Homework Myth: Why Our Kids Get Too Much of a Bad Thing

Montessori Books
SKU:

A compelling exposé of homework – how it fails our children, why it’s so widely accepted, and what we can do about it.
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 mistrust of children, a set of misconceptions about learning, and a misguided focus on competitiveness have all left our kids with less free time and our families with more conflict. Pointing to parents who have fought back – and schools that have proved educational excellence is possible without homework — Kohn shows how we can rethink what happens during and after school in order to rescue our families and our children’s love of learning.
