"But Dr Hazlewood told us that it [homework] is a waste of time. Of course, he knows more than me but I am very worried about it." (emphasis mine)
This struck me as a pretty good indicator that the old system isn't very good at teaching independent thinking! :LOL The "expert" must know what's best for her and her child, right? Of course, in this case, I'm on the side of the "expert", but I thought it was interesting.
I hope this program is a raging success and spreads rapidly!
