A Texas teacher implements "NO HOMEWORK POLICY." The 27-year-old teacher says children do not need 'more work at home' since they have been doing a lot of work in school.
For four years, this has been the rule of the Texas teacher named Courtney White. She teaches English in a high school in Texas.
Her "No Homework Policy," garnered attention on the Internet when she posted a video on TikTok with the caption, "Students do enough work at school, they don't need more at home!"

The viral video
As of writing the Texas teacher's viral TikTok video already has 1.6 million views.
On TikTok, Courtney has been posting a lot of funny and interesting videos about being a teacher. She also shared her experiences as an educator during the coronavirus pandemic.
The viral video was abrupt, and she was only lip-synching a song. However, her caption made all the difference for some of the viewers.
The "No Homework Policy"
When the 27-year-old teacher shared the video, she did not expect that it will be blowing up just like that.
In an interview with TODAY, Courtney explained why she chose not to give an assignment to her students. She said, "There's no proof that homework is going to make them better students in my class. I respect their time outside of class.
For the Texas teacher, her students' hard work within a day is enough. She also thinks that because some of her students have jobs and other responsibilities, they no longer have time to do the homework.
The netizens' reactions
After seeing the Texas teacher's video, some students jokingly commented about sharing the video with their teachers. One TikTok user said, "How can I send this to my teachers, but they can't see I send it?"
Most of the students who commented either wanted to move to the Texas teacher's school or fancy to have her as their teacher. Some netizens said, "Lemme say bye to my school. I'll be back." and "So how can I transfer to (the) school where you are teaching at?"
Some netizens shared their thoughts on why they also do not think of assignments as effective. One student said, "I spend 8 hours at school, 2 hours each day at clubs then go home and do homework for 4-6 hours. I work weekends too."
However, some asked why she thinks that way, "Isn't a homework practice to make sure they're learning?"
Those who agreed with the Texas teacher's "No Homework Policy," shared they have the same policy in their school.
