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.

This is just another form of government wast. Power grab over the people - we need to stop wasting money we don't have. Federal Education dept. is a wast of money and time. Put the power back to the people and their communities. (talk to a teacher)

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.

Get the government out of education. Parents should decide their children's education needs.
