Chalk Talk: Should Kids Have Homework?
Most kids will tell you that they shouldn’t have to take work home after a long day at school, and some teachers are beginning to agree. Districts across the nation have begun experimenting with the notion that school work stays at school. A large factor in the decision to move away from homework is a desire by school officials to preserve the joy of learning. According to teachers that favor a no homework policy, homework tends to be tedious, uninteresting work that becomes a chore – something children are forced to do rather than something that they want to do. By eliminating those kinds of tasks, the hope is that students will retain joy for learning and be more engaged in the process while in school. What some teachers have found is that kids are voluntarily taking things home to further their studies. They may decide to read more about a topic they learned about in class, take an art project home to show their parents, or write in their journal. Whatever the case, some schools that have eliminated homework seem to have brought some of the fun back to learning for their students.
