Students will be happy that Italy’s Minister of Education, Marco Bussetti, announced a circular to give kids less homework and more family time. Indeed, he hopes to make teachers sensitive to the fact that students should spend more time with family in this way.
Family time is important
In this time when the family has lost its moral value of support, this circular intervenes in its favor. Minister Bussetti announced a circular with the will: “I would like to sensitize the teachers, the children must stay with their families.”
According to the parliamentarian, during the summer holidays, children should relax and be with family. Bussetti says: “Three months of summer vacation without tasks is not too many.”
The Minister of Education reiterated that this circular concerns the Christmas holidays. Holidays are meant for rest and family. So much homework during the holidays is thoughtless and does not allow unity.
The freest parents
There is an Enjoy Tasks movement headed by Genoa Maurizio Parodi, who would like to eliminate homework completely. Homework is considered a useless and harmful practice, and a petition with more than 30,000 signatures is being prepared.
For Christmas, however, almost everyone agrees, the break away from school is not much. School tasks can be avoided. The family counts more than any other teaching over the holidays. Once a year, it is possible to put aside school and allow young people and adults to enjoy the exciting and festive climate.
The experiences of grandparents and parents, the joy of brothers and younger relatives and sincere love are worth more than any teaching sometimes. In this way we reach maturity, with the awareness of not being alone and with respect for traditions.
