Moms (and Dads) on a Mission–More from Niagara Falls, Canada

A few weeks ago, I wrote about Dale O’Dair, a dad from Niagara Falls who talked to the school about his first-grade daughter’s homework load (several hours a week). The very next day, the school wrote a note to all of the parents stating that homework booklets would be abolished.

We have now spoken with most of the parents in the class and there was a lot of fighting and crying as a result of the homework which we have ended.

The silent majority was real and are grateful that I made a stand for the families. Most were having enough trouble with the spelling test alone, five words a week, and we will see if that can be ended as well.

  1. Cheers Dale! Thank you for your VOICE. I have been a ‘voice’ for our silent majority here in Marin County, CA and have made some headway. Slowly encouraging more of the ‘suffering silent’ to find their voice and their values.
    Sending support and respect from California!
