Abolish the Department of Education

The John Birch Society

Today, the majority of students in the public school system are being increasingly dumbed down by the “education” they are receiving. The radical, left-wing education reform — with its anti-American, amoral ideologies continues its march in public schools, leaving parents no choice but to get their kids out of the public school system.

To help solve this issue, members of Congress are seeking to pass legislation to terminate the unconstitutional and Deep State controlled Department of Education. H.R. 899, sponsored by Representative Thomas Massie (R-Ky.) and S. 323, sponsored by Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.) look to abolish the Department of Education. 

These two bills are identical and consist of only a single sentence that states, “The Department of Education shall terminate on December 31, 2021.” 

Abolishing the Department of Education 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 Department of Education violates the Constitution.

Additionally, the federalization of U.S. education policy is enabling spread of curriculum that promotes left-wing values and that dumbs down students. These include Common Core and the Every Student Succeeds Act that codified the former. Furthermore, the Biden Department of Education is actively promoting critical race theory and the 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 Department of Education 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 S. 3232 and to completely get the federal government out of education policy.
