For Free Homework Help, Call the Homework Hotline at 615 298-6636
Am I alone in thinking that today’s children have entirely too much homework?
The Homework Hotline, which began in 1990, is a service for students needing after-hours help with their assignments. A staff of mostly current and retired teachers works from 4-8 p.m. Monday through Thursday throughout the school year to assist students of all grade levels and their parents with homework questions. Help is available in English, Spanish, Kurdish, Arabic, Somalian and Laotian.
Hotline workers have taken more than 280,000 calls since its inception, including more than 35,000 calls in the 2005-2006 school year. Of that last number, 21,694 calls were from MNPS students and their families. Remaining calls were from students in other Middle Tennessee counties.
The majority of callers have questions with their math assignments, but help is also available for other subjects. Questions last year ranged from computer and history to Kwanzaa and science.
