If peace is ever to reign on earth, it will come as a result of education in what it takes for peaceful living. Toward that end, in his book, "The Homework Myth," Alfie Kohn provides thoughtful, even passionate, insights. Most basically it is that homework is at best way down the scale for effective learning; at worst it is cop-out for ineffective teaching. Homework as too often practiced not only often retards learning, but can disrupt family life as well. It has no provable positive effects at all through grade 5.
