Rep. Roger Williams (R-TX) has become the ninth co-sponsor of a bill that would terminate the U.S. Department of Education.
“I have said from day one that the federal government should focus on three things: defend our borders, maintain our infrastructure, collect our taxes — and then get out of the way,” Williams tells Breitbart News. “A long history of Washington bureaucrats inserting their failed policies into our children’s classrooms has resulted in a sub-par and often failing educational system.”
Kentucky Rep. Thomas Massie (R) introduced the bill, H.R. 899, in February. The measure consists of only one sentence: “The Department of Education Shall Terminate on December 31, 2018.”
Let’s return control of education and educational spending to parents, teachers, & school boards, where it belongs: https://t.co/838xITPUAo
