Bill Seeks to Abolish the Department of Education
Local Government Committee (LGC) Report
LGC Reports are a compilation of notes taken at LG meetings, and information shared with the LGC.
Reports do not reflect the official positions of the Bonneville County Republican Party. We encourage the reader to research information and consider all sides of any issue. The intent of the LGC is to inform citizens of Bonneville County and encourage them to become involved in all levels of their community.
While there was no local school info to report we thought it important to share this.

Microsoft Founder, Bill Gates, who financed Common Core with, ultimately, $2 billion, signed an agreement with the United Nations' Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) to
UN Asst. Secretary-General Robert Muller, admits the curriculum is based on the books of Alice A. Bailey, one of the Founders of the occult New Age Movement. She was also a key figure in theosophy, the group that helped inspire the National Socialists (Nazis) in Germany.
The "spirits" Bailey channeled helped her predict a new global religion that would "smash" biblical Christianity, national sovereignty, and everything else at odds with [their socialist philosophies]”.
H.R. 899 Addresses the Following:
• The federal government does not have the authority to dictate how and what children should learn.
• The Department of Education has been corrupted and bogged down by private interests, contentious politics, and general bureaucratic inefficiency and is doing more harm than good. It should be terminated by Dec. 31, 2022.
• Education cannot be shaped by a uniform, “one-size-fits-all”. Only states and local districts can understand the needs of schools and the students that attend them on an individual level."
This one-sentence-long Bill is sponsored by Kentucky U.S. Representative Thomas Massie, who introduced it on February 5, 2021. There are currently 20 Co-Sponsors, with the following states endorsing the legislation:
