How do you think this would go over in the United States? French President François Hollande has said he will end homework as part of a series of reforms to overhaul the country’s education system. And the reason he wants to ban homework? He doesn’t think it is fair that some kids get help from their parents at home while children who come from disadvantaged families don’t. ***MARLAR: While he’s at it, he also plans to ban Mother’s Day and Father’s Day because some kids don’t have moms and dads, and he also plans to ban Halloween because some kids can’t afford costumes.
