The Homework Myth, by Alfie Kohn

The Homework Myth, by Alfie Kohn

256 pages

Is it really truly that massive amounts of homework help 'build character'? Probably not. Does it actually help teach anything when students are just doing worksheets? Probably not. And do parents really benefit from having to fight with their kids night after night over whether or not they've done all their homework? Nope. So why do we assign tons and tons of homework at a younger and younger age?

It was a good read, although he tended to get slightly repetitive as the book went on.
