Does Homework Help?
Walberg, Herbert J.
School Community Journal, v1 n1 p13-15 Spr-Sum 1991
A survey of eighth graders in 11 countries showed that countries whose students averaged the most homework (8 to 9 hours weekly) also had the highest average test scores. Swedish and U.S. students did the least homework (4 to 5 hours weekly) and had the lowest scores. Japan's system is praised and U.S. youth's TV-viewing habits deplored. (MLH)
