Recent studies show that Australian parents spend less time helping their kids with homework than the global average.
But is this necessarily a bad thing?
The average Australian parents are dedicating 4.4 hours a week to homework help…
Which is a figure that shouldn’t be scoffed at.
But it does pale in comparison to the commitment hours of other countries…
With the average hours hovering around the 6.7 a week mark.
Federal Minister for Education Simon Birmingham has appealed to parents to do more to address Australian students performance in maths, literacy and science assessments.
But is helping with homework really the key?
