Abolish department of education

After the Newt Gingrich -led "revolution" in 1994 had taken control of both Houses of Congress, federal control of and spending on education soared. That trend continued unabated despite the fact that the Republican Party made abolition of the Department a cornerstone of 1996 platform and campaign promises, calling it an inappropriate federal intrusion into local, state, and family affairs. [20] The GOP platform read: "The Federal government has no constitutional authority to be involved in school curricula or to control jobs in the market place. This is why we will abolish the Department of Education, end federal meddling in our schools, and promote family choice at all levels of learning." [20]

In March, NCADP had the pleasure to host David Harris and Andrea James at our March Webinar. Both innovators in social justice and reformers of our criminal justice system discussed how to confront the roots of our unsustainable criminal justice system. David emphasized the case for community justice, the necessity of community political capital, and the distribution of resources across systems, like education. His scholarship reframes criminal justice to focusing on healing and justice for communities. Andrea, the Founder and Executive Director of the National Council For Incarcerated and Formerly Incarcerated Women and Girls and the Families for Justice as Healing, provided an application of theory to practice, describing the community work she practices daily.
