Time to stop homework

6 June 2015 1,387 views One Comment

primary-schoolEnd homework it has got totally out of hand children are often in school from 8 am till late afternoon we then expect them to do homework often at secondary level 2 hours a night longer at weekend and then when they get a holiday they are set project ruining any quality family time they have. In the past we have criticized the Japanese for the stress they put their children under and the high rate of teenage suicide we in UK now equal them.

By 11 children are in danger of burn out mentally and physically. Good teaching and some support from parents i.e reading with young children is acceptable. Increasingly on top of all the school stress children are being sent to tutors to ensure they get school places/pass exams.

One day we will look back and time will prove me right we have a lost generation of children who cannot play and laugh and have chronic stress.

    I totally agree. Children need to have their childhood back. I’m just writing a book on this very thing.
