Tough Call: One high school in Germany has banned homework to allow kids to 'unwind'

Today's Tough Call: One high school in Germany has banned homework, and here's why.

Germany has done away with one year of high school, meaning students now spend longer days in the classroom...sometimes until 6:00pm to complete the required work. So they're doing away with homework as a test, to give kids a chance to unwind a bit.

We want to hear from you: Is this a good idea?

    i really dont know if this is a great idea or not umm yes students shouldnt get a lot of HW but keeping them in school for a long time can hurt them as well
