It's only been around for a short while, I've only just got used to where all the bits are.

'Councils told to act on parents' views'
So is that the vociferous group of parents who think homework should be banned in primary schools, or the equally numerous, equally vociferous group who think it should stay.

You only have to look at any education thread on MN to see how unlikely you are to get a consensus.
