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.

When the federal government gets involved in a states rights issue it always fails. It becomes a political a tool used by the party in the majority To bully and coerce the public school systems to conform to the party agenda. That is insidious corruption of the first order, as the previous administration has blatantly demonstrated. The federal government has no authority under the Constitution to interfere in the education system. A bunch of jackasses interpreted and twisted the Constitution to suit themselves. Get the federal government out of education!

Yes the government don't need to be in our schools. Our government is letting young adult graduate high school that can't even read.

I am a retired public school teacher of 30 years and have abhorred the waste of taxpayers' money since the Fed DOE was funded. There is nothing the Feds can do that the state and local governments cannot do for themselves. Plus, citizens/parents can CONTROL the elected officials and their decisions in a more manageable way when not on a national level. Education for children is BEST served by bidding Good Riddance to the DOE and returning all funds to the state and local governments where it belonged before Central Govt. was endorsed by both the Dems & GOP. The Founding Fathers were right. See the 10th Amendment

I think our state department of education is more than adequate to deal with education in Arkansas. As a retired educator myself, I had to deal with too much paperwork and no extra time for it. Teachers need to be able to teach without the federal government's interference.
