There are few traditions more firmly rooted in our educational system than homework. But while homework is widely used in schools, is it really a great learning tool? How does homework fit into the grading system? Should school districts have a homework policy? Please join host Ray Pinney as he discusses one district’s journey in remaking its homework policies with Dr. Ross Kasun, superintendent for the Freehold Township School District.
Homework. Ever since public schools have been in existance it has probably been a source of contention between kids, parents and teachers. Unfortunately, for students with autism, the problem reaches much farther than the "I don't wanna"s. And now, a recent study says what Lorin Neikirk has been voicing for over a decade: lots of homework has issues. Big ones.
Denise Pope, senior lecturer at the Stanford Graduate School of Education, and co-author of the study, says "We found a clear connection between the students' stress and physical impacts -- migraines, ulcers and other stomach problems, sleep deprivation and exhaustion, and weight loss." (Full study was published in the Journal of Experimental Education.)
But what about the student on the spectrum? They love to learn... Seem so bright... Surely THEY just love homework, right? Not necessarily. The needs of autistic students are somewhat unique, even in light of the study.
Join Lorin Neikirk as we delve into what homework works, what doesn't, and what should be avoided entirely in this episode of Aspie Friendly on BlogTalkRadio.

School homework we all had to do it when we were young. But with every new generation comes a new debate. The debate now is whether or not kids should have homework. Some studies say homework does not improve learning while others say it does. Some parents say kids have way too much school homework and can not possibly get it all done. In today's fast paced society, with busy parents and busy students, should school homework be banned? Does homework help prepare our children to learn more in school? Does doing homework help improve retention? What about online homework help, should it be banned too? Whether you live in Atlanta or the surrounding area your voice matters. Tune in where you will hear the comments of parents,students, educators and YOU.
