SHESPEAKS Your Power to Influence

A new trend in elementary schools is to give minimal or no homework to grades K-2 (other than reading) because studies show it can do more harm than good. What do you think?

What has been your experience with homework and younger kids?

I agree! Younger kids should spend after-school playing and exploring (61.5%)

I disagree! Homework reinforces what kids learn in school and is good for even young kids to do (19.3%)

I'm not sure. Some homework can be good, as long as it is for a specific learning purpose (19.3%)

    I'm all for reading outside of school, but school work should be done at school. Kids are at school the equivalent of a work day. Adults don't go to work only to bring work home. Why should young children? Let them go home and play, and be active after a day of sitting still.

    I believe a small amount of homework is helpful for them to recap on what they learned during the day
