Petition Statement

Change the U.S. Department of Education from a dictator of school policy to that of a research, advisory and resource organization.
There are currently 1,444 signatures. NEW goal - We need 2,000 signatures!

Petition Background

The DOE has wasted billions trying to impose counterfeit reforms on public education. High stakes, useless testing has demoralized teachers, narrowed the curriculum and left parents on the sidelines. Student achievement has not improved. The DOE could help by becoming a research, resource and advisory organization. As stated in the 10th Amendment, we should leave public education as a state responsibility.
