A math teacher at Hilliard Memorial Middle School in Ohio has started assigning homework to parents. Her rationale: “It’s stressing the importance of schoolwork, and it’s good for the kids to say they know something that their parents don’t.” According to an article in The Columbus Dispatch, the “assignments ask students to show their parents how to solve the problems. Then, both parent and child work the problems. Parents are not required to complete the assignments and students can use their siblings, neighbors or teachers, but [the teacher] prefers Mom and Dad do the work.” Read the article here.
