Mamas, Don’t Let Your Babies Grow up to Be Book Reviewers
Posted by: Keir Graff

In a Los Angeles Times article about homework (“Some schools are cutting back on homework,” by Seema Mehta), Eileen Horowitz, head of the Temple Israel of Hollywood Day School, had this to say:

I ask myself that question every day.
