We're all familiar with the downside of homework: frustration, exhaustion, and nagging. So why do we continue to administer this modern cod liver oil - or even demand a larger dose? Kohn's incisive analysis reveals how a set of misconceptions about learning and a misguided focus on competitiveness has left our kids with less free time, and our families with more conflict. Pointing to stories of parents who have fought back - and schools that have proved educational excellence is possible without homework - Kohn demonstrates how we can rethink what happens during and after school in order to rescue our families and our children's love of learning.
