Thick kids rejoice: Scottish school bans homework

by | 7th, November 2016

One in the eye for parents tired of Other Parents boasting of their kids’ top marks in spelling and sums. Pupils at Inverlochy Primary School in Fort William, Scotland, don’t get any homework. In a poll, most parents voted against it. Instead of homework, the children are told to read anything.

In all, 62% of parents (the ones with the less bright kids?) at the 193-pupil Highland school voted to stop homework; 79% of pupils (the sane and those with no interest in passing 11-plus exams?) voted to ban homework. The 10 teachers were unable to reach an consensus and split the vote 50/50.

Of course it matters not a jot. The tiger / pushy / middle-class / anxious / immigrant parents will make their children work at home whatever the school says. Some will hire tutors.
