Teachers debate value of homework

From the CEC Smart Brief:

A small but growing number of teachers are no longer assigning homework, particularly at the elementary-school level, because they believe such assignments make a difference in student achievement. The most widely accepted research suggests that homework boosts student scores in the short-term and, when assigned in moderate amounts, improves student learning in the long-term, especially for high school students.
