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.”
