Really. Teachers, let's give these poor kids a break. Do they really need to do another worksheet, another cut and paste ("where'd you guys put all the glue sticks!?"), another something goofy?
I used to be a teacher, I'm not saying all homework is bad, but really, every night!? Poor Zoe even has it on Fridays. Give me a break! I love a good book report or science inquiry project but mindless worksheets tick me off.
I think our kids have too much sit down time at school as it is, I want them to run around and scream* and jump and play and BE KIDS when they get home, not sit down some more!
