  • Is it Homework or Homeschooling? ( 3158 reads)   

    Homework remains a very hot topic, even being addressed on national news programs. Advocates for homework claim that it's necessary in order for children to keep up with other countries. Due to the recent emphasis on standardized tests, many schools have added test-prep practice to be done at home. Still some advocates hold the notion that homework is a means for making children into high achievers. On the other hand are those arguing against homework, or to be specific, too much homework for young children. Those in this camp hold that elementary children could develop a dislike for school and have mental health problems due to stressing over homework. In addition, the argument has been made that homework interferes with family time and the free time that young children need to develop extracurricular skills in sports and the arts. - Category: Education
