Sasha Reynolds, the mother of a 7-year-old and a 5-year old, recently wrote me to tell me what she’s doing in her children’s school in Scotland:
I have finally approached the school my children attend with regard to the homework issues as I am on the Parent Council. I have found to my pleasant surprise as soon as I mentioned my home work concerns a number of parents agreed with me. It seems many parents are feeling the same but perhaps feel that its their fault there are homework problems and so accept the situation and don’t talk about it to others. The up shot is there is going to be a working group of staff and parents meeting to review the homework.
