London: French President Francois Hollande has reportedly said he would ban schools from giving their pupils homework as part of a series of reforms to overhaul the country`s education system.

According to Daily Mail, France`s new government says it is unfair that some children get help from their parents at home while children who come from disadvantaged families don`t.

The government also argues that primary schoolchildren risk classroom burnout, and is thus moving to help them cope.

In France, children have lessons just four days a week. And they get two hours each day for lunch and enjoy longer school holidays. School children currently attend classes Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.
