Edit: To home work or not to?

Many of the kids at Bryan Elementary School in Coeur d’Alene probably feel like they got something of a summer vacation extension.

You know, through the whole 2016-17 school year.

Bryan put homework lovers on notice that the same ‘ol, same ‘ol just might never be the same. Principal Kristin Gorringe and Bryan teachers, after extensive research, decided that homework shouldn’t automatically be built into the curriculum. Teachers are now empowered to decide whether their classrooms will be given homework or not for the entire year.

This dream-come-true for many students is ripe for parental criticism. More here.

Question: Did you do much home work back in the day?
