Format: Electronic Book
Ministry/Author: Charlotte Thompson Iserbyt
Description: Although Ronald Reagan had made abolishing the unconstitutional U.S. Dept. of Education one of his most important campaign prom- ises while running for President in 1979-1980, once elected he made a very strange choice for his Secretary of Education, T. H. Bell from Utah, who had not only been a former state superintendent of schools and United States Commissioner of Education under President Ford, but who also had lobbied hard for the creation of the U.S. Depart- ment of Education, the very Department President Reagan would require him to abolish. Fox in hen house if ever there was one.
