Re: “South Burlington School Bans Homework, Urges Kids to Play

For anyone struggling to support a no homework and more play for students approach - I encourage you to watch the movie The Race to Nowhere. I think it's important to use science based research to guide our decisions about what is best for children and not our personal values.

I agree that there is not a one size fits all. I also do agree with the science that has stated there is no evidence proving that more is better.

With that said, how can supporting the science of play and passionate interest be advocated for so that kids are actually getting it. Tv and screen time is becoming an overwhelming problem ichildren's learning.

I don't believe parents intentionally do things to ruin their child's development. I think most simply do not know the impact. And, more people are living in survival. Which means adults are not getting play time. It will takes all of us to turn this around!
