She and I have had conversations about the different education options available to us in this country, and how glad we are that different folks are allowed to proceed with their different strokes. So I was grateful that I managed to just say, "oh, okay," and move on with the conversation, rather than spouting off about The Homework Myth by Alfie Kohn, or the other studies and articles that indicate homework is likely of little or no value to most students, let alone kindergartners!
But then I had to come in here and vent, because my husband doesn't understand my dismay (he claims he's not surprised) and I have no other unschooling friends to talk to about this. Is homework now the norm in kindergarten??? Holy cow. I'm so grateful we don't have to be involved in that.
