Abolish homework in Schools

Abolish homework in High school, Children don't learn from homework and it only restricts time for Children to play with their friends.

This e-petition has been rejected with the following reason given:

E-petitions cannot be used to request action on issues that are outside the responsibility of the government. This includes:

  • party political material
  • commercial endorsements including the promotion of any product, service or publication
  • issues that are dealt with by devolved bodies, eg The Scottish Parliament
  • correspondence on personal issues

E-petitions cannot be used for freedom of information requests.

The following explanatory notes have been added:

Homework is not compulsory. All schools are encouraged to draw up a written policy on homework which should set out the arrangements made by schools to ensure that the total amount of homework set for pupils either daily or weekly is consistent and manageable for them on a daily basis. They should not be required to work in a way which gives them too much to do on some days and too little on others.
