Dear Readers,

Please check out our new Opinion Poll on whether students should be punished or not, and cast your vote by the end of October 2017. As you know …

your opinion counts

Our September 2017 poll was about whether students should get homework during the holidays:

Should schools give homework during vacations?

Yes. To be promoted to the next grade students need to recall what they have been taught the previous year. Vacation homework is a refresher which prevents teachers from re-teaching basic skills. (26% 11 Votes)

No. The whole point of vacation is to relax and de-stress. Also, if students are going away for vacation, expecting them to carry their books with them is unreasonable. (74% 32 Votes)

The majority (74%) of respondents of this Opinion Poll believe that schools should not give homework during vacations. This is because they believe vacation is a time to relax and take a break from academics. A little over a quarter (26%) of the respondents believe that children should be given homework during vacations because it acts as a refresher and teachers don’t have to re-teach content in the new academic year.
