Homework could be illegal!

Homework could be illegal!
The Schoolchildren's Rights Spokesman has just launched a battle against setting work to do aty home. A special report on the matter is being directed to the Civil Rights Ombudsman and Poland's Education Ministry. Schoolchildren's spokesman Krzysztof Olędzki says that the office has been inundated with complaints from parents, objecting that their children come home from school and almost immediately sit down to more study. The spokesman has concluded that homework is not legal, because school has no right to decide on what children do at home; moreover homework is a restriction of freedom and the right to rest, as provided by the Constitution of Childrens' Rights. Many children devote long hours, seven times a week, to study, says the spokesman, who has asked the Civil Rights Ombudsman to investigate and will be meeting Education Minister Katarzyna Hall to discuss the matter.
