Dean Michael Uttendorfer, New York Institute of Technology, School of Education, was recently interviewed on Judith West's "Getting Your Money's Worth" show in response to a New York Times' Letter to the Editor.
"The volume of homework for kids has drastically increased proportionately to the emphasis in the past few years on testing. Dr. Michael Uttendorfer, Dean, NYIT School of Education, believes there can be too much homework. He feels most homework is just practice rather than work that builds skills. Studies show that the amount of homework for elementary ages has no bearing on their ability to perform. Dr. Uttendorfer and Judith West have an interesting discussion on this topic on Getting Your Money's Worth." Click here to see the interview.
