Video - On Ending the Department of Education

At today’s legislative crackerbarrel meeting in Rapid City, a question was asked about HCR 1003 which calls on congress to end the federal Department of Education, and where the education funding would come from that currently comes through the federal Department of Education.

Senator Bruce Rampelberg pointed out that the Department of Education was only formed about 25 years ago, and since then, has imposed a lot of regulations and requirements on education dollars that come through the hands of the federal government. He said that money could be block-granted back to the states without the federal Department of Education.
