Constructing Modern Knowledge 2010 guest speaker, Alfie Kohn, just published a provocative article suggesting meaningful questionnaires for parents regarding the value of homework. This is an important discussion for every community.

These questions excerpted from his book, The Homework Myth: Why Our Kids Get Too Much of a Bad Thing, are well worth reading and sharing with other parents and educators.

I also whole-heartedly recommend investing $29.5 in Alfie Kohn’s fantastic DVD, No Grades + No Homework = Better Learning.
