Poll: Should teachers give holiday homework?

Winter recess begins on December 24th. Some students will head home with a bookbag full of holiday homework, while others will have a lighter load.

In this week's poll, we'd like to know how you feel about teachers assigning homework over the holiday break. Is it important to keep the momentum of the learning process moving during that downtime? Or, do kids deserve a break?

Vote now to let us know how you feel about holiday homework. Kids and teachers are welcome to vote too! Let's hear your reasons, for and against.
