National PTA Homework Petition

There is a petition going around asking the National PTA to endorse homework guidelines at its coming annual meeting. I've read the petition. I endorse it and suggest you endorse it as well. I also think it is missing two very important recommendations. These are that there be time boundaries on homework and that parents are the final decision-makers for all matters in their homes. Certainly, the organizers of this movement have done a great job and should receive everyone's full support. It is a great first step. Still, let's not overlook those two, extremely important pieces for homework reform.
