    Hi Elisha!

    Helping parents understand via a handout / research / etc. can be helpful. Also, I wonder if maybe it isn’t swinging from homework every night to no homework ever, but maybe changing what math homework looks like/sounds like? 

    Depending on the grade level, homework can be helpful if it is concepts students have already engaged with previously and if it isn’t a huge amount. Purposeful practice is important, so I guess the question becomes is how can we make whatever we might assign for outside of class to be intentional and “DOABLE” for all students?
