Homework provides a connection between home and school. As parents you have the opportunity to become involved in your child's education by overseeing what activities and experiences are occurring in the classroom. It offers insights into the difficulties and strengths experienced by your child and provides a specific basis for discussions with the teacher. It offers the chance to praise and support your child in a positive manner.
Homework is also a bridge that joins schools and parents. From the school’s perspective there is the opportunity to monitor your child's independent progress. For you as parents there is the potential to gain a greater appreciation of education and to express positive attitudes towards your children’s achievement.
