The Race to Nowhere: An Educational Experiment
Over holiday break Burlington High School has pledged to the Race to Nowhere. The Race to Nowhere is a pledge to no homework over vacation. This is meant to make the students less stressful over vacation and give the chance to spend more time with their families. Mr. Larkin saw the website for "The Road to Nowhere" and thought it was a good idea for the school to try out. Contrary to popular belief, the teachers from other schools that participated said the students felt recharged and ready to return to school. Burlington High School is going to try this out and if both teachers and students say it is successful, then it will be a plan to look at in the long term.
