Despite a ban on homework in primary schools in France, many students are assigned work to complete at home, and older students report about one hour of homework each school night. Now, however, a group of parents and teachers are calling for a two-week boycott of homework in protest of the practise, which they say is ineffective and unfair to students whose parents are unable to help them. Protesters say students can still receive assignments, but they should be completed at school.
