Merrimack School District

There is a growing debate in New Hampshire and nationally about the value of homework, and educators are responding. Merrimack School District implemented a new homework protocol at the beginning of this school year.

Teachers can still assign practice homework, but it will no longer count as a graded assignment. Morning Edition Host Rick Ganley spoke with Mark McLaughlin, assistant superintendent for Merrimack, about the new protocol and what it means for teachers and students.
