Ban schools from setting mandatory homework over school holidays

Petition Details

All holiday homework should be voluntary. Teachers can still provide the same OPTIONAL homework for those who want more practice.

Additional Information

Holidays are for rest or catch up on course work. When teachers are on holidays they don't even reply to emails, so how is this fair? Teachers sometimes say that it is so students don't forget what they've learned. However, students wouldn't purposely spread their homework over time off making sure they won't forget anything. Everyone will try to get it out of the way ASAP and have some rest and family time! Those who need to catch up just get overloaded, have no time for rest and stress builds up.

If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
