64: The “H” Word

Homework (The “H” Word) has become a hot button topic lately as teachers are deciding to eliminate homework altogether in their classrooms. This episode hears from various educators and parents on their opinions on the hassle of homework as well as shares the detrimental effects of taking such drastic measures. Listen in to hear the debate and formulate your own opinion on what is best for a child’s development physically and mentally.


Balance is important and necessary
Achievement could drop without prioritized practice
Can’t jump extreme to extreme- that’s how trends come and go
Don’t just jump on a bandwagon of convenience
Prioritize and differentiate
