I saw this Michael Moore tidbit in my newsfeed and it's made me curious how parents feel about homework? Shorter school hours? Shorter school years?
My DH is completely against homework and has said he won't force our kids to do it. I hope this doesn't hurt them at school. The principal at our DS's school told us that homework isn't compulsory so I'm hoping he won't be in trouble if he doesn't do it (of course if he wants to do homework, we will encourage and help him, but DH is adamant that home time is for playing, doing sport or other extra curricular, or for spending time with family).
