Working From Home On The Range
August XXVIth, MMXVI
Hon. Dave Eggen, B. Ed., MLA, Minister of Education, New Democratic, Edmonton-Calder
I want to congratulate radio host Mrs. Danielle Smith-Moretta on doing her "homework" ahead of time on that very important topic: HOMEWORK! Its a constant struggle as students return to class for the fall & thus on Danny's radio show she had an expert on yesterday explaining the situation. Whereas sometimes there isn't enough homework being sent home, & sometimes it can serve to become all-consuming at home: thus destroying a student(s) home life & making things harder for their family too. A balance must be struck in terms of amounts of homework given & whether the student(s) should get homework breaks that could in fact let them participate to a greater extent in family activities! A mother of canine children, Danny has to choose like any other parent which school setting is best for them!
An Editor's Note: Danny agrees with me vociferously that her husband David is more trouble than their dogs. Just like most men, am I right ladies?!
