The onslaught comes despite the fact that an exhaustive review by the nation's top homework scholar, Duke University's Harris Cooper, concluded that homework does not measurably improve academic achievement for kids in grade school.

We covered this in a previous class. Do keep up, or ask your friends for lecture notes.
