No Homework Policy Comes To Idaho School
Most Twin Falls kids have already started school and the rest will be starting in just a few days and I'm willing to bet that all of them wish this story applied to them. There is an Idaho school that has decided to not give out homework this year!
Homedale Elementary has adopted the wildly favored (especially by kids) no homework policy. This doesn't mean the kids won't do any work at home. The idea is that the kids will receive assignments at school and whatever they don't finish in class will then need to be done at home.
Here's another kicker for the Twin Falls kids wishing they lived there instead - a few years ago the school started a 4 day school week. That means they get a longer weekend every week and they don't have homework. Dang, now I'm jealous too!
