Stop giving children in National schools homework
Giving children in National schools homework creates extra unnecessary stress for families already stretched beyond limits in all areas of life. Home time could instead be time for rest, play and creativity for children and young people , many of whom are already suffering from stress and anxiety The pressure of homework can also lead to absenteeism from school and other issues with self esteem and anxiety.
Why is this important?
The pressure of home work can effect children's mental health and well being and that of their parents. If you agree please join me in this petition.
