There is current debate as to the role of the ISBE and whether or not its autonomous relationship with the [[Illinois Governor|governor]] and the [[Illinois legislature|state legislature]] is appropriate. In 2002, the Office of the Governor proposed the creation of a monolithic statewide department of education to replace the ISBE. However, direct control of the new department would fall under the state governor's jurisdiction. The structure would mimic the system employed by the [[Hawaii State Department of Education]], which has no local school districts. Opponents to the proposal argue that local communities would lose control over what their children would learn in public schools and the means by which those public schools operate.
