No-homework rule for elementary and middle school: Revilla

Cebuano Cebuano English English Filipino Filipino

Senator Ramon Bong Revilla Jr. has introduced a bill that would ban homework in elementary and junior high schools. He claims that homework undermines student productivity and attitude toward learning, which raises dropout rates and lowers grades.

The “No Homework Act of 2023,” also known as Senate Bill No. 1792, will prohibit homework requirements on weekends and only permit them during the week. Additionally, the homework will just need to be brief and should only take two hours to complete. It will also be optional.

Less schoolwork, according to Revilla, allows parents to spend more time with their kids, allowing the latter to participate in more extracurricular activities.

According to him, a 2009 research by the OECD PISA (Program for International Student Assessment) indicated that the increased time spent on homework has a minimal effect on a student’s performance.

“Countries with much lower homework loads for kids explain that there is a correlation between giving pupils more homework and raising their anxiety levels, which results in a lack of enthusiasm for schoolwork. The extra time gives the kids a chance to unwind and improves their conceptual understanding, according to Revilla’s explanation.

The Department of Education’s (DepEd) Memorandum Circular No. 392, s. 2010, which specifies rules for assigning homework to all students in public primary schools, is intended to be institutionalized and expanded by the laws, according to Revilla.

The circular was created in response to parental worries about how much time students spend working on their assignments rather than spending pleasurable and meaningful time with their families.
