Some primary schools in Nanjing, Jiangsu province are starting to implement No Homework Day policy to ease the burden on students. The primary schools' students will not receive homework for every Wednesday. A series of activities including reading, doing outdoors activities and helping parents with housework are encouraged on the No Homework Day.|
A report shows that on average, Chinese students spend three hours every day doing homework, twice as much as the global average, three times the amount in France, four times that in Japan and six times that in South Korea. Can the No Homework policy help ease students' burden?
