The Merrimack School District, particularly its school board, appears to have a problem in communicating. We don’t presume to know whether a change in the use of student homework as a component of overall grading is a plus or minus.

A parent was so concerned by this decision that he sued the district. He lost. We think the court was wise to steer clear of this controversy.
