KALAMAZOO, MI -- Three years after setting districtwide homework standards, officials at Kalamazoo Public Schools say the standards are working much better in the elementary grades compared to the middle and high schools. "The elementary teachers bought in, and bought in pretty quickly," KPS Superintendent Michael Rice said during a discussion of the policy at Thursday's school board meeting.
