I recently heard from Viviana Izzo, a mother of 4 from Santiago, Chile, who, with her friend, Teresa Castro, met with their children’s small school to express their concerns about homework. Since then, a Santiago newspaper ran an article about their attempts to change homework policy, they were interviewed on TV, and they have started a blog, colegio sin tareas. If you can read Spanish, take a look at the blog. There’s a very nice summary of the problems with homework and more than 70 comments, almost all by people who don’t like homework.
