Members of Congress are seeking to pass legislation to terminate the unconstitutional and Deep State-controlled Department of Education (DoE).

H.R. 899 is sponsored by U.S. Representative Thomas Massie (R-Ky.) and cosponsored by 28 other representatives.

Writing in support of his bill, Rep. Massie stated:

I have introduced a bill to terminate the Department of Education.

There is no Constitutional authority for this federal bureaucracy to exist.

Abolishing the DoE is essential for multiple reasons. First, nowhere does the U.S. Constitution give the federal government any authority over education policy. Under the 10th Amendment, education policy lies with the states and the people. By its very existence and shaping of U.S. education policy, the DoE violates the Constitution.

Additionally, the federalization of U.S. education policy is enabling spread of curriculum that promotes leftist values, historical revisionism, and uniform math and reading standards intended to confound and dumb down students. These include Common Core and the Every Student Succeeds Act that codified the former. Furthermore, the Biden DoE is actively promoting critical race theory and the revisionist 1619 Project.

The Left understands that if it can control our children’s education, it will control the future. Having a centralized education department under their influence makes it significantly easier for the Left to accomplish its goals. These damaging policies have persisted since the department’s creation, and simply electing a Republican president will not fix any of them.

The solution is to abolish the DoE and its accompanying bureaucracy and programs, none of which are legal to begin with. Doing so would not only be a major step toward obeying the Constitution, but it would deprive the Deep State of a major tool that it is using to indoctrinate the next generations with Marxist and anti-Americanist ideology.

Tell your U.S. representative and senators to support H.R. 899 and to completely remove the federal government out of education policy.

Although we provide a way to easily email legislators, we know from long experience that it takes a lot more interaction with your legislators to get your point across than that provided by emails alone.

That's why we provide an easy way not only to email them, but to contact them by phone, tweet, and even video message them.

Contact your U.S. Representative and Senators

Please help abolish the Department of Education by contacting your U.S. representative and senators. Inform them of the department's unconstitutionality, its promotion of Marxist indoctrination, and its dumbing-down of our children.
