Bill Introduced to Abolish Dept. of Education

Yes! One would think that with the Democrats’ visceral opposition to Secretary DeVos that even some of them would support this bill.

On the same day the Senate confirmed President Trump’s secretary of Education pick by a historically narrow margin, a House Republican introduced legislation to abolish the entire department Betsy DeVos will lead.

Kentucky Rep. Thomas Massie’s bill is only a page long, after merely stating the Department of Education would terminate on Dec. 31, 2018.

Massie believes that policymakers at the state and local levels should be responsible for education policy, instead of a federal agency that’s been in place since 1980.

    Excellent proposal.  And about time.

    Well, why don’t you have your family member ask her and report back to us “bozoids”. While you’re at it, read up on how wrong you were about trucks being used to transport North Dakota crude.

    Obviously only great nations can concern themselves with educating their children. We can expect to see more & more basic services being gutted as our economy slips and our standards of living continue to decline.

    The states educate the children and would continue to do so even when this bill passes.
