Thank you Dr. Hynes and all like you, for all you do to restore love of learning for our children, and joy of teaching to our teachers.
This year we parents make a pledge to end this abuse.
We will not:
Allow tears at the homework table.
Be forced to reteach what students cannot learn because the lessons are age inappropriate.
Allow our children to sit through a year of test prep and many hours of testing used to fire teachers and data mine.
Ask our students to give up their extra curricular activities to learn age inappropriate material they could not absorb in their normal school week.
Allow our children to be unpaid child labor.
No more. NO MORE.
