    Lower Merion schools consider new homework policy

    Lower Merion School District’s homework policy hasn’t changed since 1988. While that doesn’t mean teachers haven’t adjusted to the times, parents and school officials think it may be time for some revisions.

    A new, preliminary policy could be ready in just a few months, the Main Line Times reports. Three main criteria will be evaluated:

    amount and type of homework
    teachers’ understanding of modern homework
    a system to monitor teachers’ adherence to policies

    The district may develop a committee to assist with the process.

    Feed the Feed: What do you think is the best approach to assigning homework?
