Below is an excerpt of his presentation:
We know that homework causes stress and conflict,www.swisspam.com frustration and exhaustion. But at least, we tell ourselves, it teaches our children independence and good work habits, “reinforces” what they’ve been taught, and helps them to become more successful learners.

Or does it? Alfie Kohn, the American author of The Homework Myth and many other books on education, reviews the usual defenses of homework and finds that none is actually supported by research, logic, or experience. Moreover, making children work a second shift after school is over-represents just one part of a larger effort to pressure them to work harder, get good grades, and score better on exams – all of which has intellectual as well as emotional costs.

NOTE:  The presentation will be in English with Korean translation support provided during Q & A.
