Why do teachers give homework assignments over the breaks? It’s not like they give little projects to keep the students engaged, they always seem to give big time consuming projects during the vacation times and it’s getting a little ridiculous!
I’ve been dealing with this issue now for the past 15 years and it’s starting to get to me.
The kids have a break during Christmas, President’s week, Easter/Passover week and then summer vacation. This gives parents, like me, very limited time to go away. I can only get away when my son is off.
So I take advantage of it and often book vacations with my husband to go somewhere different. I want this time to bond with my family not to sit around and do homework!
Now, what I don’t understand is, are the teachers working the entire vacation? It seems that they want the kids to work the entire time. I looked at my son’s homework and I couldn’t believe it was for a week’s worth of work. It was a crazy amount of work that they wanted him to accomplish in a week.
