Clip to ScrapBook #16

In an ideal world, I would love to have projects that students complete at home. However, if my students have parents that cannot even initial a reading log once a week, then I doubt they would be the type of parents to help out on projects and/or buy supplies.
Honestly, reading and physical activity are the only homework I ever give. If they fall behind on something I'll let them complete it during recess or lunch.
In my opinion, yes the parents SHOULD be doing this at home, but the fact is they will not. The student cannot help having parents who don't care. I'm not going to lower their grade for having bad or out of touch parents.
