Is Assignment, Efficient?

This petition had 73 supporters

Back in 2010, The Department of Education issued a memorandum regarding the "no homework policy", but only to all public elementary public school pupils. We all know that students are often stressed regarding their school works, which is why they tend to neglect other things such as their social life, relationship with family, hobbies/talents and most of all, they tend to neglect their health and well-being, most students lack sleep and are not able to eat meals sometimes which results to lack of focus and concentration at school, therefore affecting their academic performance.

Therefore, we would like to petition and ask the Department of Education or Dominican College, our school for support. This campaign/petition is for all students, from preschool to high school, both private, to be included in this "no homework policy' every weekend so that we students will be given a chance to rest and relax at home, be able to develop our talents, indulge in our hobbies and interests and be able to spend quality time with with our families instead of being burdened by the load of the homework/schoolwork given by teachers for each subject. We believe that we students can improve our performance at school and actively participate in class if we are well-rested, happy and healthy. A healthy mind brings about an efficient body after all.
