Texas Teacher’s No-Homework Policy Goes Viral: Photo


A Texas teacher’s no-homework policy has gone viral and has been widely praised after she implemented it, in part, to allow her students to spend more quality time with their families.

Brandy Young’s letter to parents has been shared on Facebook more than 68,000 since mom Samantha Gallagher posted it last week, USA Today reports.

“After much research this summer, I am trying something new. Homework will only consist of work that your student did not finish during the school day. There will be no formally assigned homework this year,” the second-grade teacher wrote.

“Research has been unable to prove that homework improves student performance,” she added. “Rather, I ask that you spend your evenings doing things that are proven to correlate with student success. Eat dinner as a family, read together, play outside, and get your child to bed early.
