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.
“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.”
“Elected officials from both political parties somehow conclude that personal information collected or seized without a warrant by the federal government belongs to the government,” USPIE asserts, “thereby granting government the right and obligation to integrate all personal information to make it accessible to all government agencies as well as the private sector.”
Parents have the right to choose the most appropriate educational opportunity for their children, including home school, public school, or private school.
