The Homework Myth : Why Our Kids Get Too Much of a Bad Thing Paperback / softback


So why do we continue to administer this modern cod liver oil-or even demand a larger dose?

Kohn's incisive analysis reveals how a set of misconceptions about learning and a misguided focus on competitiveness has left our kids with less free time, and our families with more conflict.

Pointing to stories of parents who have fought back-and schools that have proved educational excellence is possible without homework-Kohn demonstrates how we can rethink what happens during and after school in order to rescue our families and our children's love of learning.
