Is too much homework spoiling family life?

Evidence suggests that homework provides absolutely no academic benefits for younger students. It also raises serious questions about whether homework is necessary for older students, and it challenges the belief that homework promotes independence and good work habits.

Alfie Kohn systematically examines the usual defences of homework - that it promotes higher achievement, 'reinforces' learning, and teaches study skills and responsibility.

The Homework Myth shows that none of these assumptions pass the test of research, logic, or experience.

Here at The Children's Project we have been concerned for some time about the levels of homework our young children are expected to do. We welcome this book's refreshing look at the unthinkable - that maybe homework is counter-productive.
