Anyone else find it ironic that on the same day President Barack Obama shares his wish list to further expand the federal government’s role in education that his Education Secretary, Arne Duncan, gets bamboozled on a question about the constitutionality of the Department of Education?
You hear Secretary Duncan rambling about the funding for the department because he can’t answer the question. The Constitution doesn’t authorize it and states plainly in the Tenth Amendment that, “powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively; or to the people.”
I don’t remember reading about education in the enumerated powers listed in the Constitution. Perhaps Secretary Duncan needed a better civics education in high school.
