Some parents hate seeing their kids slaving over homework. And some experts agree. But - not so fast. Some veteran educators say homework builds knowledge, character and good work habits. Join us on The Sound of Ideas as we take up the subject of homework - what's it's worth and how much is too much. We'll find out how teachers can make homework meaningful, Friday morning at nine on 90.3.
