Homework may get banned in a Swedish city
June 17 , 2014
Most kids would want to move to this Swedish city where homework may get banned. Reports suggest that the idea behind the move is that children should be taught and made to grasp everything during their time at school and the board will see if Hallstahammar could actually become the first municipality without homework in the country.
"If this proposal is passed, I will take the initiative to change school laws so that cities will not be able to butt in and affect this kind of pedagogical decision," the education minister who is against the idea said.
