No children like homework, but it's supposed to be good for them, right? Right?
Maybe not, according to Sara Bennett and Nancy Kalish. In their book The Case Against Homework, the authors argued that despite that time children spend doing homework has been skyrocketing in recent years, there is no evidence that that helps them succeed academically.
Indeed, too much homework may even hurt as it robs children of their time to play, sleep, and exercise. What do you think?
