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.

I totally support this - agree with it 100%!! Be done with this money sucking department that conducts surveys, doesn't implement necessary actions to improve this nation's education. This department has too much power and they make too much money with ZERO return on the American tax payer's investment! Do away with this federal bureaucracy! PLEASE.

Control of Education does not belong in Washington DC. It has been proved: DC does not have the intelligence to do it correctly.

Historically, the United States Department of Education has succeeded only in spending money, not in enhancing the education of our children. By every measurable means, including its own test scores, the Department of Education has failed to live up to its mandate. It is now time to abolish this federal bureaucracy and allow parents to address their children's education on the local level.

We have arguably the worst public schools in the country----thanks AFT! People from all walks of life should be able to choose the best school choices for their children----and these decisions should be decided at the local level, not from some bean counters in Washington! Let's pink-slip a bunch of bureaucrats and let them try to find meaningful work away from the swamp, if they have the ability to do so. Enough mediocrity, already! Stop top-down education choices!

It's past time to start lopping off federal controls to every aspect of our lives. Because of misguided emotions, our country is in deep financial trouble. Because of a corrupt bureaucratic system of a very large and vocal group of people we citizens are being bled financially. People who are on fixed incomes are losing homes under the protection of our own government by ways of over taxation. Money from our federal tax dollars does nothing to appease these people and nothing that our tax dollars are paying for will curb their insatiable desire for money. Give control back to the communities. Stop having our citizens paying extortion at both ends, federal & local.

Only Liberalism and Hate is being taught in Public Schools We need the Golden Rules to be taught there. Common Core is just another tool to leave the slower learning children behind. Such Uncaring, self promoting Liberal "Devils"; like Jimmy Carter and the corrupt Clinton's have no experience with the less fortunate. They abuse their position in life to make them rich and powerful. They should be put in jail for breaking Constitutional Laws! They should be charged with derelict of duty and for fraud against the Middle Class. Liberalism is deceitful and Must Be Stopped. Abolish the Department of Education, it is teaching our children to Hate the USA and robbing them of being thankful and respectful of their freedoms. We the People are being robbed and lied to by our Teachers and their Greedy Unions, who have been instructed by the Jimmy Carters, the Hillary Clintons, the Obamas and Chuck Sumer to Lie, cheat and steal from We the Middle Class. Very Corrupt Groups within our Government are infiltrating and destroying our USA with their teaching of Fascism, Communistic beliefs in ou Public Schools. Our Government is failing our children through The Department of Education.

I look at the result of all these billions of tax dollars allocated to this Department and simply ask myself, "Are the children smarter? Are they better educated?" The answer is no. So why keep throwing money away on a dept that hasn't justified its self? SAT scores aren't higher. Literacy isn't higher. It's time to end Jimmy Carter's grand experiment. It has failed us.

Federal bureaucrats need to be out of education. Our nation's schools need localized control and accountability. Not to mention, we need to reduce national spending. Cutting unnecessary programs and departments is the logical thing to do.

Please dismantle the lefts favorite propaganda, manipulation, and funding playground. America has never needed political big brother to micro manage the education of our children. Local governments can better respond to the will of the people.
