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

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.

Education should NOT be in the domain of the Federal Govt. Education lends itself perfectly to administration at the LOCAL level.

The Constitution does NOT enumerate the creation of this 'alphabet soup', of Federal agencies which the Congress And Executive branches have created, especially the Department of Education. Therefore, according to the Amendment X, these belong to the States or the People. Quit your power hungry, overreaching and money grubbing ways. NoT ALL the people are asleep at the wheel. Some of us are watching you all. We are not happy with what we see!

The continual statist and progressive population must indoctrinate young children to propagate their Marxist and pagan ideology. They have spent > than 100 years to control the masses. The individual, always the American Idea to be destroyed. My daughter and I now homeschool my 2 youngest grandchildren. The public schools are intolerable everywhere.

When education situations are dealt with at the state and local levels, the schools get better attention so the students can be better educated.

Both biblically and morally this is a responsibility of parents first and local communities. Federal gov should be out of the picture.

My Senators from Michigan are both Democrats and have done nothing to support the State of Michigan, or the new President. Both from the Detroit area, both worthless, in my opinion. I can only hope that they do the right thing and support this bill so WE can make education in our public schools better, not the Federal Government!!
