My sons' school has implemented a no-homework policy. The principal, a young, dynamic guy who has infused a lot of energy into the school (he completed the Boston Marathon last year!), is tracking the results based on report cards and key test scores. And it seems that after a year, all scores have gone up. It's only been a year, but it's interesting. I'm happy with it so far. I do believe in the theory, and it sure makes for way less stress and has really erased the whole I hate school thing for us. Anyway, here's the newspaper story.
