I like non-fiction, and I'm learning to like fiction more every day.

The End of Homework: How Homework Disrupts Families, Overburdens Children, and Limits Learning

The End of Homework: How Homework Disrupts Families, Overburdens Children, and Limits Learning - Etta Kralovec, John Buell Awesome. I love the chapter on the history of education, and I love the suggestion that teachers and schools can intrude (through homework) into the privacy of family life. Seriously, everyone wants children to succeed academically, but it has to be done the right way. This book serves as a great addition to the discussion of the proper role of homework and education.
