Danielle Lloyd Divides As She Says Most Homework Should Be Banned

Danielle Lloyd has sparked controversy among Good Morning Britain viewers by claiming most homework should be banned for children.

The mum-of-four argued that her children have too much homework from school, and it's all pointless anyway as she ends up doing it for them.

She questioned: "What's the point?" before going on to add: "My kids come home with so much homework at such a young age. I think they should just be allowed to be kids.

"In the schools, the teachers should do their jobs and when the kids should come home and enjoy themselves and be happy.

"What's the point in coming home with all these exercises? I agree about maybe doing a little bit of spelling or maths, but these projects about history..."

The former model continued: "They come home with loads of maths and history homework and projects. I'm the one who gets left to make these models.

"When they come home and do history and stuff, I just don't think it's really relevant."

Meanwhile, 'Britain's strictest headteacher' Katherine Birbalsingh countered Danielle's argument, saying: "It is absolutely the case that schools need to set homework that is practice of what has been done at school."

Danielle's views that homework should be scrapped divided those watching Thursday's Good Morning Britain, with many flocking to Twitter to share their thoughts.

"Parents doing their child's homework? Just another example of children being raised with no sense of personal responsibility. Let them do it, let them make mistakes. Then teachers know where the child needs help," offered one.

While somebody else added: "Wtf? Kids need homework. End of. I'd be p*ssed if my kids weren't getting homework."

Whereas others agreed with Danielle that homework should be scrapped so 'kids can be kids'.

"Oh fudge off and let kids have lives. I never did homework till I was 11," shared one person.

And another tweeted: "Agree with Danielle Lloyd. Homework should be minimum...reading....spelling...X tables. However.. If child behind their peers, it may be a different matter."

Good Morning Britain continues on ITV at 6.30am on weekdays.
