    HOMEWORK? HOMESCHOOL INSTEAD A teacher opines on what makes a good homework assignment:

    The best homework assignments are those that can be done only at home — for example, reading aloud with family members and reporting back at school on what everyone liked best and why. Or a writing assignment that calls for interviewing relatives and neighbors to talks about important people in their lives. Or a science assignment that calls for experiments in the kitchen or the bathtub. Homes have resources that classrooms don’t.

    And tell me again, please, why the NEA says “…home schooling programs cannot provide the student with a comprehensive education experience.”

    My daughter just turned 7. She reads, retains, and discusses her material better than most 14 year olds. Not only does homeschooling work, it excels.
