To me this seems a little ridiculous but wondering what you ladies think
My dd is in the 6th grade (middle school in our school district). She as an adgenda (notbook that she writes all her assignments in) Her teachers insist in be signed every night ( no this is not new has been going on since the start of the school year). I feel that by middle school you are a young adult and know enough to get your home work done and don't need your parents hovering over you making sure you do your work and don't need them signing saying that you showed them what all homework you have. I tried to speak to the teacher about it but they bascially told me I should just do it because the other parents do. Anyway just so that it gets done I sign for a week a head. Well I guess the teacher just figured that out and crossed it out and told dd that I have to resign and that I'm not allowed to do it that way that I MUST SIGN EACH DAY AND ONLY FOR THAT DAY NOT AHEAD. Guess she was really upset that I wasn't looking each night.
So my question is does this seem ridiculous to anyone eles?
Let me add I trust my dd to get her homework done she knows school is important and that homework is part of school. She does all her work and studies hard. She is on Merrit Roll and often turns projects in before they are due, so I'm not worried about her saying she has no homework because she doesn't want to do it.
ETA: Going to add that I am not refusing to sign and that I will go back to doing it every night. I only signed for a week ahead for one or two weeks teacher just had her little fit about it friday. I was doing it save dd frustration and keep her for catching backlash if I forgot. I do know what homework she has becase I ask and see her doing it. I am going to go back to signing it each night , but I still think it's silly but will do it for my dd. For thoes of you that are calling me lazy never once did I say I refuse or will refuse to sign it so I am not being lazy just frustrated. I disagree with the policy and it's not a school wide one just one that dd's team of 6th grade teachers has (there are two) Also only one of her teachers had an issue with me doing it ahead.
For thoes that think that I'm teaching my daughter to cheat but signing ahead by a week, aren't I also teaching her that it's okay to do something just because everyone eles is doing so instead of thinking for herself?
ETA again: I don't think it's that hard to do or anything just silly I will be doing so as we finish out the year and hope that we don't have to in 7th grade. If we do then I will bite my toung and do so but I will still find it silly.
