We need to ban homework in elementary

This petition had 113 supporters

It's forcing students to go home after a stressful day of school and activities and do pointless homework. Teachers should be teaching these things in class, not making the students learn it themselves. It's preventing children from leading balanced lifestyles, with a healthy amount of sleep and activities to keep them fit and active. How is a student supposed to do 3 to 4 hours of homework, study for a large amount of tests and quizzes, play sports, get involved in the community, eat food with nutritional value, and get a fair amount of sleep, all in one day? That's not possible. The amount of stress homework causes kids is ridiculous, especially when they're already under so much pressure to get into a good college and do well in school, along with making friends and staying active. Homework is not necessary.

Teachers grade these assignment and most of the time it doesn’t even show how well a student understands a concept. Homework can be an improper tool to test a student’s abilities.  Homework should be banned at the elementary school level across the United States.
