Zhang Fan's parents, alias Zhang Fan, pointed out to the Global Network reporter, "I don't want to tutor the child to do his homework, especially to help him check whether there is a mistake. Let the teacher correct it if there is a mistake. Why should we check it for him? I'm curious about what the teacher wants to do."
According to the Ministry of Education, in response to the proposal, elementary school teachers use mobile phone Wechat and QQ to assign and submit homework to students and parents, and local education administrations have also made clear provisions. For example, the Zhejiang Provincial Department of Education issued Guidelines on Improving and Strengthening the Management of Schools and Primary Schools, which stipulated that homework beyond students'abilities should not be assigned, that homework requiring parents to complete or require parents to work on their behalf should not be assigned, that parents should not be required to correct homework assigned by teachers or children's homework errors, and that parents should not be required to download and print homework through the Internet.
The Ministry of Education of Shandong Province issued the "Implementation Plan of Special Action for Effectively Reducing the Extracurricular Burden of Primary and Secondary School Students" to strictly control the amount of students'homework. In the first and second grades of primary schools, no written homework is arranged, the contents of homework are designed scientifically, the layered homework is advocated, and no mechanical repetitive and rote-memorized homework is arranged. Homework corrections must be completed by teachers and parents should not be allowed to correct homework.
"Parents and children can do homework together, but if they help their children every day, many parents will help them do too much, which will lead to the loss of their children's ability to behave," Li Ting, a pseudonym, told Global Network.
