NPR this week that a city in Sweden is debating a “No Homework Policy.” The argument for this policy is this: kids should be able to learn what they need to during the school day. We shouldn’t be overburdening them or their families with homework. Different types of learning take place as they interact with their families and the world. There should be a space for that.
