President Duterte has signed executive order mandating all Educational Institution to prohibit teachers from giving students of all levels an assignment.
The draft finalized by the Presidential Legal Counsel on Thursday night.
According to President Duterte, this law will give the students their well deserved rest after they spend the whole week focusing on their studies. Giving the students more energy and willingness to study during weekdays.
`The students wake up every morning to spend the rest of the day studying. They only have a few hours to live their life as a teen, kids, and pre adults. We should not take these hours of freedom from them in the form of giving take home assignments everyday.
Professors and Teachers who will be reported giving assignments and home works upon implementation are expected to face fine of 50 000 and 1 to 2 years in jail.
