(Washington Free Beacon) -- Dr. Etta Kralovec, the author of "The End of Homework: How Homework Disrupts Families, Overburdens Children, and Limits Learning," claims that children’s time at home could and should be used in more meaningful ways and homework actually ends up undermining the overall learning process for students.
The idea has been implemented in multiple schools across the nation and the trend appears to be growing. Many teachers, students, and parents are thrilled with the idea and have celebrated the new policy.
What school kid wouldn’t be thrilled with the “no homework” movement? Kids hate homework. They love the idea of doing away with the busy work boredom of math problems and reading assignments so they can focus on the important things in life like Super Mario Kart and Minecraft.

And it makes sense that teachers like the idea. No homework means no grading homework, which means less time working for the same pay. A great deal for the teachers unions, which could never achieve such a “give back” at the collective bargaining table.
