I find this absolutely mind-boggling to the point that I decided to post this item today rather than wait until tomorrow for my daily blog post. Education Week has a roundtable discussion on school schedules. I found the article through ASCD's daily brief, entitled, "Teacher panelists explore the concept of time in education." No one mentioned homework. How is that we can put professional energies into looking at time, a valuable commodity when considering education, and completely overlook the time children spend doing their homework?
