Homework plea;Letter

12th March 1999 at 00:00
I AM writing to offer my opinion about the homework policy. I don't think it is a very good idea.

If we had homework every day, we wouldn't get a chance to do anything else. It's also hard work for the teacher who would have to plan and explain to us the homework and mark it the next day.

I think we should have two or three short pieces of homework at the weekend.
