Homework, are we talking about homework?

Got this from the ASCD daily email. The discussion on the blog is great, check it out

My Back Pages: Questioning Homework
In 1950, a survey of 7th and 8th grade teachers in rural New Jersey found that teachers said homework had long been a discouraged practice, and that two-thirds of the teachers did not assign any. Some teachers admitted to assigning some, but only "if the child does not have too much farmwork, or if homework helps him with a special need." An ASCD blog post looks back at the "Educational Leadership" article which highlights this survey, and examines why these teachers found homework unfavorable. The post also seeks feedback from readers on how these survey results relate to their opinions of current homework practices
