Homework Series, Part Two

Across the nation, educators are balancing mandates to improve test scores and a chronic lack of resources with the need for children to have enough time to simply be children. In the second of a four-part Morning Edition series on homework, NPR's Claudio Sanchez examines how one inner-city school's careful use of homework can be a lifeline to some children struggling to keep up.
