Yours kids on homework
From Salon -- Homework is Wrecking Our Kids. The title may be a bit melodramatic, but important data here nonetheless about the destructiveness of homework. It's more than just pointless at the elementary school level, it's a net loss. "Non-academic priorities (good sleep, family relationships and active playtime) are vital for balance and well-being. They also directly impact a child’s memory, focus, behavior and learning potential. Elementary lessons are reinforced every day in school. After-school time is precious for the rest of the child."
