Episode 65: Ban Homework Forever?
Homework may be the single least favorite world of children worldwide. And with good reason. It has one heck of a reputation. It’s the stealer of kid’s dreams and the evil of their nightmares. It robs them of play time and they would love nothing more than to banish it forever. Funny thing is, maybe they’re right.
There is considerable evidence that homework is overrated. Like, by a lot. It’s benefits have been disputed by repeated studies especially among elementary students. And even though it seems to have been around since the dawn of time, it might be time to get rid of it. Completely. Permanently. Weird, I know. But these are new times requiring us to rethink what works. And maybe homework just doesn’t anymore.
