Stupid move. Poland to abolish homework for school.

Sharing is Caring!

Compulsory, graded homework will be abolished in Poland’s primary schools from April, education minister Barbara Nowacka has announced, fulfilling a pre-election election promise by her party. She hopes that in future secondary school pupils will also no longer receive homework.

Nowacka, who took office last month as part of the new government led by Donald Tusk, also reiterated earlier pledges to slim down the curriculum and focus more on “critical thinking, not learning everything by heart”, as well as to reduce the number of Catholic catechism classes and increase teachers’ pay.

The pledge to abolish homework in primary schools was included in the 100 promises announced by Tusk last September ahead of elections and was then included in the coalition agreement his Civic Coalition (KO) signed with two other groups in November, paving the way for them to form a new government.

In an interview today with news website Wirtualna Polska, Nowacka, who is from KO, confirmed that the plans are moving ahead.
