Homework on cover of August 2016 Kiwanis magazine

The great debate

Tension over homework is too much is an ongoing debate in homes and schools around the world. On one side are parents and schools who say that children need to study more to maintain an advantage in an increasingly competitive world. The contention on the other side is that seven or eight hours of school is enough, and kids need time for other activities.

Read "Homework: The Great Debate" in the August 2016 issue of Kiwanis magazine.

In this issue, you'll also find:
  • Building a Strong Foundation: Reading, writing and comprehension are the building blocks for success in school and in life.
  • With Honors: Faced with adversity, these award-winning scholars get recognition for their achievements.
  • The Kiwi Science Theory: New Zealand Kiwanians put their signature on the nation's science fairs.
  • Oh, Canada: Toronto plays host to Kiwanis-family conventions and helps celebrate 100 years of Kiwanis in Canada.
