Teacher's new homework policy goes viral

FORT WORTH, TX (WTXF) One Texas mother's Facebook post about a teacher's new homework policy is quickly going viral.

According to the note sent by the teacher, homework will only consist of work that the student did not finish during the school day and there will be no formally assigned homework. The teacher goes on to say that research has been unable to prove that homework improves student performance.

The note is signed by Mrs. Brandy Young.

Samantha captioned the photo with "Brooke is loving her new teacher already!" As of this writing, the post has been shared over 62,000 times.
