Strict Implementation of DepEd's Memorandum No. 392 stating NO HOMEWORK ON FRIDAYS

This petition had 48 supporters

This memorandum is already implemented by the Department of Education. But sadly, this is not followed by many schools. Teachers are still giving assignments every Friday.

This petition is not only for the benefit of students. This is also for their families that want to spend quality time with their children on weekends. But instead, students spend most of their time on the given take-home assignment and not with their families.

These take-home assignments are also making the students very stressed out, even on weekends. Instead of relaxing, students are stressing about deadlines, reports and the assignments.

And what about the students from the provinces that came from poor families? Also, what about the ones who are studying here in urbanized cities? There are some cases that teachers give students special tasks that they can't afford to work on. As for the kids that left their families in provinces, instead of coming home, they had to stay in city to get the assignments done. Some had to do it in the city where they can access good internet connection for researches because back home, they don't have good internet connection. Time that these students longed for to spend with their families at home are not given to them.

Nowadays, it might not be believable but us students do crave for time with our families.

Now, we are suggesting that teachers should have mercy on their students and the DepEd Memorandum 392 should be STRICTLY implemented in all schools.
