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.

The citizens of Kansas should decide what's best for their children, not Washington politicians. Kansans should decide what our students eat in their lunches, not a president's wife. Get rid of the DOE NOW! No more threats and interference from politicians in Washington.

Both of my parents were teachers, I also raised three children in this system. It is completely failed and non-responsive to any input. It is driven ONLY by the money mongers in Washington and it is time to END this madness. Dissolve the Department of Education it is unconstitutional to begin with!

Please close the Dept of Education. There is no need for them to be involved in the education of my grandchildren. Let the States and the local government, along with the community make those decisions. Amazingly, we have the ability to do this!

If you look at scores before and after the Department of Education was created the answer of what to do is self-evident.

We have proven throwing money at schools does not improve education nor does promise an increase in rest scores. NM is high on the list for money spent and very low in quality results. Get the RED out of education and give the local school system a chance.
