We have all had our share of crazy homework, but parents in Pittsburgh say that their first-graders recently received a homework assignment that raised some concerns.
One of the mom's posted the homework assignment for first graders on her Facebook page. The assignment involved two people named Tom and Rob running from a cop. “Tom will run. He will run from the cop. Tom will run with Rob. They will not stop,” the reading assignment said.
The mom couldn't believe it and she was not alone. The school district also couldn't believe it and released a statement saying that the assignment was “inappropriate.” They went on to say that “The worksheet is not a part of the District’s curriculum or intervention programs,” and that it is "unacceptable."
The mom also urged other parents to pay attention to their children’s homework.
