No Homework shall be given During Weekends

DepEd Memorandum 392 S.2010

Guidelines on Giving Homework or Assignment to All Public Elementary Schools Pupils


1. Homework or assignment have been part of the pupils lives in their schooling. Common homework/assignment may include a period of reading to be done and writing to be completed, problems to be solved and projects to be worked on among others. The purpose of which is for the pupils to increase their knowledge and improve their abilities and skills.

2. However, it has been observed that parents complain about too many pupils homework or assignment which rob themselves and their children quality time to be together in more enjoyable activities.

3. Hence it is advised that the teachers limit the giving of homework to reasonable quantity to give their ample time to rest and relax at home for the rest of the day.

4. Therefore no homework or assignment shall be given during weekends for pupils to enjoy their childhood and spend quality time with their parents without being burdened by the though of doing lots of homework.

Are you out of your minds???

Just watched the news on TV. The memorandum is somehow "moronic" (forgive the term) for DepEd to implement it.

Parent should not complain but instead find ways to make homework answering a quality time for both.

No homework shall be given TO TEACHERS during weekends.....Sa departamento kasi natin kung sino pa principal at master teachers....sila iyung mahina ang ulo..d makaintindi ng simpleng memo...si MT naman nuno ng katamaran walang inabangan kundi sweldo...kaya sa issue na ito d lang bata ang dapat mag-enjoy during weekends...higit kaninuman sa eskwelahan...guro ang may karapatan jan! Hindi naman po ako napagod sa SBM reports...nakikisimpatya lang sa mga gurong gumagawa n dapat sana ay school heads....

I've been teaching English for almost four years now. My students know that I don't give homework on weekends, except when it's really necessary for them to accomplish one.

I make it clear that they have to read a book, either fiction or non-fiction during the two days of freedom from school.

Doing homework is important in developing study habits. Some students relish doing their homework, as I did when I was a student. It's not something we can do without.

I made up my "No homework on weekends" policy three years ago when I noticed how students struggle with the other tasks dumped on them in other subject areas.

I didn't expect that DepEd would come up with a memorandum implementing zero homework on weekends.

I may want to lighten up the students' tasks, but I don't want ALL homework to be banished from their weekends. Let's not spoil them that much.

paurong ang sistema! other countrie were teaching their pupils on how to do robots, on how to make computers.... but us, assignments lang???!!!! we're robbing the child's day of rest?????!!!! no wonder we have poor quality of education. Pupils are not hardworking anymore, no sense of study habits... we must teach them hardwork! at a very young age, they must learn hardwork... to be competitive... to be fighters... matibay sa hirap... hindi malambot sa kakaunting homework!

How can we teach them hardwork if they theories. How can you teach computer if the topic is 5 year behind.

CRAP!

dahil lang nagrereklamo ang mga magulang??? para sa ikabubuti naman yan ng mga bata. alam naman nating lahat na hindi ganun kataas ang antas ng pag aaral satin.. lalo sa public.. imagine a teacher for more or less 70 students without the help of homework during the weekends..

unang una.. kawawa ang teacher... hirap na magturo sa dami, hirap pa lalo mag turo kasi no homeworks to keep the students on tract sa lessons nila. at sa huli pag bumagsak ang student, teachers ang masisisi.

pangalawa... kawawa ang students; pag dating sa college mas macculture shock sila. puro laro inaatupag ng elem - hs sila, tapos hindi na nila alam pano i-manage ang time nila kasi nga nawalan na ng disiplina sa pag aaral.

pangatlo... kawawang pilipinas.. panobagong batikos na naman sa ibang bansa...

There is a concern with the improper placement of personnel in the selection of Education Program Supervisor 1 in the Department of Education in the Division of Siquijor. It has been observed that some of the personnel placed on the said position are not those who are qualified for the Subject Area of Specialization. Example, a vacant position for Education Program Supervisor 1 in English Subject is given to a personnel who’s Subject Area of Specialization is Home Economics even if there is another personnel who is more qualified and who’s major subject in her BEED/BSED, Master’s and Doctorate Degree is English. It is unfair for those qualified who are applying for the vacant position.
Just like the case of my friend. Let’s call her Dr. Myrna Quisumbing (not her real name). She applied for Education Program Supervisor 1 in Social Studies. Her Major in BEED Degree, Master’s Degree and Doctorate Degree is Social Studies. Together with her, a Division Nurse also applied for the same position. During ranking, the Division Nurse tops the list. How come that a Division Nurse is more qualified when that is not her Area of Specialization and doesn’t even hold Master’s Degree and Doctorate Degree in Social Studies? How can she carry her duties and responsibilities when based on her credentials, she doesn’t fully carry the qualifications for the said vacant position?
The position Title: Education Program Supervisor 1 must follow the Subject Area of Specialization. For those higher officials who choose the personnel for that vacant position, choose the one who is academically qualified and not those who are close to your hearts or those that are your friends. Please be fair.
As the Bible says, “Give to Caesar what belongs to Caesar.” (Luke 20:25).
To Education Secretary Bro. Armin Luistro and to our President Benigno Aquino III, please help the qualified and deserving public teachers/principals not only in the Division of Siquijor but in the entire Philippine Nation stand up for their rights. Hoping that their sacrifices, time, money and efforts to finish their Master’s Degree and Doctorate Degree in their field of specializations will not be in vain and useless.
Thank you for taking your immediate action for this concern. God bless and more power!

No Homework!? those the deped really think about it helpful having no assignment? Where those this speculation come from? An idea being made to think earnestly or not? We are not questioning the idea of the new deped secretary but think of it if it could help a lot of the pupils. They must not suppose to concentrate on what those it take for a child what need to do during week end. What they must need to concentrate on is on how those the child will learn during weekend? Study habit is already lost that is why we have this very low performer child in school and then teachers are being blamed that they are not teaching well. In be half of teachers in public, they are very eager to teach these children but the mere fact is educational equipment like books or reference are not available, well if it is available it is already obsolete. Deped secretary must do something on how to improve the study habit of this children do not focus in not giving assignment during week end. It will not help... You are just making and developing students with poor study habit... We need to develop a new program that will fit the mind set of this new generation. Let us use this technologies, there are lots of it technologies that will be the source of information not destruction to our children's future.

Compensation, salary, bonuses, clothing allowance, productivity and financial matters, are always delayed in Rizal Province... Hey wake up Deped Rizal. It is a shameful thing that you can not send on time those financial assistance of teachers in that particular place. A lot of teachers experiencing late monthly compensation through ATM, bonus, clothing allowance and others. It was in the year 2010 summer that clothing allowance must be send to all teachers nation wide but why only in Division of Rizal haven't received their clothing allowance why? And another thing why is it they always experienced a delayed monthly salary, haven't you forgot the Labor code? be reminded that if an employee will not received its compensation on or before the 15th of the month or the 39th can sued you or file a case against you. If the employer pays salary once a month they must pay all their employees 2 days before the said date, later than that is charge to a case. An employee has the right to file a case. Wake-up Deped Rizal!!!

I think the DepED is allowing assignment on the regular school days and not on the weekend. I think that is fair. Fortunately, there are many topics to discuss that is why teacher want the mastery to happen in the house.

How come Elem lang? How about high school? We can't enjoy weekends dahil sa gabundok na HW and projects. Unfair much. Kailangan din namin ng bonding with our parents. Actually, kaming mga teenagers yung may kailangan ng bonding with parents ehh. Tinatambakan na nga ng homework ng weekdays tatambakan pa sa weekends. Paano pa namin makakabonding parents namen? Kaya may mga highschool na nawawala sa tamang landas ehh. Hindi nagkakaroon ng bonding with parents. Pssh! Ang elem konti konti lng ng homework eh. Kahit bigyan mo ng homework on weekends sandali lang nila magagawa ehh. Kamusta kaming highschool? Sometimes the whole weekend is just for school stuffs. Wala ng rest. Bat pa kaya tinawag na weekend rest yun kung may pinapagawa? tssk! Unfair much! DepEd naman! Bat di ayusin! Hindi lang yung elem ang nangangailangan ng time with parents. Pati din kaming highschool.
I hate weekend activities!
DAPAT PATI SATURAY CLASSES IPAGBAWAL!

"No homeworks shall be given during weekends". . .this has to be practiced in a mediocre way and not on extreme ways na walang-wala naman in a span of one-month or extreme naman na every weekends naman ay gabundok naman ang ibibigay.

Sad to say about this, I have observed that this weekend assignments were sometimes used as a means to fill-in yung kulang ng teacher sa pagtuturo niya during the week kesyo busy siya and maraming ginagawa (nagru-rush ng lesson plan! sa loob ng classroom). I have even encountered homework of my kid na hindi pa naituturo ay ginawang assignment or homework na ng bata which is a very obvious na band-aid solution ng ibang teacher sa kanilang inefficiency. Dapat ang homework ay Drill Enhancers para sa mga bata or students in connection sa mga natutunan nila during the week at hindi dapat maging filler ng mga katamaran ng mga teachers...nakuuuu marami na akong na-encounter na ganito ang gawain na mga teachers...tuloy yung parents na ang 80% na nage-explain sa anak niya regarding sa lesson at tuloy wala ng kahiraphirap yung teacher sa lesson....WISE ANO? Ngrrrrrrrrrr...yung parent ang naging Main teacher na tuloy at yung teacher ay naging supporting na lang....nakakainis!!!!

Walang problema sa pagbibigay ng homework kada weekends pero ano yung "Contents" ng ibinibigay na homework which is ito ang dapat kontrolin, kc sometimes ABUSO talaga yung ibinibigay para gawin ng mga bata....

wth! and Philippines will be full of monkey crap

we should not stuff children with assignments or home work during weekends. During exam times its acceptable. assignment help offers online tutoring services where in which children's may find it easy and interesting.http://www.assignmenthelp.net

i really disagree of the DepEd proposal sapagkat ang pagbibigay ng homework sa mga bata ay malaking tulong for improvement of their learning.

asko lang anaaccept din ba ng deped ang req. ng batang galing sa private school pero ang school na pinanggalingan ay hindi pala accedited ng department of education or wala siyang lisensya galing deped.

..why bother to issue this "no homework policy during weekend?"..when the fact is there are more important issues and concern to resolve..such as lack of classrooms..shortage of teachers..lack of textbooks and many more "real" problems..pwede ba gumawa naman kayo ng trabahong kapakipakinabang at makabuluhan..kami sa field ang napapahiya sa pag implement ng mga orders galing sa itaas na walang "sense" at walang naidudulot na maganda..

All of you are thinking like adults...if your a student like me, you will choose to agree on this, right?? yes,assignments are important but when its Friday,,the teachers give to many assignments for the students to handle.using this memorandum,the students are able to relax and enjoy because during the weekdays, the students can't relax at all because of all the assignments that are given to us,worrying about quizzes and stuff like that..

well that's just my opinion if you have other opinion,well thats yours.but for me,, it is a better idea to "ipatupad" this rule..hehe

Anonymous student,

Your post is a testament. A testament that this idea is crap. Your grammar is very poor. You should study harder. Learn the difference between it's and its, your and you're, to and too.

Oh, ipatupad in english is to enforce.

anong klaseng panukala naman yan. tinuturuan lng lalomg maging tamad mga bata nyan. yang mga parents n ngrereklamo mga tamad. tamad mgturo s mga anak kya reklamo ng reklamo pg mrming assignments. bkit noon wlang gnyan. parents of today sobrang o.a.kya mga bata noon mggling kc full support both parents and teachers s pg aaral nila. ngaun puro blame s teacher pg ngflunk bata. ano b gnwa ng parents s bhy? gngawa b nila mga assignments at projects mga bata. ngaun mga parents p nkikipgbaragain s mga teachers if their children did not finish the assigned task for them...

to anonymous student,
o ayan!!! ayaw nyo mg assignment. ayw nyo mahasa english skills nyo/ other skills nyo. tignan mo simple english construction d mo mgwa, tas ayw mo mg assignment. mgbabad k n lng s netshop para mahasa daliri mo...jan mgling mga bata ngaun...pumindot ng pumindot...

>>cguro tama ang idea ng DEped in a way na gusto nilang ma-eliminate ang mga teachers na "terror" at medyo tumanda na sa kalokohan ng students in ELEM na sobra tamad mag-aral. BUT not all teachers are like THAT.
>>same as through in High School; yes, in greater amounts may teacher talaga na super daming magbigay ng takdang aralin.
cguro kaya lang maraming tao ang mag-react dahil sa NO HOMEWORK SHALL BE GIVEN; well in fact it Will happen only in fantasy.
I hope na pati ren sa HS i-implement ang rule na ito with "LESS ASSIGNMENTS TO BE GIVEN"
; dahil Nakaka-stress talaga ito lalo na sa mga COMPREHENSIVE & SCIENCE CLASS Curricula gaya namen.

good! dapat totally free sa assignment ang mga bata...kaya hindi natuto ang estudyante dahil hindi tama yung strategy ng teacher,,,kasalanan ng teacher kung bakit hindi natuto ang estudyante hindi ng assignment..wla sa assignment ang ikatuto ng estudyante...

hello iba iba po tayo ng learning style assignments may not be effective for learning...the students will likely to hate schooling because of so many assignments

Sa palagay ko tama lng na ipatupad ung No Assignment Policy Kasi as a student mahirap magbalance ng time between studies tsaka family.
Madami ngang teachers ang ayaw dito, e kung sila kaya ang nasa posisyon naming mga studyante na mahigit 12 ang subjects na under sa science curriculum. bawat subject may assignment, project, quiz araw araw .wla ba kaming karapatan magreklamo kung ganun ang pamamalakad nila?? e sila nagfo-focus lng sa isang subject na major sila. eh kaming kayang mga students, kamusta nlng kaya un noh!!
Kaya sa mga teachers , d naman sa d kami gumagal ng .. sinasabi lng namin ung opinion namin as student wherein di nyo nararamdaman.
