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 U.S. Dept. of Education is to big and over reaches with their rules and Regulations. One size does not fit all. This develops one sided or bias thinking.

I believe the states not federal government should take responsibility for education of our children. Families must be involved in their children's education. I do believe their should be some oversight to make sure the education is effective and efficient and family members are truly involved to make sure that education is not progressive indoctrination. Hail President Reagan

We need to get public education out of the hands of the federal government. Common Core is not what it was meant to be. It dumbs the kids down by not challenging them. They don't know multiplication facts, spelling, writing, and respect. Go into the new learning classrooms and you will get angry that they are not learning what is needed for college. Most kids when they graduate from high school today need 2 years in a 2 yr. college to learn what they need to graduate from college.
