are still young. I think reading is enough.
Does your child have to do homework?
