Last year a second-grade teacher from Texas sent a note home to parents declaring that she was not assigning homework. Parents posted it on Facebook, a viral response followed, and, within days, the "no homework" movement was official. Parents, teachers, and students have been debating the pros and cons of homework since the 19th century, but this single event seemed to galvanize an unprecedented commitment to the cause of ending homework once and for all. The reasons offered for banning homework are varied: Homework can cause undue stress and anxiety; it can be educationally counterproductive; it eats up free time that kids might otherwise use more creatively; and it creates "homework potatoes"—inactive kids—a problem given rising rates of childhood obesity. These arguments seem to hold more true for elementary and middle school students than for high schoolers. Needless to say, not everyone is on this bandwagon.
