Alfie Kohn, "The Homework Myth - Questioning Achievement Pressures in (and after) School"
What if homework turned out to be all pain (frustration, exhaustion, family conflict) and no gain? Alfie Kohn explores why children are forced to work a second shift in the evening despite the lack of proven benefit and what we can do about it.
Kohn (www.alfiekohn.org) is the author of eleven books on education, parenting, and human behavior, including The Homework Myth and Punished by Rewards. He has appeared on Oprah, The Today Show, and NPRs Talk of the Nation, and speaks regularly at national conferences.
Co-sponsored by the Parent Education Committees of West Mercer, Island Park and Lakeridge Elementaries, St. Monica's, Islander Middle and Mercer Island High Schools.
