Petition We ask the schools to stop or limit online homework and to revert to textbooks.

Parents are urged to limit their children’s exposure to screens at home, due to the known risks to their mental health. However, homework tasks are often set via online platforms.

More details

The Island is small enough to act fast and turn the tide.
Screens have been recognised to be at the root of much of our children’s mental health issues.
The Swedes have returned to textbooks as they have seen their children’s literacy fall over the time they have introduced iPads in schools.
Our children deserve to be tought how to write (letter forming) and spell properly.
Our children’s mental health must be preserved.
So please consider reverting to textbooks, pens and paper.
