    Parents Doing Homework
    By 4th grade teacher

    Clip to ScrapBook
    I work at a private school and this is a problem I run into all the time. You should see some the research papers my "students" completed. They were written in language that would be at least high school level and probably beyond. Ridiculous. I also get math homework in different handwriting. Personally, I sometimes write somthing like "All work is to be done in your own handwriting" at the top and take 10% off the total grade. Also, when we do large projects some of the points on the rubric can be earned for doing fourth grade work. If it is obvious that it is not work that was completed by the student, they cannot earn those points. Oddly, I've never had one parent argue with me and claim that the student had really done the work. I guess they just knew they were caught.
