The Department of Education recently issued a statement to clarify some points about the bill seeking to ban the practice of giving students home works.

This is in response to several issues being thrown to the proposed measure.

With the issuance of the DepEd Memorandum No. 392, series 2010, also known as “Guidelines on Giving Homework or Assignment to All Public Elementary School Pupils,” the said government agency reiterates its commitment to the holistic development of learners inside and outside the classroom.

In a statement, DepEd emphasized that the said issuance aims to enable learners to have more quality time with their parents, family, and friends by limiting the homework/assignment to a reasonable quantity on school days and by eliminating the same during weekends.

The education department supports the no-homework policy proposed by legislators from the House of Representatives. By ensuring that they complete all assignments and projects in school, the no-homework policy enables our learners to find balance between their academic development and personal growth by having ample time for enjoyable activities with family.

DepEd will further study the other provisions of the bills to determine the repercussions on the current teaching and learning process.
