Solon wants teachers to be spared of excessive reports, homework, too

Solon wants teachers to be spared of excessive reports, homework, too 

This was the viewpoint of Basilan Rep. Mujiv Hataman in response to the no-homework policy from kindergarten to high school proposals filed in Congress.

Secretary Leoner Briones earlier said she backs the proposed no homework policy for students and (DepEd) will issue a directive regulating the giving of homework to students during weekdays ahead of the passage of a law but Hataman said the DepEd should first address the hill of clerical work and reports that teachers take home.

The secretary said the directive will contain guidelines including the number of homework that will be assigned, the subjects to be included and the students who will be covered by the policy.

“Siguro ito din dapat ang repasuhin: kung tama ba ang dami ng reports na pinapagawa sa kanila. Tingnan kung sagabal na ang mga ito sa pagtuturo. How can teachers teach when a great deal of their time is devoted to preparing too many reports too often?” the Deputy Speaker said.

While reports and other paperwork may be necessary, the former ARMM governor said these extra works that burden teachers could be streamlined.

“Tandaan din natin na ang mga guro ang main workforce sa mga community activities. Sa mga piyesta at lahat ng holiday celebration, sila ang inaasahan. At ito ay unpaid work, for the love of community na lang,” he added.
