School bans homework in favor of family time

Where do we sign up? A school in Montreal has a no homework policy that has not only students thrilled, but not everyone agrees with the move.

Elizabeth Ballantyne elementary school in Montreal has instituted the homework ban to give kids and their families more time together.

Michael Brown, the school’s principal, told CTV News that students should not spend all day at school working then be expected to have hours of after-school work.

Absolutely agree. Was outside playing/supervising our child playing with the neighborhood kids this past week and struck a neighbor dad that I didn't think kids were a bother. All he could do was complain that he had two children and in front of his kids. Sad. Radical self centeredism strikes again. The attitude must be to kill them in the womb, but if you don't, then pawn them off on the government or some private school so you don't have to bother with them.
Walking through a store once with my four children, a woman walked past me and shook her head saying, "What a strain, what a burden." I turned and smiled, and said, "They are our treasures and our blessings." It's a shame how society has been convinced that children are a curse, rather than a blessing.

We all wish that every kid would want to spend time with their parents, but I'm afraid that kids would rather spend time doing something else. That's just my 2 cents.
Absolutely agree. Children these days (and parents) are so wrapped up in their own things that family time will consist of the kids on their electronic devices and the parents on theirs, but all in the same room. Homework is essential for growing minds. Even though we homeschool, our kids still have 'homework'. It helps them stay focused. Nothing turns a kids brains to mush than senseless playing.

Right, YIA. Leisure is really the end goal here.

Also, homework gives families an opportunity to look into what the child is being taught and how he or she is being taught. From a parental engagement stance, that's important.

Homeschoolers, on the other hand, have plenty of "homework" and plenty of family time. Plus there's nothing to hide. And fathers, who are charged with bringing up their children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord (Eph 6), have the opportunity to do so without the antagonism of public school.

Great idea I think, but that is assuming kids actually will spend time with family and not on computer games.
