The president of France has announced a plan for a government ban on all homework for school children
France President has announced a plan for a government ban on all homework for school children, according to reports. In explaining the ban the president said: “I do not think it's fair that some children receive help from their parents at home, while children from poor families do not. It is an issue that goes far beyond France, and has been part of the reason why some Americans oppose the task well.” Education is a priority, Hollande was quoted as saying by the local newspaper last week. "An education program is, by definition, a social program. Work should be done in school, rather than at home, as a way to ensure that students who do not have help at home are not disadvantaged,” he said.
