UAE schools can­cel home­work

Antelope Valley Press - - SECOND FRONT -

DUBAI, United Arab Emi­rates — Stu­dents at more than 250 govern­ment-run schools in the United Arab Emi­rates are of­fi­cially done with home­work.

The lo­cal Na­tional news­pa­per re­ports that, start­ing next week, the Ed­u­ca­tion Min­istry is abol­ish­ing home­work in pub­lic schools in the emi­rates of Dubai and Abu Dhabi to help stu­dents make the most of their time in school and have more time for other ac­tiv­i­ties and their fam­i­lies af­ter school.

Other coun­tries, like Fin­land, have had suc­cess with less home­work, which pro­po­nents ar­gue al­lows chil­dren more time to think cre­atively and play out­doors.
