Homework has become a hot topic among out-of-school time providers; schools are assigning children more homework and parents want their children to complete their homework. This research paper is designed to help out-of-school programs think through their role in providing homework assistance and guide them in thinking about questions such as: What does the research say about homework? How much impact does homework have on school achievement? What are kids, families, and staff thinking about homework? How can we take these diverse perspectives into account as we make our decision? How do various programs approach homework assistance? How do we train staff to successfully provide homework assistance?
