Senate Bill that would do away with the Department of Education, that’s what one Senator has proposed for Mississippi. Senator Angela Hill has submitted a bill that could potentially get rid of the Department of Education in Mississippi.
Senate Bill 2016 says that it would reduce the general fund appropriation to the state department of education and then transfer those funds to the teacher instructional materials fund for 2018. However, Hill says that she believes the entire department could be dissolved completely.
“We survived up until the 70s without a U.S. Department of Education and our schools were doing a lot better before we created that bureaucracy,” Hill said.
