Many people now think that teacher given pupils too much homework .They say that it is unnecessary for
children to work at home in their free time. Moreover they argue that most teachers do not properly plan the
homework tasks they given to pupils. The result is that pupils have to repeat tasks which they given have
already done at school .Recently Greece many parent said that most of the homework was a waste of
time , and they wanted to stop it .Spain and Turkey are two countries which stopped homework recently .In
Denmark ,Germany and several other countries in urope ,teacher cannot set homework at weekends In
!olland, teacher allow pupils to stay at school to do their homework .The children are free to help one
another .Similar arrangements also e"it in some #ritish schools.
