Sigh. It's all the same stuff. It seems like nothing has changed since Sara wrote The Case Against Homework (2006!)
I'm writing this post mostly to bookmark the article, which for some reason is not easy to find.
Also, I liked this comment:
Assigning so much homework that young people with after school jobs or household responsibilities (caring for a younger sibling or sick family member) cannot possibly finish the homework and also show up for their other responsibilities sure separates the rich from the poor in a hurry.Good point.
