Dear fellow teachers,
Do you enjoy that you have to spend unpaid overtime grading and lesson planning? Time that takes away from your family, your friends, your overall quality of life?
Students spend all day at school. ALL DAY LONG. Then you send them home with homework. Do you like the work you have to bring home? I don’t. So I will NEVER send it home. Students spend enough time in the day working on the various subjects. Let them have time to regroup, to play, to hangout with their families, God forbid to play on the electronics that are forbidden or discouraged at school when they get home. It is a disservice to families to send home homework.
If I never had to bring home work again, that would be awesome. In the mean time, I won’t do it to my students and I pray you consider not doing it to yours.
