"Race to Nowhere" Hits Washington

. . . the Washington Post, that is. The '"Race to Nowhere" conversation' has become the centerpiece of a lively debate between director/filmmaker Vicki Abeles and respected education columnist, Jay Mathews. We want to know: is your student one of the "majority" of high schools students that Mathews cites as only doing an hour or less of homework per day? Or is your child over-scheduled, over-extended, and over-stressed by homework and other school-related commitments? Take our poll and share it with others.
