MetLife Survey of the American Teacher: The Homework Experience. A Survey of Students, Teachers and Parents
MetLife, Inc.
This report is the twenty-fourth in a series of surveys sponsored annually by MetLife since 1984 as a public service. This "MetLife Survey" examines the perspectives and experiences of teachers, students and parents regarding the purposes, quantity, quality, and value of homework. The Survey also includes an online strategy session with public school principals, teachers and department chairs. Its findings reveal opinions about homework for each of these key stakeholders, challenge some popular perceptions about the impact of homework on children's and families' lives, and also offer insights for teacher preparation and induction. The following are appended: (1) Methodology; and (2) Questionnaire. (Contains 4 footnotes and 119 figures.) [For the 2006 (twenty-third) edition of this survey, see ED496558.]
