That's just stupid, what are they going to charge? Parenting abuse? I doubt there's an law that required students to do their homework, what happened to freedom of speech

How stupid, I hate homework with a passion but I do it all in class. People go to court for the dumbest things.

wtf. a court can't do that...

homeworks are a private matter. if the students fail, it is everyone's fault, including the teachers..
students go to school to learn(and socialize--believe it or not, socializing is an important part of a healthy life)

don't people even remember WHY homeworks were 'invented'??
it was because of long vacations when some grown students would go back home to help with the farming during the agricultural season. back then, farming was an all day job.. you couldn't really work on the farm, then leave for school.. especially when your farm was atleast 10miles away(no automobile for the common man yet..)
[atleast that's what i learned..somewhere..]

a grade does not measure what a student is capable of..
a homework in today's terms is suppose to help raise the grades of the students..
raising a grade won't help them get any smarter..
i say it's at times the teacher's faults for not knowing how to teach...

i had a computer teacher who didn't teach us shit..
we spent most of our class hours learning via a program, the rest were spent on him lecturing us on WHAT MIGHT BE on the test..

wow, thats the stupidest thing i've ever heard. homework is just homework, they can't send someone to court because their kid is lazy. they don't even have a reasonable explanation for doing that...if a person's kid doesn't do their homework, it doesn't mean they're a bad parent.

anyways, this reminded me of something i read a long time ago about a school that was giving out detentions to parents. really dumb, isn't it?

thats really stupid why cant they just give them detetion or study hall atleast something instead of court.....our teacher gives homework but he says that we dont have to do it but it would be a good thing cause majority of the hw questions will be on the test/quizzes. oh well i didnt know some school were like that...

At Houston's North Shore Middle School, the parents of students who habitually fail to complete their homework and miss a mandatory afterschool programme are being summoned to court, school officials said on Thursday.



*coughs*

here it's the other way around. students don't go to class, don't do homework, fail the tests, and parents keep summoning the school to court and try to get their kids to pass in the end of the school year.
