I have the basic philosophy that I just will not as a teacher assign a lot of homework. Some, but not much, unless it's some kind of creative project. I don't want to overburden children and families with what I personally feel is a lot of busy work. I guess as a parent I know both sides of the story. What about elem. teachers on here? Is that plausible to give minimal homework? Is it frowned upon? I would, but minimal. My dad was telling me when he went to Catholic school they gave the students homework time during the end of the day, if they didn't finish it, then they had to bring it home, which I think is a great idea.
