I’ve been getting heartbreaking email from students, mostly highschoolers, about the role of homework in their lives. Today, I received a refrigerator magnet poem from Becca, a 17-year-old eleventh grader from Bainbridge Island, Washington:
I am not motivated in school
make good grades
accomplish, study, test
my love is imagination
One thought on “Homework as Muse”
Kids spend a FULL day at school. Give them (and their parents) a break.
