The Department of Education was created in 1979. It is currently led by Arne Duncan, the Secretary of Education.

History of the Department of Education

A previous Department of Education was created in 1867 but was soon demoted to an Office in 1868.  As an agency not represented in the president's cabinet, it quickly became a relatively minor bureau in the Department of the Interior (I 16. ). In 1939, the bureau was transferred to the Federal Security Agency, where it was renamed the Office of Education (FS 1. ). In 1953, the Federal Security Agency was upgraded to cabinet-level status as the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare, but kept the SuDoc number of FS 1. until 1969.
