Danielle Lloyd Divides As She Says Most Homework Should Be Banned
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."
#GMB homework shouldn't be banned it's far more useful than sitting on XBox or PlayStation for hours on end imo . It's about learning behaviours

#GMB homework shouldn't be banned... its to show your capability and understanding of particular subjects on your own. nobody is going to guide you during exams. however I don't think kids should be fearful of returning incomplete homework because they didn't understand a topic

My primary school didn't do homework and then when I got to high school my dig ate it every week. If you don't have homework early then it sets you up for absolutely nothing #GMB

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."
@GMB I personally think they get far too much homework. Keep school work to school time and allow them to be kids on the weekend! The summer holidays I think the odd bit is fine as they are off for so long but some kids don't get a break from it #GMB #homework

#GMB The amount of homework my 6+7 year old bring home is nuts, they seem to have more than my 15yo.... It's stressful for them and not needed, we do reading with them everynight anyway.
