No more homework :-)

This school (Orchard School in Vermont) banned homework. Instead the kids were asked to
play and read a book or be read to. And it worked! Kids did great.
Does not surprise me one bit.

I wish MY schools had done this; I ALWAYS hated homework!

So much of the homework my kids brought home was nothing but "busy-work"--I never saw the point in it.

Play??? Read a book???
