The Case Against Homework: How Homework Is Hurting Our Children and What We Can Do About It
Kylene Beers & Robert E. Probst
In this book, Bennett and Kalish draw on academic research, interviews with educators, parents, and kids, and their own experience as parents and successful homework reformers to offer advice to frustrated parents. You’ll find out which assignments advance learning and which are time-wasters, how to set priorities when your child comes home with an overstuffed backpack, how to talk and write to teachers and administrators in persuasive, non confrontational ways, and how to rally other parents to help restore balance in your children’s lives.
