President Rodrigo Duterte has signed an executive order mandating all Educational Institution to prohibit teachers from giving students of all levels assignment.
The draft was finalized by the Presidential Legal Counsel on Thursday night.
According to the president, the law will give the students their well-deserved rest after spending the whole week focusing on their studies. Thus giving students more energy and willingness to study during weekdays.
“The students wake up every morning, to spend the rest of the day studying. They only have a few hours to live their life as a kid, teen, and pre-adults. We should not take these hours of freedom away from them in the form of giving take-home assignments everyday. These kids don’t even have time to process the information given to them.”
Teachers and Professors who will be reported for giving homeworks and assignments upon implementation are expected to face a fine of 50,000 and 1-2 years jail time.
