What role does homework play in the school day?

Traditional schools assign homework so that students can review the concepts taught during the school day. However, the reality is that students didn’t really learn the concepts during the school day because of large class sizes, inadequate instructional methods, and students being inappropriately placed, so homework becomes a time-consuming and stressful end to an already overly busy day. At Mission Academy, we don’t assign homework. After your family has been apart all day, we think the most important work to do at home is to spend time with your family! So instead of homework, read with your child, work on service projects, play sports, or do Bible study!
