Trump vows to break up Department of Education, redistribute its functions to states

Former President Donald Trump spoke in Davenport, Iowa, on Monday to deliver his platform on education issues as his 2024 presidential campaign kicks into high gear.

During the speech, Trump stated that his administration had extensively studied the possibility of breaking up the Department of Education altogether and reallocating its functions to the states, earning raucous applause.

"We studied it very closely and I was getting ready to do it, pull the trigger," he said. "The long-term goal, but now it's a short-term goal, of breaking up the federal Department of Education and redistributing its functions to the states."
