“homework has limited value”

ABC Australia News: Study finds homework has limited value

This has been all over the news today in Australia.  Homework has been found to be of little value especially for lower primary years.  Many parents have also complained that there is too much homework.  I agree….I wrote about my views on homework HERE a couple of weeks ago.

    I couldn’t agree more! I truly wonder how anyone could consider “dumping” useless work on children a valuable strategy! It doesn’t work for adults! In fact, it is making our whole population unwell. Busy work never inspires – just isolates. Life affirming and joyous challenges will sustain us going forward!!
