The new Agency would be called the Department of education and employment, but these plans never get off the ground.

According to the magazine, the Department of education is one of the smallest facilities of the Federal government, approximately 3,900 employees. The paper reported that the workforce will shrink by 10 percent, the result of a hiring freeze initiated by President Trump, soon after he took office.

The Department was promised to one of the three authorities, Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry has to eliminate them during the 2012 campaign. The proposal was overshadowed as Perry, now the Secretary of energy, the name of one of the agencies, during a TV debate.
