Poland enforces no homework laws for grades 1-8 and soon high school


WARSAW, POLAND – Through the many changes in the education system around the world, Poland has recently enforced new mandatory laws including no homework for grades 1-8 starting in April. 

These laws are already ready to go into effect and soon will be applied in every school across Poland. As the Prime Minister Donald Tusk says, “This is a general problem of Polish schools, that children’s rights are violated. Assignments for the weekend, tests for Monday.”  

Poland’s government also hopes to implement these changes for high school in the future, but for now they have no homework for winter break. These changes will have a huge impact on how the schools will function, they will assign more work during school hours and students will be expected to stay on task throughout the whole day.  

Looking at countries such as Finland, they also have these no homework policies but are known to be one of the best education systems in the world. But as more and more countries implement this change, it leaves many to wonder whether they will succeed and stand out by making an example for the rest of the world.

About the Contributor
Julian Trzesniowski
Class of 2027 Student Journalist
Julian Trzesniowski is a journalist, a part of the student publications here at JCS. He moved here to the US from Poland 6 years ago and from then has been at work persuing a better education than he could have ever gotten back home. Living in Poland, he experienced the good and the bad of the community, and seeing how people can end up if they choose to go down the wrong path, he became aware of his friends and the ways they could lead him. Moving from Warsaw, Poland was very difficult for Julian, as he knew little to no English and was used to the culture that he was surrounded with in Europe. Seeking to fit into this community, he has been drawn closer to God through the many great teachers and staff at here at JCS. But as years passed, he began to miss what life was like back home, not knowing the reason why this change was for the better of his future. Over time, he saw all the great opportunities he had ahead of him and became grateful for what his parents had done for him. He then became known to this culture and soon grew into the great journalist he is today.
