France mulls banning homework for students



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.
