Why wasn't this a thing when I was a kid?!
A proposal is on the table in the West Chester School District that would ban teachers from assigning homework on weekends and over holiday breaks like Christmas and Thanksgiving.
District Superintendent Jim Scanlon sent a letter this week outlining the proposed new policy stating:
"We are very aware of the impact the amount of homework our students receive can have on them and their families, and we wanted to work to address the need for balance in our students’ lives, while not comprising student achievement."
The policy goes in front of the school board for final approval on May 24th. I know a lot of students (and parents) have their fingers crossed this goes thru.
