When I was a kid, we cut school all the time and spent the day at a friend's home while her mom wasRead More at work. We did this for a whole school year. We never got caught by the parent. We just finally wore out our welcome because my friend got a boyfriend and wanted to be alone with him. We were 13 and 14 years old. How can you combat that?

It would have been helpful to include the address for James Madison School in the notice. Yeah, IRead More can look it up online but those of us from out of town would have appreciated the location. I plan to attend, of course. Looks like a good one.

More isn't necessarily better. The sheer volume of homework does not substitute for a greatRead More teacher, which seem to be in short supply today. Also, the way the school day is utilized is very archaic and not conducive to learning. Classes should be conducted in a more collegiate manner, say on a Monday-Wednesday or Tuesday-Thursday schedule for two-hour periods rather than the current 45 minute period five days per week which doesn't allow for a good exchange of information from teacher to student.

This is one of the reasons we will be home schooling. More is sometimes just more.

An unfair assessment; the father has the responsibilities of an adult bouncing through his head onRead More top of doing the homework, whereas the kid only has school and homework. What's the alternative, give the kids no homework? Where does the reinforcement come from, then? The kids are supposed to be learning, not ingesting just enough to barely pass a test. Less social media, more learning.
