…the older I get, the more I see how women are described as having gone mad, when what they’ve actually become is knowledgeable and powerful and fucking furious.

Alfie Kohn, The Case Against Homework (via thislifeunforgiven)

Shit I knew in school but was unable to articulate.

(via catbountry)

i think readings and projects can be beneficial to some extent(and maybe light problem sets for math), but the vast majority of what is assigned just takes away my time to explore other things. Part of this is also conditioning us to adjust to a standard workday I think- rewarding effort and compliancy so that we are rewarded for putting our time into work, for giving up our autonomy in return for grades. Eventually, we will give up that autonomy in return for wages.

After spending all day in school, our children are forced to begin a second shift, with more academic assignments to be completed at home. This arrangement is rather odd when you stop to think about it, as is the fact that few of us ever do stop to think about it.
Instead of assuming that homework should be a given, or that it allegedly benefits children, I’ve spent the last few years reviewing the available research and talking to parents, teachers and students. My findings can be summarized in seven words: Homework is all pain and no gain.
The pain is obvious to kids but isn’t always taken seriously by adults. Backpacks stuffed with assignments leave students exhausted, frustrated, less interested in intellectual pursuits and lacking time to do things they enjoy. “Most of what homework is doing,” says literacy expert Harvey Daniels, “is driving kids away from learning.”
We parents, meanwhile, turn into nags. After being away from our children all day, the first words out of our mouths, sadly, may be: “So, did you finish your homework?” One mother told me it permanently damaged her relationship with her son because it forced her to be an enforcer rather than a mom.
The surprising news, though, is that there are virtually no pros to balance the cons. Even if you regard grades or test scores as good measures of learning, which I do not, doing homework has no statistical relationship to achievement in elementary school. In high school, some studies do find a correlation between homework and test scores, but it’s usually fairly small. And in any case, it’s far from clear that the former causes the latter. And if you’re wondering, not a single study has ever supported the folk wisdom that homework teaches good work habits or develops positive character traits such as self-discipline, responsibility or independence.

cisyphus:

Revolutionary politics cannot be a politics of cruelty, in all things profound compassion should motivate. Hate for the system should be driven by compassion for those killed by the system. Revolutionary callousness is not a virtue.
