    I was wondering if there is any school in the area that does not assign homework. I think our children do enough at school while they are there. Our family has no time to share when they come home and this puts too much pressure on our family. Please let me know.

    We are in Rowan County. I am wanting to find a school that doesn’t require homework. We get home at 6pm most nights. After dinner and baths and homework, we have no family time at all and I definitely have NO time for me. Required homework puts to much pressure and single parents. And why do kids have to come home and do school work after being at school all day? I don’t want to come home and work after being at work all. It just makes no logical sense to me. Please let me know of any schools not requiring homework.
