Department of Education to Eliminate 'Mother,' 'Father' From Federal Student Aid Forms
The U.S. Department of Education recently announced that it will no longer use the terms "mother" and "father" when collecting information about a student's legal parents when those parents apply for federal student aid. Instead of using the words "mother" and "father," the new Free Application for Federal Student Aid form (FAFSA) will use "Parent 1" and "Parent 2."

The announcement states that the changes to the 2014-2015 federal student aid form "more accurately and fairly assess students' need for aid" and that "Gender-specific terms fail to capture income and other information from one parent when a student's parents are in a same-sex marriage under state law but not federally recognized under the Defense of Marriage Act."

Secretary of Education Arne Duncan said, "All students should be able to apply for federal student aid within a system that incorporates their unique family dynamics…. ...

"The Department of Education ... "

Should be renamed to conform to it's present activities.

"Department of Political Correctness"
"Department of Stupid linguistics"
"Department of Puerile ideas"

Removing mother/father is the mark of more moral decline in politicians and bureaucrats

Blame divorce and its causes.

This is nothing new, but then again, I'm from California!

Back in 1983 I applied for admission to the state university system. The form I filled out then did not ask me for the names of my parents, but instead asked me for the name (singular) of the "parent or guardian" with whom I was presently residing.

The present administration can have a change of heart, and of course there will be a new administration in, in four years, which can make the forms more accurate rather the keeping the ill-defined terms that are proposed.

Jim, the reason I get uptight when specific new laws are being discussed is because there is never any turning back. Once a bill, or whatever is signed into law...that's it; once approved, I don't see anyone ever repealing it. Whether it be gay unions, or reversal of the adultery laws which is being considered, I just don't hold out hope anymore after a new law takes effect...brave new world where anything goes and God is just a thought.

What is education? Then, whatever this so-called education may be, why must money have to be borrowed in order to have it?

No big deal on the terms by the way, professing Christians already have no problem with voluntary State birth certificate applications and the language contained therein.

It's time to call your senators and officials. Give the reasons why gay marriage hurts families and God. And do the same in church.

This storm warning has been building for years. The authorities have been requesting mom's SSN, address, state, phone, email, bank account number and dad's SSN, address, state, phone, email and back account number for years. The assumption has been that they're not necessarily at the same physical address.

Now with so many born out of wedlock and by IVF there's no longer any reason to believe that there's exactly one dad and one mom for each child. This decision will not be reversed even if Romney (or Biden) gets four years (2016-20) in the oval office.
