Does homework suck?
October 3rd, 2006
Working Dad at the Seattle PI seems to think there is a debate over whether homework sucks. Ha! Homework sucks. It’s hard for me to believe that anyone thinks it does not suck. Our daughter was getting homework in kindergarten and now even more in first grade. I don’t think I had a similar homework load until 3rd or 4th grade and I turned out pretty well—anyway, I don’t think doing homework in kindergarten would have helped me earn my engineering degree.
“Nearly nine out of 10 teachers (89 percent) say students who use technology for help with homework do better on their assignments than those who do not.”
What does that mean? Googling the answers?
