Homework Policy - *facepalm*

A teacher at my school sent this out today, it is SOOOOOO true. I bet even the college folks will agree with a lot of it!

Our School's Homework Policy

Here is an explanation of our school's homework policy:

Students should not spend more than 90 minutes per night. This time should be budgeted in the following manner:

15 minutes looking for assignment
11 minutes calling a friend for the assignment
23 minutes explaining why the teacher is mean and just does not like children
8 minutes in the bathroom
10 minutes getting a snack
7 minutes checking the TV Guide
6 minutes telling parents that the teacher never explained the assignment
10 minutes sitting at the kitchen table waiting for Mom or Dad to do the assignment


These are given the night before they are due. This explains the name long term. It is a long term commitment to time that begins at 9:30PM and ends at 11:50PM -- or later.

It is important that the whole family is involved in the project. It is imperative that at least one family member races to Walmart/KMart for posterboard, and that at least one family member ends up in tears.
Note: This may not necessarily have to be the student.

One parent needs to stay up and complete the project. The other parent needs to call the school and leave a message that the student is out sick.

It is not necessary to have the student's name on the assignment.
