President Higgins is not in favour of homework for school children

The headlines said that President Michael D Higgins wanted a “ban” on school homework. He wasn’t quite that dogmatic – but he did make a suggestion that time at school “should get finished at school”; and when pupils come home, they should be “able to use their time for other creative things”.

He certainly indicated that he disfavoured homework for schoolchildren (in an interview for RTÉ children’s programme news2day).
