Marco Rubio says We don’t need a national school board; we don’t need a Department of Education. (full story http://ow.ly/RGZYG)

The Department of Education Organization Act (Public Law 96-88) and signed into law by President Jimmy Carter on October 17, 1979, became effective on May 4, 1980. This act of Congress separated education out of the Dept. of Health, Education and Welfare (HEW), making it a stand-alone department.

By federal standards, this bureaucracy is teeny tiny with only 5,000 employees.

The Framers of our Constitution defined thirty (30) enumerated powers of federal government listed here: (30 enumerated powers http://ow.ly/RH44w)

Search those thirty enumerated powers as you wish, you’ll not find even once the word “education”.

Ninth and Tenth Amendments set a clear demarcation between authority of the states and limited authority of federal government.

Amendment IX

The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.

Amendment X

The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

Tell your Congressional delegation of two senators and one representative to repeal Public Law 96-88, the Department of Education Organization Act.

Let’s re-align federal government with the Constitution.

I believe the States can best govern our home concerns, and the General Government our foreign ones.” –Thomas Jefferson
