I think most teachers of kids would gladly do away with homework but are under pressure to meet certain “goals.” Since you are able to be involved in your child’s education (which is something to be very grateful for- I’m sure you are) I think you could certainly try to talk the teacher and find a “suitable” substitute for the assigned homework.
