I was wondering if there are any public or private schools or districts or even states that do
have - no homework policy.
We were just discussing with friends the many benefits of kids having time to
rest and play after school as opposed to repeat what they did at school
and what they should have learned at school, and conisering
endless hours they spend and school and.. as funny as it is, many times it is
parents who do the homework anyways..
Growing up, my (Montessori) elementary school didn't give any homework... But I don't know of any such schools in my area now. You might get more answers pertaining to schools in the Learning at School forum. This forum is mostly read by homeschoolers who might not know the homework policies of their local schools.
in one of his books (maybe what does it mean to be educated?) alfie kohn lists schools that have no grades (i think) and probably no homework either.
My son's elementary school had zero homework, and their middle school was as minimal as possible.
