Re the Oct. 3 article, Parents bemoan the homework woes: Teachers, parents, students need to cease the whining about homework. Let all homework be optional. Motivated students will progress and the unmotivated will regress.
This is the American way. We offer educational opportunity for success to all, but progress and achievement to those who pursue the American dream with hard work. Teachers will have more time to promote the motivated who will lead the country.
