Kaye Marie Fernan started this petition to Sr. Rosalinda F. Calong OP

       We all believe that time is everything and very important. We want to use it wisely specially with our self and loved ones. However, there is homework as students we know what are the advantages of homework it encourages us, it teaches us time management, and it creates effective communication. But also, home works stops us from being with ourselves and with our family, it takes us away from being bond with them, that is why our petition is to ban home works during weekends.

      We believe that this policy would be very effective in giving quality time spending our time with our families. We have all experience that there are some parents complaining about home works during weekends, they we believe that the time of there children with them is being taken away. As a student, whenever there is a time that we will go out with our family we tend to stay at home to do our home works because if we don't do it the teacher will be disappointed that we didn't do our home works. With this policy, students would not be so worried about not doing their home works or even avoid cramming instead use there weekend to have fun and rest together with there families.

     Countries that assign more homework don’t outperform those with less homework. Around the world, countries that assign more homework don’t see to perform any better. According to Stanford study found that in countries like Japan, Denmark, and the Czech Republic little homework was assigned and students outperformed students in counties with large amounts of homework such as Greece, Thailand, and Iran. American and British students seem to have more homework than most counties, and still only score in the international average. In fact, Japan has instituted no homework policies at younger levels to allow family time and personal interests. Finland, a national leader in international tests, limits high school homework to half hour per night. Of course, there are other factors not taken into account in the study, such as length of the school day. But in itself, it is interesting to see this issue from a world perspective.

However, a group a private schools who disagree with this idea. The school said that it is more important that children should have assignments. They believe that not giving home works to students during weekends might just make themselves to be sitting around the house and pin their eyes on social media that will cause more harm and distraction on their physical and mental health. But this is the time change, we have to accept change, technology is here and we need to embrace it and use it as a tool for a new success. This is a new generation, as a learner we can use this to expand our knowledge and use it in our daily lives for example survival, academics communication and etc. There is so many to expect to our generation and we can learn a lot from it to help each other and apply it to ourselves.

           

            Therefore no home works or project shall be given during weekends not only in public schools but also be implemented in private schools. After all, this take home school work policy is about the student themselves it should be given during weekdays and not weekends to achieve our goal to have quality time with our families and to use it in different ways to apply it in our daily lives.
