Is it true that parents are doing their child's homework?
Original post made by Parent, JLS Middle School, on Nov 7, 2012
Being that middle and high school are such rigorous academics, it's possible that parents are doing their children's homework to offset stress while other students suffer in silence. This is a shame. This is a public school system, not a private school where parents willfully pay for rigor. They should stop teaching to the squeaky wheels who want 5s on AP exams, and give extra homework to those who want to score 5 on AP exams, while keeping the workload lower for those who take AP classes to learn.
