For every 1,000 signatures, NationofChange will send a letter to President Trump demanding that the federal government not pull their funding for public schools.

On April 26, 2017, Donald Trump signed an executive order to begin pulling federal money and government out of K-12 public education in an attempt to return school control back to state and local responsibilities. This executive order is being called “Education Federalism Executive Order” and will be reviewed and modified/repealed by Education Secretary Betsy DeVos

Trump has also overturned a series of Obama’s education-related actions recently that could hurt public education. His administration has ended a grant program that was implemented to help local districts boost socioeconomic diversity within their schools, an order stating federally funded teacher preparation programs be evaluated based on the academic outcomes of those teachers' students and a program that would help identify failing schools and what can be done to improve them.

We need to make sure our public schools are getting the funding and attention they need from federal government, and not place the responsibility of public schools solely on state and local shoulders.

  • “Fascist education is moral, physical, social, and military: it aims to create a complete and harmoniously developed human, a fascist one according to our views.” ― Benito Mussolini
  • Pulling funding from education is another display of the disregard this administration has for the citizens of this country and, in particular, the children. There has been no legislation or even discussion about the what the future looks like for our kids. We need to shift our focus from a small increase in the bottom-line of corporations, and investing in the real future of this country, our kids.

  • The strength of a democracy is directly related to having an educated electorate. It is necessary that the federal government determine the the standards of a quality education for the country as a whole.
