Inspiration from Australia

The president of the Tasmanian State School Parents and Friends in Australia (an independent community based organization formed in 1947 to represent the parents of children participating in state school education within Tasmania) has started a campaign to stop teachers from assigning homework in elementary and high schools. According to an article in, she said, “I really want someone to show me homework is beneficial. If it is not, I don’t think we should be having it. I don’t want to see kids coming home and doing useless homework. I want them outside playing. There are quite a few reports out there saying it might not be beneficial – so why are we doing it?”
