Teachers and administrators at P.S. 116 had a novel idea, abolish homework. Instead of homework, the school urged kids to read books and spend time with their family. According to DNAinfo, the school's principal, Jane Hsu, sent a letter to parents explaining the change and the schools reason for it.
In the letter, she said that homework has not been positive for students, claiming that "children’s frustration and exhaustion, lack of time for other activities and family time" has created a "loss of interest in learning".
While students may be rejoicing at this news their parents were not as enthusiastic. Some parents are even considering pulling their kids from the school.
