The Brown Center Debunks the Homework Myth (Online Exclusive)

How well are American students learning? For 13 years, the Brown Center Report on American Education has sought to answer that question and to identify policies that help more American students learn better.

Each year, the Brown Center Report offers in-depth, data-driven analysis of pressing topics and trends in American education. The recently-released 2014 report investigates three critical issues that have universal ramifications for students and parents in American schools: the homework burden, the Common Core State Standards, and the PISA-Shanghai Controversy.

On Friday, March 21 at 2:00 p.m. EDT, report author and Brookings Senior Fellow Tom Loveless will share some of his most controversial findings in an online chat hosted by Spreecast and moderated by education expert Ben Wildavsky of the Rockefeller Institute of Government, State University of New York. Tune in to listen – and participate – below!
