No, I feel kids need time to be kids. Let them have their summers!

Sure why not? I dont see why learning should stop. I think assignments such as books to read to prep for the next year are great. My daughter is going into K but already she does "homework" every night or so. She loves it!

If kids need an extra academic boost, then yes. Definitely agree with reading over the summer, especially reading for pleasure.

Even elite public/magnet schools here demand reading lists and papers to be written over the summer. I prefer to self-teach over the summer so it interferes with my plans. I will only choose schools that do not over reach their boundaries.

Yes, I little homework doesn't hurt. I personally already have math worksheets and some reading material set up for my 5th grader and my 10th is taking summer school to get ahead.

Never heard of it. Sounds scandalous. But also useful. Might even help parents with the nagging issue. Maybe it should only be simple directives like "learn your times tables" "read at least 5 books".

A little bit of homework can go a long way. Just my two cents.

It depends on the circumstances.But homework a parent doles out, like math worksheets and lots of reading will make sure your child isn't behind in the fall.
