Kingston Homework Policy

This past December, the Kingston, New York Board of Education issued a homework policy. I thought the policy had significant flaws and communicated with the newspaper reporter who had written about this policy, with the superintendent and with the school board itself. They went back to the drawing boards and came up with a new homework policy. I'm personally impressed with the change. Here are links to the two policies.

Initial Policy
Revised Policy

Let me know what you think.
