No Homework During School Vacations…Seems Like A No-Brainer?

This was also posted on the Connected Principals Blog

I received this video embedded in an e-mail from Vicki Abeles and the folks at Race to Nowhere which talks about schools that have decided that there will be a no homework rule during school vacations. After watching the short clip and listening to the rationale, it seems like a no-brainer to me. Why shouldn’t we do this?

For more on the topic of homework from the Race To Nowhere site, I encourage you to check out Homework in the 21st Century.
