Whose Responsibility is it Anyway?

teacher Who is responsible for what when it comes to your child’s homework? Does the parent carry any burden, the teacher, or is it the student who needs to bear the brunt? Hear from a veteran school teacher on his views.

Homework

For years I never gave homework for the following reasons. I felt children spent enough time in school, they needed time to be children and enjoy their very short childhood. When children did not do their homework it caused constant (and unnecessary) conflicts between parents and children. The disagreements about how much homework, what kind, appropriateness, and general confusion about the lessons caused serious communication and rapport problems between parents and teachers. If the homework was too easy it was mere busy work. If it was too hard it caused frustration, failure, and contributed to poor self-esteem; mainly to those who could not afford any more attacks on their weak self-images.
