French president pushing homework ban as part of ed reforms

He doesn’t think it is fair that some kids get help from their parents at home while children who come from disadvantaged families don’t. It’s an issue that goes well beyond France, and has been part of the reason that some Americans oppose homework too.


“Education is priority,” Hollande was quoted as saying by France24.com at Paris’s Sorbonne University last week. “An education program is, by definition, a societal program. Work should be done at school, rather than at home,” as a way to ensure that students who have no help at home are not disadvantaged.

.....

It’s not clear where the money to hire thousands more teachers will come from, but, the Associated Press reported, Education Minister Vincent Peillon will have to figure out how to implement the reforms.

Simply raise taxes on 'the rich' to get the money to pay for all the new teachers required.

Money is never a problem to a socialist. After all, France only has horrendous deficits that won't get reduced, growing debt, and businesses fleeing the country in droves.

Fairness in education. Why didn't Barack think of this? or Michelle?
