Cooper Homework

But, with the Internet being the Internet, misinformation spread quickly.

Cooper says that someone initially looked at his research and, without ever consulting him, homed in on one section of the study.

Here, Cooper explains how it all came to this and why, despite your kids’ objections, homework should always be a part of school.

First and foremost, Cooper’s study very clearly says that after looking at all the data, there’s “generally consistent evidence for a positive influence of homework on achievement.” In fact, that’s the fourth sentence in the study.

The link between you and your kid’s school life is a big deal, and homework is that link.

Cooper says he heard it from a parent who found out their kid had a learning disability. Aliens in nearby galaxies probably have an inkling.

In fact, Alfie Kohn’s The Homework Myth, says that sentence should be “e-mailed to every parent, teacher, and administrator in the country.”MORE: Father Outraged After His Daughter Receives ‘Highly Inappropriate’ Question on Her Anatomy Homework That sentence was merely a small part of a much larger, and more positive, analysis.

But that didn’t stop that narrative from spinning out of control.

“It gives parents an opportunity to express their, hopefully positive, attitudes to homework.

And it gives parents the chance to actually see how a child is doing.” Because this is the age where gold stars are literal gold stars.
