Best Parents Ever Do Away With Homework
Posted on Nov 18, 2009
A Canadian couple have negotiated something called a Differentiated Homework Plan with their children’s school after learning that there is no guarantee that after-school toil does a lick of good. As a result, young Spencer and Brittany Milley of Calgary will not be judged on anything but their in-class performance.
On the downside, the kids had to agree to “come to class prepared” and “practice musical instruments at home.”
Unfortunately, Jay Milley made it to 18 before his parents and school saw the light.
The Guardian has the business here and you’ll find what appears to be the actual agreement below. —PZS
