If you have a child who struggles with homework, it could be time to relocate to Quebec.
College de Saint-Ambroise, a school of 339 students in the Canadian province's Saguenay region, has announced that homework is banned for a year for all students in the first through sixth grades.
CNN affiliate WPTZ reports that the school isn't the first to try such a ban. A Barrie, Ontario, school also tried a similar ban in 2008. According to spokeswoman Marie-Eve Desrosiers, the Jonquiere school board wants to see whether the ban will help improve scholastic outcomes. Teachers will still be allowed to assign studying and reading work, however.
The topic has been the subject of hot debate in past years, with students making bold statements such as "Homework is the reason I fail." French President François Hollande proposed that homework be banned in France as a whole in 2012, but the concept has not become a law as of yet.
Do you think your children should have homework, or would going without it help them to be more productive?
