Teacher absolutely nails it with new homework policy

The war against homework has begun.

A massive pile of homework after a long day at school is enough to make any kid go insane. Even the best students will half-ass their way through their take-home work. One teacher has had enough.
The note, which was originally posted to Facebook and reposted to Reddit, describes a new homework policy that will easily make this teacher every students' favorite.

After much research this summer, I am trying something new. Homework will only consist of work that your student did not finish during the school day. There will be no formally assigned homework this year.

Research had been unable to prove that homework improves student performance, Rather, I ask that you spend your evenings doing things that are proven to correlate with student success. Eating dinner as a family, read together, play outside, and get your child to bed early. 

We're sure all of the kids in this class are on board with all of this, except maybe for the going to bed early part. 

Of course, this isn't the first teacher to do away with homework; entire schools in Massachusetts have adopted a "No Homework" policy.
