Abstract

The article reviews the book 'The End of Homework' by Etta Kralovec and John Buell, Boston:Beacon Press, 2000. It takes a broadly sympathic stance to their view that homework is socially divisive, stress-laden, and an out-dated concept in the information age. It suggests alternative approaches to the use of school time to make learning more efficient and effective.
