The problems of homework

Why do I think Homework should no longer be allowed? I would like to get rid of homework. Personally, I think it is pointless. Now, I know that we may not have time to cover everything in class and that it reviews what we learned that day, but sometimes we still don't understand. We try to get ahold of the teacher, but they aren't available. And our parents were taught differently and might not have been taught what we are now. Also, we get less time to spend with family. Another thing is that homework creates stress. We must take it home with us, keep it away from all that are liable to destroy it, and not lose it in the process. How's that for hard? Especially when you go home to many younger siblings. Studies show that many Intellectually Advanced children have failed only because of homework. If homework were removed, everyone would be much happier. For example, You would see children playing outside like they do in the summer. If homework hadn't been made, we might actually enjoy school. You can ask the 43% of parents who do the homework for their kids. So please, remove homework and take this heavy, heavy weight off of our young shoulders.
