The Department of Education was originally created in 1867, but was quickly moved to a minor part of the Department of the Interior. The original purpose that the department served was mostly data collection to help set up schooling programs that would be more effective. In 1890, the main goal of the department was to help support colleges and universities that were created through land grants.
