Tell Congress: Abolish the U.S. Department of Education

It's time to kick federal bureaucrats OUT of public classrooms...  

Messages Sent So Far

Members of Congress need to abolish the Department of Education and get the federal government out of our schools. 

Sign the petition and tell your U.S. Representative and Senators to support and pass H.R. 899, a bill that includes a single sentence that states, "The Department of Education shall terminate on December 31, 2018.”

Education is not the responsibility of the federal government, but the responsibility of parents first and communities second. The absolute highest level of civil authority over education permitted under the Constitution is State government. 


Your Contact Information

Dear U.S. Senators and U.S. Representative:

As your constituent, I urge you to work with your colleagues to abolish the U.S. Department of Education.

I firmly believe that, with the exception of the schools within the District of Columbia itself, the federal government has no lawful authority to operate in the realm of public education.

As a permanent remedy, I demand that you co-sponsor H.R. 899 -- a single-sentence bill introduced on February 7, 2017, that states, "The Department of Education shall terminate on December 31, 2018.”

Once again: Education is not the responsibility of the federal government, but the responsibility of parents first and communities second. The absolute highest civil governing authority permitted under the Constitution to influence education is the individual State.

I am watching your actions on this.

Sincerely, YOUR NAME AND ADDRESS

It should be up to the states to educate our children, not the federal government.

2018 will come sooner than you think ladies and gentlemen, and if you think not just continue governing against the will of the people and I can assure you that the people will send constitutionally minded challengers to replace members of both parties who stand for the status quo (attempting to fool the American people). Establishment politicians of both parties are finished and the people will win in the end. The Department of Education is not and has never been constitutional. That responsibility is the purview of the sovereign citizen and the sovereign state in which that said citizen resides, not the Federal government.
