Schools That Do Too Much by Etta Kralovec
Book DescriptionThis book argues that schools systematically misspend their two most precious resources: time and money. From class schedules that fragment students' time, to budgets that sink money into dozens of activities that distract from learning, schools over and over try to do too much and end up delivering too little by way of real teaching and learning.

This title paints a disturbing portrait of the educational landscape, arguing that schools, carrying the burden of too many functions, abdicate teaching responsibility by assigning too much homework to pupils. The author argues that homework limits learning and interferes with family time.
