Betsy DeVos was confirmed as President Trump's secretary of Education. At the same time a bill was introduced by another Republican to abolish her department entirely.

The bill was written by Rep. Thomas Massie from Kentucky and if the bill would go through, the Department of Education would be terminated by the end of next year (2018). According to Massie, the education policy should not be set by bureaucrats in Washington but by local communities.

The bill was signed by seven other Republicans.

Massie's press release read -"Neither Congress nor the President, through his appointees, has the constitutional authority to dictate how and what our children must learn. /.../ D.C. bureaucrats cannot begin to understand the needs of schools and its students on an individual basis. It is time that we get the feds out of the classroom, and terminate the Department of Education."

Previously also President Reagan has been fond of dismantling the Department of Education.
