A warm welcome to the Wilf Family Department of Politics at New York University. We are a thriving intellectual community devoted to the systematic analysis of political phenomena. The Department has almost 40 faculty spanning the frontiers of research in the field of Political Science. This article reviews two books; The Myth of Homework: Why our kids get too much of a bad thing by Alfie Kohn and The Case Against Homework: How homework is hurting our children and what we can do about it by Bennett & Kalish Few topics generate more conversation at the school gate than homework but there is little discussion amongst educationalists or teachers during their training or in practice. This book is an absolutely inspiring report for all CTE reform leaders in the world. — Ursula Renold, head of research division education systems, Swiss Economic Institute, ETH Zurich The report of the Commission on the Skills of the American Workforce strongly recommended that the United States greatly raise academic standards for all.
