U.S. Parents Coalition Launches Petition to End Federal Education Department
The Federal Government has no business involving itself in the education of our children. Since the Department of Education was established, the quality of schools has diminished, and they have become nothing more than indoctrination centers.
Parents have the primary responsibility to educate their children, whether by sending them to locally controlled public schools, sending them to private schools, or by homeschooling. The choice is for the parents to make.

A national coalition of United States parents and state leaders focused on returning education policy back to parents and local communities has launched a petition to end the federal department of education.
“The Federal Department of Education should be abolished because it is costly and ineffective, it is unjust and unethical, it is too political, and it is unconstitutional,” begins the petition at whitehouse.gov. “We, the undersigners, call upon President Donald Trump to keep his campaign promise to close the Federal Department of Education and end all Common Core aligned standards and testing.”
The petition was launched May 11 by United States Parents Involved in Education (USPIE), a nationwide coalition of parents and leaders who say they are “fed up with being ignored on education policy” and have now “joined forces to abolish the US Education Department and put an end to all federal education mandates.”
