No Homework Policy During Weekends for Students in the Philippines
Department of Education (DepEd) just announced of a no homework policy or no assignment policy during weekend. How do you think about this? If you are reading this then you have anything to say about this I think. I forgot how it was like to have a homework during weekends in my elementary years. I think having many homework during weekend is really a big burden to students where the time is supposed to spend with the family.
Students will benefit in this policy. Will this policy have a goof effect on the student? Having many assignments during weekend will surely rob the time of both the parents and the children. So I think I will agree on this matter. How about the no quizz policy during Monday? Will this be included too? If teachers will give quizzes on Monday so students have to study during weekends and thus robbing the time of the students to their families.
What would be the reaction of the teachers on this? I think teachers would be out of burden too in giving assignments. There are really many parents who complain about many homework during weekend thus losing some quality time with their children.
The order is only from public elementary schools though. So how many public elementary schools in the Philippines? There are about 37, 600 schools. How many do you think are the total students in this school. There are really many which had an estimated total of 12.5 million students all over the Philippines.
Taking a 2 day rest during weekend, without the worry of low grades because of unmade class homework, is a really great proposal by DepEd. I tried to search about no quizz after weekend. Is there such policy as no quizz after weekends?
So we must spend quality time with our family. It helps a lot in our emotional quotient.
