TRC Website Opinion Poll October 2017

Category: TRC News

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)

Result:
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.
