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.

If the U.S. Government had control of the desert, there would be a shortage of sand in no time at all.... Let's get their claws out of education before we experience a shortage of educated students.

The federal government only knows to use "the one size fits all" method to solve problems. This is an arbitrary, wasteful and totally unacceptable way to manage education. It is up to the locals who know the prevailing conditions to manage their affairs. Government should not be in the education business.

I am a retired high school teacher, and I honestly believe the national government needs to get OUT of the education business.

The department of education, at the federal level is unnecessary and should be eliminated.
