New York City Councilmember Proposes Resolution to Limit Homework

Yesterday, a New York City councilmember introduced a resolution to limit homework to 10 minutes per grade per night. The resolution, if passed, would not be binding, but, at the very least, it will spark some discussion. I am dismayed, though, by the comments to a <a Wall Street Journal blog entry, “So What’s the Right Amount of Homework for Kids?” The comments are leaning heavily towards the importance of homework. Read and post your own comments here.

  1. Message I posted on Wall Street Journal Blog:

    No, the government should not be getting involved with homework. As a matter of fact the government’s involvement with schools is why they’re in the mess they are. Time outside of a school day belongs to the student and his/her family and how that time is spent should be determined by them, not the town/city council or the schools.
