The Lost Cause of Homework Reform.
Gill, Brian; Schlossman, Steven
American Journal of Education, v109 n1 p27-62 Nov 2000
Examines the homework reform movement, which emerged in the early 1900s on the margins of progressive education and achieved its greatest influence on educational thought and practice just after World War II. Describes the pre-World War II origins, the immediate postwar years, the redefining of rationale and content, and individualization, time constraints, and scheduling. (Contains references.) (SM)
