DepEd Memorandum No 392: No Homework During Weekends

It is going to be TGIF (Thank God it’s Friday) for public elementary students as the Department of Education (DepEd) has issued a DepEd Memorandum No. 392 prohibiting teachers from giving their students homework during weekends to be able to have a quality time and bonding moments with their families.

“No homework/assignments shall be given during weekends [so] pupils can enjoy their childhood and spend quality time with their parents without being burdened by the thought of doing homework,” said Education Secretary Armin Luistro in his memo.

“The DepEd has good intentions for the memo … But teachers know what kind of assignments to give students—those that they can do on their own. Homework is not intended to burden children,” said TDC spokesperson Emma Policarpio.
