ABSTRACT
This article reports that U.S. President Ronald Reagan is being criticized by his supporters for failing to fulfill his oft-reiterated promise to dispense with the federal Department of Education (DOE). In its platform, the Republican Party pledged itself to eliminate the DOE. Reagan himself has urged it passionately, even as late as his January 19, 1982 press conference. The President's Cabinet officer for education, Terrel H. Bell, has given strong lip service to the need for abolishing the DOE. But Bell calls for erecting in its place a National Education Foundation.
