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

Common Core has done nothing but confused parents and students and harmed our school systems way of teaching, Time to get back to the three R's and get the Feds out of what should be local decisions, and stop pushing the teaching of Islamic doctrine in so many of our schools across the Nation this is not the middle east students here need to learn about America and American ways, As it is now College students don't know American or World History and it seems the only thing that they are being taught is how to protest.

The DOE should be done away with. Our children are being taught how to overthrow America and how bad America is, they know nothing about American history Most don't even know the vice president is. This is a state function and should be turned over to the states. Semper Fi

The common core is not working, more students are being left behind if they can't keep up. We need to get back to the basics reading, writing and math, so that our children can come out of school with the basics to be self sufficient. To go on and learn a trade or continue to higher education. Go back to the way our founding fathers intended government to work......
