[Susan notes: The letter author signs herself A parent and teacher ready for a positive change!! Her idea is terrific and should become a national campaign: Ban the Bubble Week.]
To the editor
I have a bold proposition for our community. What if our schools , public and private, agreed to assign no homework and "ban the bubble" for one week? When I say "ban the bubble" I mean not assign any fill in the bubble worksheets or tests in class or at home. What would happen? Would learning stop? During and after the week, teachers, parents and students would honestly reflect on how it felt and what happened. Would Ross Valley do it? Could Ross Valley do it? One week. 5 days. That's all.
