MANILA, Philippines — The Department of Education (DepEd) will soon release a “more precise” guideline on regulating the amount of homework given to students, Secretary Leonor Briones said Monday.

Briones stressed DepEd’s current guidelines state that no homework should be given on weekends, while teachers are advised to limit assignments during weekdays.

“The existing policy is no homework on weekends. But we are also encouraging our teachers to limit the homework during weekdays especially on particular subjects,” Briones said during a press conference.

“And we’re going to come out with additional guidelines, na magiging more precise ‘yung guidelines, on whatever homework teachers might impose during weekdays and on what subjects,” she added.

Briones earlier expressed support to the proposed no-homework policy from kindergarten to high school, saying it would help students achieve a school-life balance.

DepEd Undersecretary Diosdado San Antonio said researches state younger students should have lesser homework compared to older students and this will be indicated in the guidelines the agency will soon release.

“The strand is drafting a homework policy for DepEd. We will capture what the secretary has mentioned,” San Antonio said.

“The literature is saying that younger kids should have less and the kids in the higher grades like senior high school may be given more homework,” he added.

Several measures proposing a no-homework policy were filed at the House of Representatives and the Senate.

Deputy Speaker Evelina Escudero’s bill wants to eliminate homework and limit school activities to the campus while Quezon City Rep. Alfred Vargas’ bill wants to stop teachers from giving homework to students during the weekends. Senator Grace Poe has filed a similar bill to Vargas’. /jpv

INTRODUCTION

Homework or homework assignment has been an inevitable part of a pupils’ academic journey. An academic task that includes a period of reading, writing that has to be completed, textbook exercises to answer, Mathematics problems to be solved, some information to review for the previous or next lesson, and some activities to practice skills.

The primary purpose of giving a homework is to reinforce and increase pupils’ knowledge and improve their learning abilities. This will encourage pupils to engage in active learning. This also promotes a pupil-parent communication and collaboration between pupils.

 But many schools are rethinking homework, some have cut down on the amount they give each week, and others no longer allow weekend assignments. Some have eliminated homework entirely.

THE PHILIPPINES’ Suspension of Homework

In September 2010, a memorandum from the Department of education was circulated (and passed on to all the bureau directors, regional directors, school division/city superintendents and Heads of Public elementary school). The   Deped Memorandum No.392 S.2010 highlights the suspension of homework during the weekend. This is to address the concern of parents regarding the amount of time the pupils consume in accomplishing their homework, instead of having an enjoyable and quality time with their family. This memorandum also intends to ease the pupils’ burden about the thought of doing plenty of homework.

In August 2019, the 118 th Congress – Senate Bill No. 966 (authored by Senator Grace Poe) or the proposed “No Homework Law” has been filed. This is a senate bill banning teachers from giving homework to students from kinder to Grade 12 on weekends.

The bill stated that all primary and secondary schools in the country shall not allow teachers to give any network or assignments to students. Under the proposed measure, teachers may only assign homework to students on weekends provided that it be minimal and will not require more than four hours to be completed.  The policy will be applied on both public and private schools.

“Further, it looked at homework hours around the world and found that there wasn’t much of a connection between how much homework students of a particular country do and how well their students score on tests” , the bill read.

Citing a 2014 study from the OECD based on PISA data, the senator noted that additional time spent on homework has a negligible impact on the performance of students after around four hours of homework in a week.  In OECD countries, for example, advantaged students spend 5.7 hours per week doing homework, on average, while disadvantaged students spend an average of 4.1 hours per week.

No homework policy

The Department of Education (DepEd) expressed its support on this filed bill of “No homework policy” saying that it would help learners find balance between personal and academic growth. Since they had been advocating for an all-inclusive learning regime for Filipino students, to include out of the classroom schooling, a policy that will, in effect, restrict teachers from giving homework to students from kindergarten to Grade 12. In hopes that the concept will enable Filipino learners “to find balance between their academic development and personal growth by having ample time for enjoyable activities with family.”

Up to this date, the proposed bill is not yet approved. Apparently, there is need to be circumspect and judicious. The DepEd memorandum of 2010 is still the ruling guideline on giving homework to pupils.

Félicitations à Joreen d’évoquer un problème en émergence dans les pays africains. Au Cameroun où je passe la majorité de mes observations, le problème de” saturation des activités intellectuelle” gagne du terrain, encouragé par cette frénésie de faire avancer les enfants sans respecter le rythme bio-physiologique des enfants. Tenez par exemple, les congés c’est à partir du 10 juin au primaire. Immédiatement, les “saturalistes” ont déjà programmé des cours de rattrapage pour le mois de juillet. Quand est-ce que le cerveau de ces enfants va se reposer? Commençons à mener des réflexions dans ce sens. Châpeau Joreen/

Thanks! Actually I’ve been looking if it has been approved or not yet, then I saw you blog. I know the Finnish almost 100% do not give homework. As a math teacher, in my class, I started not giving them homework (years before the pandemic) even though the bill has not been passed yet.

Educators' expectations and understandings of parental involvement in our nation's schools are often disconnected from the reality of students' home lives. This qualitative study purports that educators often lose opportunities to more fully understand and serve students, particularly when perceptions of parental involvement and home-school-community relationships are not accurate or expansive enough to appreciate the nuances of different cultural, economic, or geographic circumstances. Parent (or caregiver) engagement, as we define it, encapsulates both parent voice and parent presence. Parent voice implies not only that parents have ideas and opinions about their children, but also that educators are receptive to this voice, allowing for an open, multidirectional flow of communication. Similarly, parent presence refers to actions related to the voices of caregivers. Based on a grounded theory model of qualitative research, we used a small, theoretically derived sample of parents involved with a local parent education program to further understand parent engagement, presenting detailed descriptions of conversations and writing done by participants through focus groups and interviews. From these data, new models of parent voice and presence emerged. These models act as precursors to a reconfigured and more comprehensive model of parent engagement. Crucial to the final model is an understanding of parent participation in children's lives that is fluid, robust, and specific to context and culture. The final model presented herein is a combination of parent voice and parent presence, whereby children's well being is central to the interactions. (Contains 3 figures and 3 endnotes.)

Self-regulated learning refers to the processes used by learners to systematically and actively attain their personal goals. As such, it involves an individual’s use of cognition, behavior, and affect to sustain this pursuit (Zimmerman & Schunk, 2011 ). Bandura’s ( 2012 ) social cognitive theory explains individual learning, development, acquisition of knowledge, and self-regulated competency within a social context, in which parents, peers, and teachers play a signifi cant role as social models. Social cognitive theory research has been of interest to educators, parents, and policymakers because of its explanatory power in understanding human development, its practicality, and its applicability to learning. A unique contribution of social cognitive theory is its emphasis on the triadic interaction between the person, behavior, and the environment. This triadic model accounts for how individuals are not dependent exclusively on the environment but are able to manipulate, react, and influence their environment. Personal factors such as cognition and affect also come into play.

Homework or assignment is widely known as an educational activity, which primary purpose is to help the students improve their performances however some studies showed that assignment has a negative impact on students’ social lives and more assignment increases stress level and physical problems. In the Philippines, a “No Homework Policy” during weekends for all student levels was issued by President Rodrigo R. Duterte. This study explores the possible effect of having and not having assignments on weekends on the transmuted mean scores and performance of high school students. The study was conducted at Central Mindanao University Laboratory High School (CMULHS), in Maramag, Bukidnon using two sections of Grade 11 students. The data was treated using the descriptive statistics. ANCOVA was used to determine if a significant difference exist. Result of the study reveals that class with assignments had a higher transmuted mean scores as compared to those without assignments. An increased performance from midterm to final term was noted in the with assignment group however, there is no significant difference in the performance of the students with and without assignments.

Parent involvement in and engagement with children's learning has been shown to strongly influence student achievement, engagement, motivation and school completion. However, parent involvement decreases once students reach middle school, as subject content gets harder, the number of teachers increases, and students are less likely to share their homework and learning with parents. To this end, the flipped learning approach has received growing attention, with evidence of improved higher order thinking and collaborative skills, and increased transparency for parents. This article explores school leader, parent, student and teacher perceptions of the flipped learning approach, through the lens of a one-year case study of two rural South Australian schools, in order to uncover how the approach affects parent engagement. Findings reveal that, whilst stakeholders feel that the flipped approach is beneficial for absent students, to reinforce content and increase student responsibility, it has not improved transparency for parents, with a disconnect between what schools think parents know and are engaging in, and the actual level of parent engagement in student learning. Recommendations for schools implementing the flipped learning approach are provided against a bioecological model, adapted for this study. Practitioner notes What is already known about this topic  Parents play a vital role in the learning journey of students, although less is known about their perceptions of flipped learning (FL) in schools.  FL has been gaining popularity, however far less research has been undertaken in schools. What this paper adds  Stakeholders feel that FL supports students who are absent or who require content reinforcement, increases students' sense of responsibility, centres parent-teacher conversations more on learning, and has the potential to increase student engagement.  Whilst teachers feel that FL increases transparency for parents, parents and students do not.  Misconceptions of parent engagement and knowledge of school processes can hinder FL efficacy. Implications for practice and/or policy  Schools should conduct a needs analysis and implement a whole school approach to parent engagement and implementing FL, with school leaders playing a key role.  Increased support of FL through funding of equipment and professional development, as well as less staffing changes.  Gaining support from governing council, and offering combined FL workshops for parents and teachers may increase transparency and strengthen links between home and school.

‘Bawal ang assignment’: No homework bills filed by lawmakers

Photo of Staff Report

Lawmakers have filed separate bills on a no-homework policy to prevent stress and burn-out among school children.

The two bills filed at the House of Representatives seek to ban homework activities from kindergarten to high school in order for kids to spend more quality time with their families.

Deputy Speaker Evelina Escudero introduced House Bill No. 3611 which seeks to eliminate homework as a class requirement and limit school activities to the campus.

“Homework assignments can deprive students and parents precious quality time for rest, relaxation and interaction after school hours and even on weekends,” she explained.

Escudero also included in her bill a provision to leave textbooks in school so that children don’t have to carry it back home.

House Bill 3883 by Quezon City Congressman Alfred Vargas, on the other hand, seeks to ban the homework policy during weekends.

“In addition, a few landmark studies have suggested that homework does impact upon family life, in some cases in a negative way… yet in general, it is positively associated with academic achievement,” Vargas wrote.

Teachers may face at least Php50,000 in fine or imprisonment for violations if the bill turns into law.

DepEd: No Homework or Assignments during weekends

DepEd Memo 392 mandates school teachers not to give assignments or any form of homework during weekends. This controversial memorandum has drawn flak from the public school educators.

Signed by Education Secretary Armin Luistro advised teachers to limit giving of homework and assignments. This is to give children the chance to have more quality time with their parents and loved ones. The can relax and rest at home for the rest of the weekends.

He added that children must not be burdened with the thought of doing lots of homework. They must enjoy their childhood.

This is contrary to the Teachers’ Dignity Coalition’s point of view. According to TDC’s president Benjo Basas, the memorandum is unnecessary. It actually violates the educators’ academic freedom to give the students the best education.

He said that as educators, they know the capacity of their students and how long it will take to finish their homework. It is to help them develop self-discipline and not make their lives harder. Students can learn time management and become responsible.

Furthermore, he said that teachers give more homework on Fridays because they have more free time during the weekends. Parents can even use homework to spend quality time with their kids. He explained that there are two main purposes for assignments: to review previews lessons or to get ready for a new one.

No homework or Assignments during weekends

Director of the DepEd Bureau of Elementary Education, Yolanda Quijano admitted that the memorandum was signed in after they have received complaints from a number of parents about teachers who were giving too much homework. It is a part of the initiative to make schools child-friendly.

She further added that they want kids to enjoy their time. Study time should be a habit and must not be strictly required during the weekends. Homework can bring opposite effect to the good education. Source

Department of Education issued Memorandum No. 392 which orders teachers not to give homeworks on Fridays for the students to have quality time with their families on weekends.

DepEd Secretary Armin Luistro justified the said memorandum as it will allow pupils to enjoy their weekends by playing with their friends and have bonding moments with their parents and other members of the family.

Do you still remember how our teachers give too much homeworks at the end of every week? Rationale: you have the rest of Saturday and Sunday to work on it. The result: lack of time to have enough quality rest off from school works.

Weekends are intended for relaxation, for longer hours of sleep or for keeping awake, for recreation, for anything you want to do other than your school or office tasks. Saturdays and Sundays are the days of the week where we try to find a life afar from books and documents, from stress and pressures.

Pupils should not be deprived of a happy childhood. But bonding moments can be done anytime, anywhere, right? Maybe what’s better is for teachers to give homeworks which are manageable for these kiddos. Those which they can finish in a short period of time without sacrificing the hours that could’ve been spent for rest or playtime.

It’s all about proper time management. Don’t you think? 🙂

DepEd: F2F classes in public schools on April 29-30 suspended

The Department of Education (DepEd) on Sunday announced the suspension of face-to-face classes in all public schools nationwide and a shift to distance learning on April 29 to 30 due to the extreme heat and the impending transport strike. In an advisory, DepEd said that teaching and non-teaching personnel in all public schools will also not be required to report to their respective stations during the said dates. The agency made the announcement in light of the latest forecast of state weather bureau PAGASA, showing that over 30 areas might experience a dangerous level of heat index ranging from 42 to 51°C on April 29. The three-day nationwide strike by PISTON from April 29 to May 1 in protest of the public utility vehicle modernization program (PUVMP) and the looming April 30 deadline for consolidation of jeepney franchises also became a factor for the in-person classes suspension in public schools. Private schools, on the other hand, were not covered by the advisory but have the option to follow suit, according to DepEd. Activities organized by regional and schools division offices, such as Regional Athletic Association Meets and other division or school level programs, that were set on April 29-30 may also push through given that measures for the safety of all participants were carefully considered. —RF, GMA Integrated News

DepEd’s MATATAG Agenda, BEDP 2030 approved by NEDA Board as National Policy and Plan for Basic Education

27 April 2024 – The National Economic Development Authority (NEDA) Board, chaired by President Ferdinand Marcos Jr., has approved the Department of Education’s MATATAG Agenda and the Basic Education Development Plan (2030) as the national policy and plan for basic education in the Philippines during its 15th Board meeting on Thursday, April 25.

“The [NEDA] board approves the adoption of the Basic Education Development Plan 2023 and MATATAG Agenda as a national policy and plan for basic education,” President Marcos said in the meeting.

Vice President and Secretary of DepEd Sara Z. Duterte on Thursday presented the details and accomplishments of the BEDP 2030 and MATATAG Agenda to the NEDA Board.

Anchored on the Ambisyon Natin 2040 and responsive to the commitments in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 2030, BEDP is the country’s first medium-term plan for basic education, covering formal K-to-12 education and non-formal education for youth and adults.

Meanwhile, the MATATAG Agenda, launched last January 2023, provides a roadmap of specific deliverables and commitments that DepEd aims to deliver by 2028.

MATATAG stands for (1) Make the curriculum relevant to produce competent, job-ready, active, and responsible citizens; (2) Take steps to accelerate the delivery of basic education facilities and services; (3) Take good care of learners by promoting learner well-being, inclusive education, and a positive learning environment; and (4) Give support to teachers to teach better.

“The BEDP and the MATATAG Agenda embody the major steps that we will be taking to improve the quality of basic education in the Philippines,” VP Duterte said.
