Parents want their kids to do homework

What in the world?!

Students of P.S. 116 in New York have been told not to do homework, which is literally the #1 thing kids want after ponies, and instead to spend time with their families reading and being together.

In a letter from Principal Jane Hsu, she said:

"The topic of homework has received a lot of attention lately, and the negative effects of homework have been well established. They include: children's frustration and exhaustion, lack of time for other activities and family time and, sadly for many, loss of interest in learning… In fact, you may be surprised to learn that there have been a variety of studies conducted on the effects of homework in the elementary grades and not one of them could provide any evidence that directly links traditional homework practices with current, or even future, academic success."

Well, some parents are suuuuuper annoyed about this and have even threatened to pull their kids from the school. Their argument is that homework teaches kids discipline and helps them work toward something.

Some parents even confessed to giving their kids homework in addition to what the school had previously assigned.

We feel bad for these kids for having to live under such party poopers. Can you imagine the dinner tables? Just mounds of broccoli and lima beans we bet. Super clean bedrooms and no laughing after 7pm on weeknights.

What do U think about this, Perezcious readers?
