French president pushing homework ban as part of ed reforms
He doesnít think it is fair that some kids get help from their parents at home while children who come from disadvantaged families donít. Itís an issue that goes well beyond France, and has been part of the reason that some Americans oppose homework too.I really don't know what to write. Is this even real? Are you freaking kidding me?"Education is priority,Ē Hollande was quoted as saying by France24.com at Parisís Sorbonne University last week. ďAn education program is, by definition, a societal program. Work should be done at school, rather than at home,Ē as a way to ensure that students who have no help at home are not disadvantaged.
Hollande wants to punish kids for having involved parents out of "fairness"?
So is he going to ban parenting next? It's really no more absurd than banning homework.
