After the White House made a startling proposal on Thursday to combine the departments of Labor and Education as a way to save resources, former Obama-era officials from the two agencies warned that such a move would shortchange both workers and students.
Under the Trump administration’s plan, the agencies would merge to become the Department of Education and the Workforce, with staff answering to a single Cabinet secretary. Combining the two would end up “eliminating duplication of effort between the two agencies and maximizing skill-building efforts,” the White House said.

I suspect that what he'd really like to do is to just eliminate both departments altogether, and that's really a fairly mainstream position among Republicans.

Baby steps...
