Developing a Comprehensive Homework Policy
Fairbanks, Ellen Kelly; Clark, Margery; Barry, Joan
Principal, v84 n3 p36-39 Jan-Feb 2005
The authors describe the results of surveys conducted by a small school district in Massachusetts to determine homework practices and beliefs, including time spent on homework, parent assistance, homework format, and balancing of homework and other activities. The result was the establishment of a comprehensive homework policy, including grade-level time limits. A sidebar lists the homework responsibilities of students, parents, teachers, and principals.
