According to the post-gazette.com, a new homework policy in West Allegheny, Pennsylvania sets limits for the maximum amount of time students should spend on homework each night. The guidelines also state that test preparation counts as homework and a student shouldn’t have more than two tests on the same day. If a student consistently spends 50 percent more than the recommended time on homework, teachers must review that student’s skill level, study habits, and courseload.
One thought on “West Allegheny, Pennsylvania, School District Implements Homework Policy Setting Maximum Time Limits”
The policy is so ridiculous. The teachers want more money, more benefits, and less time teaching so how this just does not make sense. I guess I didn’t have enough homework when I went to school. The policy is posted all over the district website and if the teachers don’t wish to teach the children to the best of their ability between school hours they really should not expect a parent who has also been at work all day to take hours to help with homework which more times than not was not properly explained. If you want to teach do it, if you don’t find another profession and get stay away from my child. My child has a life after school hours as I do and we should not have to give up our time to do homework !!
