Abstract/ Summary

Nothing brings the beliefs and practices of a school directly into family life or influences the household like homework. A recent report from the University of Maine helps educators, parents and students take a step back from the emotional debate and a look at some objective research on the issue.

The Center for Research and Evaluation at UMaine's College of Education and Human Development has compiled a summary of some of the national research examining the pros and cons of homework over the past two decades.
