Statement before the Senate Committee on Governmental Affairs

Shanker addresses the Senate committee on the issue of committee bill S. 991, which calls to create a separate cabinet level Department of Education. Shanker is opposed to this separate department and states that separate committees have been created in the past and have contributed nothing. Shanker states that a separate department may give a negative hew to the Department of Education; he also says that it may narrow the public’s perspective of what the Department of Education can do. Shanker suggests that the Department of Education will be stronger if left within the realms of HEW (Health Education and Welfare Administration).
