If you’re hoping that 2010 will be a better school year, homework-wise, why not give your child’s teacher a copy of The Case Against Homework: How Homework Is Hurting Our Children and What We Can Do About It? If s/he reads it over the holiday break, s/he just might return with a new, informed, and changed attitude. At the same time, why not pick up a few extra copies and give them to those in charge of school policy?
And, if you’re thinking of making a year-end donation to a cause, please make a tax-deductible donation to Stop Homework by sending a check to:
Alliance for Childhood
P.O. Box 444
College Park, MD 20741
Be sure to earmark your check for “Stop Homework” in the memo line. If your donation is $100 or more, drop me a line with your address and I’ll send you a signed copy of The Case Against Homework.
Stop Homework is supported by a small grant from a private foundation. It’s crucial that the funder know that individuals like you support the work of Stop Homework and rely on it for advice, information, resources, support, etc. An outpouring of support from readers of this blog–no matter the size of the donation–would help ensure the longevity of this project. So even if you can send only a few dollars, please do so.
