Maharashtra may do away with homework in schools: Education Minister



School Education Minister Deepak Kesarkar has said that the state government is contemplating a proposal to do away with homework for all school-going children in the state.

“Let us not overburden children. It is important to ensure development of their brain. Additionally, the government also feels that homework should not be an easy escape for teachers. Instead, a teacher should teach in the class with such focus that students should not need to do homework,” emphasised Kesarkar.

The proposal is in its initial stages and the minister will hold discussions with teachers’ associations to draft a final plan on the implementation of such an order.
