School homework-what is your opinion as student, parent and teacher
As a student school homework could have been a nuisance or something to tackle quickly to be able to move on to an interesting activity. As a parent and as a teacher, though, the perspective on school homework are entirely different. Enjoy a freewheeling discussion on the varied perceptions and approach towards school homework.
The main takeaway from school classes everyday used to be homework for the next day. As students we would have taken it in a mixed way. Sometimes we would have disliked it and thought it as a burden spoiling our play time or some other good enjoyment. But sometimes we would have taken help of home work just to escape from doing some work at home, or not to show our face to strangers.
We would be eager to finish homework given by our favourite teacher, but curse in our mind those given by some others (mostly the maths teacher). If we are going for an outing, we would finish the homework as early as possible and get ready for the outing. So it was a mixed bag then.
Many of us have since become parents, and grandparents too. Some are/were teachers too. What is your view and experience in this as a student, as parent and as teacher?
