U.S. Representatives working to abolish the U.S. Department of Education


West Michigan's Betsy DeVos is the new Education Secretary, but Congressman Justin Amash, of Grand Rapids, is co-sponsoring a bill that would eliminate the department.


A spokesperson says that while relatively little federal money for public education comes from Washington, federal bureaucracy and mandates reduce the total amount of resources available to public schools and cannot properly account for the individualized needs of students.


Along with Amash, the bill is being co-sponsored by Rep. Thomas Massie, R-Ky. Other co-sponsors include Rep. Andy Biggs, R-Ariz.; Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah; Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla.; Rep. Jody Hice, R-Ga.; Rep. Walter Jones, R-N.C.; and Rep. Raul Labrado, R-Idaho.
