There is growing push-back from students, parents, and even school administrators about homework assigned over weekends.
I REMEMBER when I was still in school, I did not really bother my parents to help me in my assignments, projects, and even quarterly exams.
As they say, I became a diligent student and earned my reward being included in the list of honor students every year.“Schools should design academic and non-academic program schedules in a way that will not affect family time, and that includes no assignments on weekends,” said Bishop Roberto Mallari of San Jose, the chairman of the Episcopal Commission on Catechesis and Catholic Education at the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines.Mallari’s comments came after several lawmakers in Asia’s most Catholic country proposed legislation banning the practice of giving homework assignments. Eminent heads are calling for it head and the demand for its effective ban is getting more vocal.Yes, there are learned fellows who ask for a middle path; something which seems more logical.You can help Crux by giving a small amount monthly, or with a onetime gift.Please remember, Crux is a for-profit organization, so contributions are not tax-deductible.However, the fuss about the proposed "No homework policy" has affected not only students and parents, but also teachers and educators.Parents in general seem to be happy about the said proposal, but teachers are saying otherwise.Under the proposed measure of Senator Poe intended for public and private schools, teachers may only assign homework to students on weekends provided that it will be minimal and will not require more than four hours to be completed."The Department of Education has expressed its support to the proposed "No homework policy," stating in a statement that the "Department supports the no-homework policy proposed by legislators from the House of Representatives.By ensuring that they complete all assignments and projects in school, the no-homework policy enables our learners to find balance between their academic development and personal growth by having ample time for enjoyable activities with family."This is my personal take on this matter: of the three proposals filed, the most plausible one is the bill filed by Senator Grace Poe.
